It makes you wonder how people can be so cruel.
For this Mum being judged takes on a whole new sinister tone.
Every time this mother takes her daughter out of the house she is judged. She is blamed. She is taunted.
She’s a bad mother. She’s cruel. Look at what she has done.
She is yelled at and called names. She is accused of harming her daughter.
When, in fact, she is striving to do the very opposite. She is striving to save her from a life of pain.
This little girl, five-year-old Bethany Wagstaff suffers from a rare form of eczema, which causes her skin to burn and blister when exposed to sunlight.
Her mum, Amy from Surrey in the UK, has to cover her in bandages to stop her scratching at her sores.
It’s a desperately painful condition for the little girl whose skin changed from red to white within seconds of being exposed.
But instead of strangers being sympathetic or kind to Amy what they do will make your stomach turn.
They accuse Amy of burning her daughter.
“When it gets really hot, I cover her in bandages to stop her from scratching at her blisters and sores, and people actually accuse me of burning my daughter.
“They shout at me, saying I’m a bad mother.” Amy told The Daily Mail.
But it isn’t just Amy they target.
“Sometimes they point and stare at Bethany - which makes her feel uncomfortable.
“It’s disgusting what people say. I don’t know why they are so cruel to a little girl. She’s dealing with so much she doesn’t need ignorant people pointing and shouting abuse.”
For 26-year old Amy life is tough, she has to apply sunscreen to Bethany’s skin six times daily and the little girl requires a bathes twice a day to prevent her skin from flaring up.
Amy says “If exposed to the sun, her skin will change colour from white to red within seconds. She is constantly scratching or picking at her skin.
Bethany was only six months old when Amy started to notice red patches. She was told initially it was a reaction to her breast milk, but switching to soy formula didn’t help.
