Mother allergic to her own baby

UK Joanne Mackie has found that she is allergic to her own baby. She found this out because the morning after the birth of James Mackie, she had huge, painful blisters covering her skin.

As it turns out, the rash was so painful "it kept her from acting on 'natural instinct'", meaning that she couldn't even hold her son. Her husband and James's father, Robert Mackie, 37, subsequently took care of James.

Joanne decided to take a trip to the doctor. The doctors were baffled. They had never seen anything like it. But after many tests they came to a conclusion: pemphigoid gestitionis, a rare skin disorder that affects pregnant mothers and newborns.

Who would have thought that a mother could be allergic to her own child? Even though it is rare, obviously it has happened often enough for someone to give it a name.
