Singapore Debra International: Debra Singapore Support Group for Epidermolysis Bullosa. Sweet Bunny

Channel News Asia Singapore - On a recent documentary broadcast by Channel News Asia, I came to learn about a skin disease called epidermolysis bullosa or EB. I don't know all symptoms of epidermolysis bullosa but Epidermolysis Bullosa Disease is a rare group of diseases which cause the skin to be very brittle, interactions with the skin such rubbing, heat, scratching or even touching may induce blistering. Children who suffer from this are known as butterfly children because butterfly wings being very fragile akin to the children’s skin.

Channel News Asia Documentary - Watching the documentary ON Channel News Asia, really tugged at my heartstrings, I have gone thru a case of irritant contact dermatitis with my hands about a decade ago, a mere fraction of the pain and suffering both mentally and physically that butterfly children have to thru all their lives. There might not be a cure for it now but as medical technology advances, there is always hope.
