This Woman’s Horror Story Will Remind You To Leave Your Blemishes Alone.

Things Were Different This Time

Blemishes like blackheads and whiteheads are usually easier to pop, but when it turns into a cyst, it puts a lot of pressure on your skin and can be hard to deal with. Sometimes they're so painful that it doesn't matter what they look like, you just want the pain to stop. Katie was finally able to pop the pimple, but unlike every other time she did it, Katie's problems weren't gone, yet.

Not Taking Any Chances

As soon as Katie popped the pimple, her whole face began to swell. The pimple only got bigger and the pain grew more intense. We all know that popping pimples doesn't feel good, but Katie knew that something was definitely wrong. Katie didn't want to wait to see what was going to happen, so she went to the emergency room. Lucky for her, she made the right decision. If she hadn't gone to the hospital, things could've been way worse.

Not Just A Pimple

The doctors told Katie that it wasn't a normal pimple that she had. It was a very serious case of cellulitis, a form of staph infection that can lead to some pretty devastating health conditions. Katie said it felt like her skin was literally going to explode. It's scary to think about a pimple actually being a dangerous infection, but what was worse than that was what the infection could've actually done to Katie.

The Infection Had Horrifying Possibilities

Katie had said that the infection had no "head" and it was spreading all over. Because the infection was on her face, the doctors told Katie that there was a possibility that the infection could spread to her eyes or her brain, causing her to go blind or have brain damage. If an infection got into her bloodstream it could have some life-ending results. After her four-day stay in the hospital, Katie still had no idea where she had gotten the infection from.

It Was Something She Did Every Day

What happened to Katie is a random event that could happen to anyone. Katie did something every single day that caused the infection. Since she had no idea what could've caused it, she was shocked when she heard what the doctors had to say. Her medical team told her that the infection could've come from one of her makeup brushes, which can carry dangerous levels of bacteria. Katie said she was good about cleaning her brushes, but there was one thing she forgot about.
