Today, my thirteen-year-old daughter tried to scratch the freckles off of her face. We ended up going to the hospital. FML

Has your daughter ever taken an IQ test? just curious

She kept scratching even though it hurt that bad and did enough damage to get taken to the hospital? She needs help.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but don't people on meth do something similar to this?

I would lose all faith in humanity if this 13 year old girl was on meth.

Or bath salts? Or is that just the face of another person?

Bath salts supposedly make you eat other people.

I hope 13 is too young for these drugs or for anyone with half a brain!

I've seen many people on bath salts from working at the hospital. They usually want to kill themselves or others because they become crazy paranoid. I even saw one guy try to strangle his own mom.

Well there is a disease called body dismorphic disorder.. (BDD for short I think(: ) But yeah, that's sort or like anorexia where you see yourself differently. I doubt your daughter has it but some people with BDD have chopped off limbs because they think it shouldn't be there. She could have thought there was something wrongs with her face. Their was a lady who kept on plucking and waxing her eyebrow which damaged them so much they stopped growing back.... Haha I'm sure your daughter is fine. At least the doctors can diagnose her properly, if she actually has a disease XD .or if she's just not the .. Brightest of people. :3 to put it nicely.

19 - your an idiot 17 - its was confirmed he was on weed not bath salts

11) you are correct, it's called meth mites and people have killed themselves from trying to "remove" the imaginary bugs from under their skin.

57- it's spelled you're not your. Unless it was laced, weed would not make you eat someone else's face. so don't point fingers when you're also a dumbfuck.

95 - You're only wrong about the "virus" thing. A bunch of sites across the Internet were trying to hype the idea that people were being infected by a virus that made you a zombie. Those people were absolutely wrong, because they were saying certain cases happened in days when in actuality they were years apart. Essentially they were all mislead bull shit reports just trying to scare people. Aside by that, absolutely correct on the lab results. The man (Eugene) was found with only marijuana in his system, and they deemed him either with a psychological disorder, or a drug that the labs were unable to pick up. Either way, marijuana did not help him at all.

57- You're* How much do we have to stress this!!!

What has her IQ have any thing to do with it? Or all the meth comments! Your all a bunch of idiots! The poor kid obviously hates herself and is that self conscious / stressed that she just wanted them to go away! Its a clear cry for help with her low confidence! FYL to all who commented in this way!

that's... disturbing... but why wouldn't she want them anyway? freckles are beautiful

Couldn't she have just used foundation to cover them up?

You're right, she might need help... But remember that she's 13. OP should find out if she's bullied. It's entirely possible that they mess with her over having lots of freckles & in a desperate move, she tried to get rid of them. It's very disturbing, but many young teenagers take drastic measures to be accepted or just not made fun of.

This should have more thumbs up than "she's not very bright" or "she's on drugs".

Back when my sister was talking about how my legs were kinda hairy it made me get to the point where I shaved them because I thought it was how it should look. Even though I regret it I, still went through the actions of trying to change my appearance, which could be the reason why she kept on scratching; probably teased by a couple of friends.

or she was just upset that someone was making fun of her for having freckles.. its the same thing that happens when some teens cut, they get so upset they dont realize what theyre doing. true story.

She just thought she could obtain a soul if she took things into her own hands (ginger joke)

I'm wondering how badly she messed her face up D:

Bad enough people are doing this on bath salts, now they're doing this when they're not high?! D:

She had to know they weren't coming off any time soon...

Well I hope she didn't permanently scar her face and make it worse. As if it were bad to begin with; freckles are cute :3 you should try to teach her that :)

Probably multiple scars? I would hope she tried just one, but then again, maybe when one didn't work she went on to others...

Either she hates her freckles with a passion, or she just has the pain threshold of a gladiator.

I find it difficult to imagine how anyone could hate freckles!

When I was younger, I hated my freckles. I thought they were really ugly... They made my skin look blotchy and unpleasant. I think they're cute now, but they've pretty much faded away by this point.

Kids can be cruel , sadly and most of the time it's never reported because the child is afraid of repercussion . Hope she realizes she a beautiful individual.

She must have literally scratched her face off o.o

I highly doubt she "literally" scratched her face off. She would be dead I'm sure.

My face was hurting after I read this. //shudders

But freckles are adorable! D: I really hope she is okay.

If she hated her freckles to the point of harming herself you should have given her makeup or something so she wouldn't have hurt herself. I'm sure she is very pretty (I love freckles) but if shes going to harm herself, let her cover them up

Whilst make up may be a good coping mechanism to prevent injury for now, she reall needs to learn to be happy with herself. She can't, and shouldn't have to, hide all her life.

I don't think make up for a 13-year-old is a good option. That could develop into something a lot worse and make her more superficial and focused on looks.

Well obviously her looks bother her enough now that she has taken these drastic measures. She was probably bullied about it. I was bullied about my very thick eyebrows; one day I got rid of them completely. Bullying just pushes people over the edge sometime. Make-up in this case would help her cope, perhaps, while she works on building up confidence (or at least on getting away from the horrible people that did this to her.
