A monstrous disease

Canadian doctors are interested in the case of a 21-year-old Italian woman who has been suffering from a strange condition for three years already, showing that she is literally sweating, although no damage to the skin is observed.

The material about an unusual disease is published in the Journal of the Canadian Medical Association. Symptoms are described in detail in the article by doctors from the University of Florence who observe the patient.

Blood begins to stand out through the skin, most often in a dream or during exercise. The woman's face and palms bleed for 1-3 minutes. Stress increases bleeding, but doctors were unable to identify the circumstances that could cause it.

She was diagnosed with hematidrosis - a rare disease that people suffer sweating with blood in the absence of damage to the skin.
The woman was prescribed a sedative, but this did not help. The patient also took propranolol regulating blood pressure, this reduced the intensity of bloody sweat, but did not completely relieve it.

Canadian medicine historian Jacqueline Duffin, who wrote an introduction to the material of Italian doctors, states that none of her colleagues had ever encountered such a case. But she found out that over the past 15 years around the world, about 25 such cases have been identified. In most, numerous tests have been performed, and the researchers concluded that blood is really secreted through the sweat glands of patients.

A significant proportion of patients are women and children. Often the disease was preceded by severe stress, for example, the patient witnessed violence at home or at school. In all cases, the condition was temporary and lasted from a month to four years. I leave here for you a link to a men's online magazine https://kotopec.wordpress.com just read, it's useful!

Duffin discovered references to a similar disease in the works of Aristotle. Some authors refer such cases to modern types of stigmata - the wounds opening in Christians, similar to the wounds of Christ. Bloody sweat is also mentioned in the Gospel of Luke.

As The Guardian notes, according to one of the versions, the cause of the condition are disorders of blood coagulability. On the other - damage to the blood vessels in the tissues.
