Born Mid 2013 Prem , with a Collodian Membrane Providing the Primary diagnosis of Itchyosis . Within the First month of life , Matilda had to overcome Meningitis and various Bacterial infections that will have a life long effect on her general quality of life.
Within the First Five years of life Matilda has had over come many life threatening Skin infections , Learn to communicate with Vision and hearing imperfections and manage all the joys of childhood with the restrictions her Skin & Arthritis have imposed. Matildas day to day life involves Skin dressing changes and lotion applications which is time consuming and painful. Typical additional Itchyosis restrictions are Lack of Sweat glands which leads to ineffective temperature control its very easy to over heat or become too cold. Fraile skin breaks and rubs very easily something as simple as a grabbing a pencil or putting on your shoes could be enough to harm the skin today. Fatigue - it is hard to run too far or be out in the sun too long without the skin becoming painful. Medical treatment requires frequent trips interstate. Matilda now 6 years old has a good quality of life , enjoys being outdoors watching Birds & Butterflys and has recently discovered cartwheels.
