A family in California is meeting with medical experts Friday about their baby's rare skin condition that makes her nearly untouchable.
“This is the worst disease you’ve never heard of,” her mother, Kirsti Kinkle, told KCRA. “A clothing tag or rough fabric, or even me picking her up under her arm can cause blisters… There is no skin-to-skin contact.”
Two-month-old Kiira has a rare genetic skin disorder. It causes her skin to blister or tear at the slightest touch.
Her mother and father individually wrap each finger and toe every day to prevent Kiira from scratching and hurting herself.
So far, there is no cure.
Doctors at the University of Minnesota say they're trying to work on some kind of treatment.
