A viral Facebook post, which says “This Woman Thought it was a Normal Allergy Under Her Skin,” is fake.
The bogus post includes an image of a person getting something removed from his or her skin.
When users click on the post, they are taken to a site that asks to give it access to the user’s Facebook account.
