“I can’t see anything when it covers the pupil of eye. It burns”. She further tells
The Doctors define the term as Haemolacria In which the person bleeds tears. It is very rare.
The causes of Haemolacria are clotting issues, injuries or tears gland malfunction. But this little girl is cleared all the tests.
This mysterious blood also comes from her ears, nose, gums, nails, tongue and scalp.
Marnie is now 17 and she has no friends as she can’t go out due to her medical conditions.
She further explained why.
“We had to call an ambulance again when I was in some shop suddenly my eyes and ears were bleeding”.
