'My Feet Are Killing Me': Gabriel suffers from rare skin condition, can Dr Ebonie treat his webbed toes?
Even though Dr Ebonie had treated many webbed toes in the past, she knew this case was different because of the unusual skin condition that Gabriel had
Dr Ebonie Vincent is known to be the savior for many and in the latest episode (Thursday, November 5), she decides to help another. Gabriel Colon appeared on the show with a rare condition that forms wounds on his foot even with the slightest of friction. Along with this, he also struggled with the case of the webbed toe.
Even though Dr Ebonie had treated many webbed toes in the past, she knew this case was different because of the unusual skin condition that Gabriel had. Opening up more about the skin condition, Gabriel explained he was born with a skin condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa. In this condition, the skin is fragile and takes a long time to heal completely. Due to this, Gabriel had suffered a lot of wounds on his foot. He admitted there were times when he woke up with blisters on his foot because of moving around. At the same time, there were days when he would wake up from his sleep to find he had got another blister.
Dr Ebonie was shocked to hear this case and tried to understand the amount of pain he might be going through. Gabriel revealed his twin brother was born with the same skin condition. However, unlike Gabriel, his brother's condition eventually became better and now he is fine. Unfortunately, Gabriel can't say the same. Dr Ebonie decided to have a look at his foot to understand how it looked. She was surprised to see many blisters on his foot while also noticing that he had clubbed foot. She was quick to tell that he suffered from a condition called Pseudodactyly in which there were two separate toes joined together in a webbed toe.
Dr Ebonie further asked Gabriel if he had ever met a dermatologist. He denied having met any and she thought it would be good for him to meet one if they were to move forward with the surgery. Dr Ebonie wanted to make sure Gabriel was fine to undergo the surgery because of his rare skin condition. She feared his skin would not heal if they were to go on. To make sure they were fully prepared, Dr Ebonie suggested Gabriel takes all the proper measures and tests before they go on with the procedure. Gabriel agreed and they decided to meet again once the lockdown was over.
'My Feet Are Killing Me' airs on Thursdays at 10.30 pm ET on TLC.
