NOMA
Ulcers form on the mouth, slowly eating away at the flesh until only yellowing teeth and jaw bone is visible.
This is not a scene from a horror film, but a condition called noma which still kills 90 percent of impoverished children who catch it.
Mostly found in Asia and Africa, bacteria gets into the body as a result of poor hygiene or contaminated water, causing the flesh on face to become gangrenous and wither away.
The disease, also known as cancrum oris, is rapidly progressing and affects the genital areas as well as the mouth.
Once, the condition was far more common, even in developed European countries and in the United States.
It was widespread among inmates and concentration camps during World War II due to the horrendous conditions.
Noma occurs when bacteria get into the body, generally a result of poor hygiene, contaminated water, lack of nutrition or diseases which cause the immune system to weaken.

EMYCETOMA aka Madura’s foot
This is a fungal infection capable of spreading all throughout the body but is typically found on the legs and feet.
Initially one suffering from this disease will notice a swelling on the foot, followed by a discharge of pus.
The fungus then spreads, causing huge eruptions all over the appendage and serious damage to the surrounding tissue. Eventually this inhibits the use of the foot or leg.
Madura's foot is actually fairly painless which often leads to a late diagnosis.
There are currently no vaccines to treat it but it can be avoided by keeping your hands and feet clean as well as emerging shoes while in fields and other natural areas.
Although it is endemic in Africa, India and the Central and South Americas, it has also been found in southern US states and in homeless people or those suffering HIV.

FILARIAL WORM
Filarial worm is a parasite that has the ability to live in people's eyes.
It effects over 200 million people and is the second leading cause of blindness worldwide.
Filarial worms are not contained just in the eyeballs and when they occur elsewhere in the body they cause a condition called elephantiasis, which results in the lower extremities swelling up larger than normal.
Other potential symptoms include a rash, intense abdominal pain, arthritis and papules.
Curing filarial worm infections depends on exactly what type of filariasis one has, and is often treated with antibiotics.

CLARKSON’S DISEASE (SYSTEMIC CAPILLARY LEAK SYNDROME – SCLS)
SCLS is a condition in which one's blood vessels begin leaking plasma.
The plasma is then absorbed by the skin with nowhere to go - causing the person to start bloating like a balloon.
Although rare, the only way to treat Clarkson's disease is to to inject fluids into the body to counter the bloating.
This is a problem in itself since it takes three full days for the bloating to stop - and in the mean time it can lead to damage to vital organs and tissues ultimately causing death.
SCLS gets its name from Dr Bayard Clarkson, who first diagnosed the disease in 1960 in a patient who was experiencing spontaneous bloating.
Since then about 150 people have been diagnosed with Clarkson's disease. The cause is still unknown despite research.
