WEBDESK: Danny Ramos Gomez, a resident of Mexico has been dubbed the ‘wolfman’. The reason is an abnormal growth of hair all over his face.
Gomez has a condition called hypertrichosis, which causes his body to produce an abnormal amount of hair.
Despite this abnormality he has managed to date two girls who love him for who he is.
He has a girlfriend named Hilda and a daughter from a previous relationship.
His ex-girlfriend Lucy who stayed with him for six years loved his eyes and she found his hair ‘quite sexy’.
“It was his personality that won him over. He’s very noble. He’s very affectionate. He’s a very good person”, she added.
Gomez knows that people insult him for how he looks but he doesn’t take it to heart. Some people think he is an alien from outer space.
“I don’t take it seriously. I know who I am inside,” he said. “I am a normal guy. I play football, I play video games. I go to the movies. I am the same as everybody, except what people see on my face, that’s all.”
Dr. Luis Figuera, geneticist said, “This kind of hypertrichosis as shown in this family is very rare,’. As far as the experts know, there are two or three families in the world with it.
Gomez can shave, but he refuses to change how he looks. “I don’t think I will ever change it.”
Gomez is happy with his appearance. He is spending a normal life. He still works in the circus– performing daredevil feats on the trapeze and trampoline.
