A 71 year old woman has been living with silver skin tone for the past 60 years. Her name is Rosemary Jacobs and this is her story.
Rosemary, who is from Vermont, US, was diagnosed with an extremely rare condition called argyria. Argyria turns the human skin blue-ish or gray-ish. However, Rosemary’s condition wasn’t discovered before it was too late. At the age of 11 she was prescribed some nasal drops after her mother took her to a doctor in order to treat her running nose. The prescribed drops contained colloidal silver, which interfered with the woman’s condition. Over the following years her skin started slowly changing color, but nobody noticed, because the process was happening too slowly. Nowadays Rosemary’s skin is silver instead of having the natural pink-ish shade. She has tried numerous treatments, but none have helped.
The unfortunate woman has never had a romantic relationship in her life. Furthermore, she has been finding herself in hurtful and embarrassing situations because of her silver skin. Before landing a job as a Spanish teacher, she has been rejected job positions countless times.
