Late last year there were reports in the media about a boy who was often mistaken for a doll. This was distressing for the mother who insisted that her baby was a normal boy but for a rare skin condition. He has a rare skin condition that gives him thick scales of skin. Though doctors warned his mother that he will probably not make it beyond the first few weeks of life he survived and is today 2 years old. But his skin keeps cracking up and his tight skin even caused his eyelids and lips to turn inside out.
