Mother raises awareness of rare skin condition

The mother of a baby from Glynneath has been forced to hand out leaflets about her son's rare skin condition, after strangers thought he'd been burned.

18-month-old Geraint suffers from an incurable skin problem which has left his body covered in blisters.

His mum Angharad is trying to raise awareness of the condition in the hope that there will one day be a cure, as Alexandra Lodge reports.
