The disease began when he was just six months old with symptoms like rashes in the arms, legs, and neck.

The dermatologist had said to Kai’s mother about how rare and incurable the disease is, not even a long-term fix.

Further, she said that he had a blood injection too due to the pustules appearing on his body. Due to blood infections, kai was rushed into the hospital for antibiotics.
