A woman has human nails growing out of her own hair follicles. The mysterous disease has doctors baffled and has landed Shanya Isom in the hospital.
According to Fox News, "Shanyna Isom, 28, from Memphis, Tenn., said the bizarre condition began three years ago after she suffered from a severe allergic reaction to steroids. Meant to treat her asthma, the steroids instead caused her to start itching all over within hours, and black bumps began to cover her legs."
The condition must be very painful, and worse yet, expensive. Poor woman has mounted up $250,000 in medical bills, and as yet, doctors do not know the cause of the mysterious disease.
If you have ever had an ingrown hair, you know how painful it can be. So imagine a hair follicle with nails growing out of it all over your body. If it were the steroid that caused the condition, shouldn't doctors warn us of the dangers of steroids.
If you have ever been prescribed steroids, you may know that they make you feel ill, but what they did to this young woman, may be the worst.
