Woman’s Paper Skin a Walking Notepad
Posted on October 3, 2008
For this Chinese woman who suffers from a condition called artificial urticaria, her skin has served as a notebook for all the years of her life.
This strange medical anomaly has no ill effects, but most agree that it is very weird.
Huang Xiangji is a 50-year-old woman from Chengdu who uses her skin like writing paper.
Huang claims that when she writes a word on her skin by using her fingernail, the letters protrude from her skin a moment later.
“I used my body as a notebook for years,” says Huang.
Even as a child, she was able to do this and she would often create shopping lists on her arm before going out to the stores. (That’s one list you can’t misplace!)
