By Anna KolesnikovaPublished July 31, 2018 8:56:50Children’s haircuts in India are often influenced by their mothers, who used to make them with their hair in particular and sometimes even their eyes, the mother of a 16-year-old boy who was born with a condition that prevents his eyes from opening is quoted as saying.
The condition, known as a “candy mouth” was first described by Dr. Shobha Bhandari in the late 1990s, according to the Daily Mail.
The boy’s mother is a hairstylist by profession and is quoted by the paper as saying her son’s hair is like “a candy mouth”.
“I used to be able to open my eyes, but now it’s not easy, my eyes are still closed.
The first thing my mother used to do was to wash my hair and make me my own hair.
But now I don’t have time to wash it,” the mother, who asked to be identified only as Madhuri, told the Mail.
“She has made him so much hair, it looks like a candy mouth.
I have to wash the hair everyday and I have never been able to find my mother’s hair and now he has lost his eyes.”
She added that her son had never been diagnosed with the condition but that her husband and father had recently been diagnosed.
The child’s mother has been asked to explain the situation.
The child’s father, who requested anonymity, told The Hindu newspaper that his son had been born with the disorder, but did not know it was caused by a haircut.
“We were born with it, we were born in the United Kingdom and the hair was always in our hair, so it was not an issue,” he said.
“But when I saw the condition, I said, ‘We have to have this haircut.’
He had no choice.
I thought I could do nothing, but the doctor took care of him.”
Dr. Bhandarari said the condition was inherited and would have been treated if the child had been an intact girl.
Dr. Shomrat Kaul, a pediatrician who practices at the Tata Memorial Hospital, told NDTV that the child’s parents had also used hair transplants to grow hair, and that the condition would have not been detected until the child was about six months old.
“It is important to mention that all the patients here have a condition, but there is a certain amount of tolerance to it and if it is present, the condition will be treated,” he added.
Dr Kaul said he had spoken to the mother about her son, who is now a student, and had been asked if she could tell him what his parents had done.
“It is not known if there is an actual genetic difference between the parents, but I don, because it is very difficult for me to explain what my daughter did to him,” he told NDtv.
“The condition has a history, but it was the first time that we knew about it,” he continued.
“This is not something that can be cured.”
While the condition is usually diagnosed in the second or third trimester of pregnancy, it can cause severe facial disfigurement.
“A mother who has the condition may use other techniques, like hair transplations, or they may use a hair shampoo to get the hair in the face,” Dr. Kaul told NDnews.
