A toddler with a rare condition that makes his skin develop painful scales "like a fish" has been virtually cured - by cannabis oil.

Carter Padelford, two, was diagnosed with genetic disorder lamellar ichthyosis three days after he was born 'as red as a tomato' in November 2016.

The condition affects one in 100,000 people in the US and affects the formation of the outer layer of the skin, causing sufferers to develop dark, plate-like scales.
