Children (and adults!) with EB Simplex

  • Hi there! My name is Alexus Puder and this is me and my daddy, Kyle Puder. We both were born with EB simplex along with my uncle Leigh... I'm 4.5 months old and I've been in the hospital 2 times since I was born.. Every day my mommy and daddy have to look after my wounds and blisters... It's very very painful but I know they are only trying to help.. The doctor gave my mommy and daddy special stuff to put on my owies called Mepitel and Mepitac, along with a special cream to help my owies not get infected... Every day we pray for a cure to be found... My daddy drives the doctors here crazy, because he's lived with it his whole life and tells the docs he did everything the doc told him not too (ie played hockey as a child and does construction for work)... My mommy and daddy don't wrap my wounds because if they do, more blisters and sores form ... My parents say I'm a very brave and very strong little boy to have to deal with this. My big sister is a big help too.. I know when I'm older I can count on her to help me... My daddy says he wants me and my sister to take self defense classes because he knows I'll get bullied in school because of this disease... I hope people are more understanding then that when I get old enough to go to school..
