Skilful photo editing or actual medical condition?

Asked by paulc (2911 points ) April 23rd, 2008

I did something thoughtless and searched for “creepy” on Google images. The second result I got was (SFW but if you’re grossed out easily its probably best to avoid it) this photo of two fingers which I found a bit disturbing. I’m pretty sure this isn’t real but I’m also never really sure of anything. What do you think?

It’s hard to tell if it is real or not, but I have seen diabetic ulcers that look very similar to that. I just don’t know how that person would get it on his fingertips, unless they are non healing burn wounds. It almost look like a gangrenous wound, but it’s a little too neat for that. My guess is that’s a phony.

Ok my co-worker got really involved in searching for the truth of this photo and as I thought its a fake but damn, creepy. Lamprey mouths on your fingers, who comes up with that? This is burnt into my mind now. Sorry for sharing.
