A 16-year-old girl, Shalini Yadav, who suffers from a skin disease known as Erythroderma has described her sad experiences in the hands of victimizers.

Her condition which causes her to shed her skin every 60 days has also gotten her expelled from school.

To prevent her skin from hardening, Yadav often applies water and lotion on her body to slow down the process.

The teenager is not the only bearing the brunt of her unfamiliar skin ailment. She states that her family have had to suffer as well.

Socially, she has not been able to have friendly relationships with her peers as they often keep her alienated because of her scary face.

“I wanted to study but they threw me out of school as the children would get scared by seeing my face.

“Everybody in the family is suffering because of my medical condition. But what is my fault? What sin did I commit to be cursed with such a disease. I want to live. Please help me, if you can.”
