Living with a rare skin disorder | The Skin We Wear | Full Episode

**This documentary contains images that may be disturbing to some viewers. Viewer discretion is advised.**
Harlequin Ichthyosis is a rare genetic disorder that causes thick and scaly skin that is prone to cracking and constant infections. In the past, babies born with this condition rarely live beyond the first few days. Today, sufferers are able to lead normal and productive lives - but not without obstacles..
From 2-hour long oil baths and constant moisturising, to stares and judgement from strangers, their struggles are physical, social and emotional..
Enter the lives of four individuals coping with Harlequin Ichthyosis in Singapore, Hong Kong and Vietnam. Three-year-old Zoe may have lost all her hands due to the condition, but she's not lost her joy for life. Despite being visibly different, 13-year-old Aliya navigates the teenage years with grace. Two-year-old Ngoc Bich is an orphan in Vietnam, waiting for a family to adopt her. And 26-year-old Mui Thomas' achievements are proof that a fulfilling life is possible even with a lifelong condition..

im literally 40 seconds in and so stunned by her confidence already, literally playing with her sister saying "where are my fingers!" and giggling about it
despite her illness she's such a happy child and her father clearly loves her so much

she is a precious little angel oh my god...
edit: i love how supportive her siblings are, what a wonderful family - he has done an amazing job as a father

I was born with eczema, always thought it was terrible and how my life was miserable. But after knowing that this kind of skin condition exists, it made me really sad, she's so confident and happy. I can relate alot to the fact that showering and bathing hurts. God bless this little girl.

Zoe's father deserves an award for the deep love and understanding he shows towards her and she's lucky to have a supportive family even though the mother is nowhere around.
Mui's also turned out to be a confident young woman, kudos to the couple who adopted her, hers is the worst type of itchyosis but she's strong and confident and wish her all the best.
The poor child from Vietnam, I hope and pray she gets adopted into a wonderful and loving family and she grows up to be a confident person.
I really relate to all this, especially what zoe's father said because I have a child with lamellar ichthyosis. After a long and difficult situation when she was a child and we knew very little about this type of skin condition, I am glad to say that today she is a beautiful, confident young lady and is currently enjoying her life in university and I pray that she graduates with a degree and goes forth into this world to claim her spot in the sun. For more information and tips, stories of similar children and families going through similar situations , please look up FIRST, Foundation for Ichthyosis and Related Skin types, based in the USA. Also please don't use soap as it dries out the skin, use a mild soap or put oats in the water to soften the skin.
