Despite having been teased her entire life by other children, Supatra Sasuphan is delighted to have received the title of 'World's Hairiest Girl.' The student from Thailand suffers from Hypertrichosis, a medical condition that causes excessive growth of hair in areas where hair does not normally grow.
For Supatra case, she has thick hair
growing over her face, ears, arms, legs and back. The hair has gotten increasingly
thicker over the years, so her mother has to cut it back regularly
for her. Even laser treatments
have failed to stop the hair growth.
Ever since the 11-year-old has been given the Guinness World Record title, she says it has helped her become extremely popular at school.
