Since I was born with a rare, congential condition called erythropoietic porphyria, simply put I am extremely allergic to the sun, but also alongside the extremely painful epidermis affects of my condition, my teeth grew in dark due to my body depositing of porphyrins all throughout my body. I have always wanted to have a big, beautiful, sparkly white smile. But could never afford it, so I was told about this site... and I'll be honest, I hate the concept of asking for money; but, I also hate how I feel when strangers stare at me with disgust when I smile at them. So I am hoping that maybe if I have this open for long enough, my dream of finally completing my ideal version of myself will come true? Every cent means the world to me, and then some.

Thank you very much.

The porphyrin that accumulates in EPP patients is protoporphyrin IX, which does not cause discoloration to teeth or abdominal pain.
 The type of porphyria that leads to discolored teeth is Congenital Erythropoietic Protoporphyria. The porphyrias that lead to episodic abdominal pain attacks are the acute hepatic porphyrias. Q. I have EPP and I have a severe reaction on my hands and lips. Do I seek urgent care? Also, what can you even do when you burn your lips? A. The acute reactions to sunlight in EPP can be very severe and, unfortunately, there are not many effective options to treat the symptoms. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS such as ibup…
