This is just creepy!

Full Story Here

From the story article:

" Three weeks ago, the skin on Yeargain's body began sloughing off.

Dr. Daniel Lozano, from the UCSD Regional Burn Center, said, "She lost skin in her entire body. It's rather dramatic to really see this coming off in sheets."

Even the membrane covering her internal organs -- her eyes, mouth, and throat -- began peeling away.

"Once the skin starts to slough, there's no stopping it," Lozano said. "

AIEEEE!!!!!!

Does someone have a link to that one man's account of his encounter with a flesh-eating virus?

Cheers!

Gross. That reminds me of one of the Hellraiser movies. That chick, something happened and she has no skin, and they make with the monkey love while she was skinless. God, that was a disturbing scene.

I thought if you lose skin (at least in that magnitude) it doesn't grow back, I guess because she wasn't a burn victim it didn't damage the bodies ability to grow it back? I really don't understand.

I think she was losing only skin however. burn victims usually have nevre damage.
