Mother Reveals Why She Bathes Her Daughter Who Has 'Skin Like A Snake' In BLEACH Every Other Day


A young mum whose baby has 'skin like a snake' was told by medics to bathe the one-year-old in bleach every other day to ward off infection.
The unusual cleaning procedure is due to a rare condition which leaves the tot’s skin covered in scales.
Diagnosed with the rare autoimmune disorder lamellar ichthyosis, which sees her skin thicken and shed every couple of weeks, like a snake's, Raven Ford's daughter, Amelia Moe, cannot use soap as her skin is so sensitive.
But retail worker Raven, 23, of Superior, Wisconsin, USA – also a mum to Benjamin Faice, six, and Cole Ford, two – has been criticised for her hygiene routine, saying: “Because Amelia can’t use soap, I put two tablespoons of bleach in her bath water every other day.
“It’s controversial, and not everybody is comfortable with it, but it’s been recommended by dermatologists and it’s the only way to kill the bacteria under her scales.
“If we don’t do this, she can get infections or pockets of oil, which show up like yellow bumps on her scalp.”

Raven said she and her partner, officer worker Gary Moe, 43 -Amelia's dad - knew the moment she was born at St Mary’s Medical Centre in Duluth, Minnesota, that something was wrong.
