A little girl is being tortured by the psoriasis skin condition that leaves her skin covered in yellow flaky scales.
Ranee Boonrung, 9, has suffered from psoriasis for two years, excluding her from the typical child's life of friends and fun someone her age should be enjoying.
The illness affects all of her body causing unbearable irritation.
Ranee, from Yala province in the south of Thailand, first received treatment at Trang's Institute of Dermatology but it was ineffective.
A similar result followed treatment at the hospital in nearby Had Yai.
Desperate for relief for their daughter their parents then tried a two-month treatment programme at Had Yai Univesity but, again, without much success.
But, after returning disappointed to their home town of Yala, her mother said: "We've now heard of a doctor in Buriram who might be able to help the sickness progressing - but the treatment will take three months."
She continued: "We are poor and the cost of travel and treatment is very expensive so we're hoping an appeal on the internet might help our daughter get better".
