WOMAN BORN WITH RARE SKIN DISEASE: MY PARENTS LOVE ME, THAT’S ENOUGH

Singapore – She grabbed the attention of the nation when she was born in 1991, due to her marked difference in appearance. Doctors had not expected her to live past her teenage years, but here’s Ng Poh Peng, alive and well at 26 years old.

Miss Ng suffers from congenital ichthyosis, an incurable and rare hereditary skin disorder that causes her skin to flake off, leaving her skin underneath pink and wrinkled.

She hardly leaves the house due to her sensitivity to sunlight, but when she does, it’s hard not to attract stares and double takes from passers-by. She used to be hurt by the gawking, but now she says, “My parents love me, that’s enough.”
