A young girl is facing 'living hell' because of a rare disorder which makes her skin appear like stone. She suffers from an incurable condition which causes her skin to become scaly.

There is little health care available in the young girl's district, meaning she has to travel into the city for medical attention. Dr Yash Upender, a dermatologist from Dantewada Hospital, specified the condition as 'epidermolytic ichthyosis'.

Vitamin A tablets can help to improve the skin's appearance, but do not improve the underlying inflammation. Doctors in India say there have been few cases in the country which would assist research into Rajeshwari's condition.

Know more about the disease in the below slideshow.

More than professional curiosity I feel so sad for her. Hope there are treatments for it.
