It’s bizarre how you can be catfished by your own body, seriously. No need to wait on someone on the internet to catfish you because your body will always do it first. What does this mean? Well simply put, the body has a funny way of showing you that something might be wrong with it, the catfishing part comes in because you may think it’s one thing, but it ends up being something totally different. For example, a rash. If there is anything that will ever catfish you at least once in this lifetime, it’s going to be a rash. Sometimes you can never tell from first glance what that rash might actually be, especially on your scalp. It could be eczema, it could be dandruff, it could be psoriasis, or even a heat rash.
