According to a report on MyFox8.com, Epidermolysis Bullosa is a rare, genetic skin disorder in which even the slightest touch causes severe blistering on the skin.

The disorder is painful and can end up being fatal, but it’s the only life that Jonah Williams knows.

Jonah, a 3-year-old boy from Kernersville, was diagnosed with EB at birth.  While his fragile skin is not hurt by direct pressure, any type of lateral friction causes it to blister and peel.
