10 Weird Diseases

In this world of over 6 billion human beings, not everyone lives a life of fulfillment; apart from people suffering from AIDS, cancer, hepatitis and many diseases that you know, people suffer from far more peculiar disease that you even haven’t heard of. Today we take a look at 10 weirdest diseases in the world.

Note:

1. This list is, in no intention a “Top 10 list”, the purpose is just to list, not to rank.

2. Some people might find some of the pictures in this post to be grisly, gruesome and/or disturbing, so discretion is advised.

No 10. Trichotillomania

People suffering from this disease tend to pull out their hairs, be it from the head, eyelashes, nose or even from the unmentionables. Commonly known as trich, this disease can be caused by stress, depression or even graver agents such as a defective gene.

No 9. Aquagenic Urticaria

Sometimes wrongly described as allergy, it is an extremely rare condition in which the victim becomes sensitive to the ions found in non-distilled water, or in other words the sufferer experiences pain when in contact with water and that pain can last for anywhere between 10 to 100 minutes or even more. The worst part is, that you cannot even cry for your agony; your own tears can burn down your skin. Itchy, raised bumps known as hives develop as a consequence of contact with water. There is no treatment for this horrible disease yet.
