17 year-old girl blinded by mystery illness sparked from squeezing 'harmless' nose spot

A teenager has been blinded by a mystery illness sparked from squeezing a seemingly harmless nose spot.

Mary Ann Regacho, 17, suffered severe facial swelling after simply popping a pimple on her nose last year.

The youngster originally thought the growth was a simple spot caused by hormones after she gave birth to a baby boy at age 16.

But, when she squeezed the spot, Mary said it grew painful days later before it started spreading across her face.

The teenager, from Nueva Ecija, the Philippines, said it "like a balloon inflating".

Now, the growth has mostly engulfed her face and has started to lead to blindless as the sever swelling reaches her eyes.

Mary said: "I thought it was only a common pimple, but it hurt so much I could not sleep at night. I tried everything to cure it but nothing worked.

"Now, I feel like my face will never be the same again."

Her husband, Albert Sales, who works in a neighbour’s farm without a steady income, was reportedly unable afford treatment or even medicine to help his wife.

After a year of suffering, Mary went to the hospital to have it checked out.

Mary was transferred to a bigger hospital where the family were again left unable to pay for medical bills.

Worried husband Albert  has now appealed to good Samaritans for help, appearing in a video saying: "I want to ask kind people for donations so we can finally send my wife to a hospital.

"We only earn enough for ourselves and our one-year-old baby so I can't afford her medical bills."
