‘Bubble Skin Man’ Chandra Wisnu Seeks A Cure For Condition Before It Hits His Kids, TLC Documentary Show
When Chandra Wisnu married his wife Nanik 33 years ago, he felt like he had it all. He was young, good looking, well-educated and born into into a well-to-do family.
After the wedding, he wasn’t so lucky.
Even before the big day, the 57-year-old Indonesian started noticing strange small bumps on his back that that looked like tiny bubbles.
Wisnu became known as the “Bubble Man” around his village, even though he kept himself locked inside his house so no one could see him and his pink tumors.
And when he did go out, he wore three jackets, a balaclava and sunglasses so he wouldn’t frighten children.
“People are afraid, they are frightened of my horrible face and worried they might catch the disease,” he told News.com.au. “So instead I avoid people, I rarely go out except to pick up my daughter from school. And when I do I cover my head and my face because I don’t want my daughter’s friends to bully her for having ‘the dad with the horrible face’.”
