Wereblog has featured various kinds of rare diseases to educate everyone. However, many were left terrified, grossed, and loathed while some sympathized sufferers. These obscure diseases are pretty rare and that’s the good thing about it. But if you’re the unlucky person who happens to catch one, it’s a totally different story and that’s something Redditor gullibletrout and his wife learned the hard way.

It was in 2010 when a mysterious black spots suddenly began appearing on his wife’s hand.

In Redditor gullibletrout’s wife case, it’s possible that it was caused by a switch in birth control pills. But the good news is that they’re harmless, however there are some cases reported that they grow back.
