I agree herpes (simplex) should be accepted. Cold sores is colloquial I guess. Herpes simplex is the official name

The first one is too wide open. There are too many diseases that can be described that way.

I agree I tried many things, though alzheimer(s) and dementia would definately be amongst the first to come to mind. Neither of them worked for me. So also tried diabetes, heartattack, errr forget what else ( no pun intended..)

I did that too, but albino is what you are when you are affected albinism is the condition. Like an albino rabbit or a rabbit with albinism. The quiz is about the names for the diseases. (otherwise with the acne question, if the answer would be what someone with acne would be called, I am affraid people would try a lot of negative words as the answer...)

As an actual narcoleptic, it has nothing to do with "falling asleep at random times;" it is characterized by inability to regulate your sleep cycles and EDS. Also, Osteogenesis Imperfecta is actually brittle bone disease, not Osteoporosis. Most of these aren't diseases as well, i.e. Jaundice (a symptom), insomnia (symptom), Epilepsy (symptom) and many others are disorders, not diseases.

Some of these answers (jaundice, for example) are not diseases but symptoms of diseases. Jaundice (for example) can be caused by many different diseases and conditions.

When alzheimer wasnt accepted I tried other things, since the question is very broad and could refer to many things. I dont know about other countries but here it is written without the s. I think you could be lenient here. Anyway seeing the answer it looked very weird to me. But I see what it is now. The answer is not correct like this anyway. It is Alzheimer's so no the s is not included (do not know the correct english term). (eventhough typing it like on the answer sheet will be acceptable, since interpunction doesnt matter on jetpunk. It would be nice if the correct answers are shown)

long story, sorry. Short, I might not have written it correctly ( but believe it should perhaps be acceptable) but the answer sheet hasnt written it correctly either.
