Who is Mary Ann Regacho? Mary Ann Regacho Bio/Wiki
After being ravaged by a mysterious disease that began as a pimple, a teenager’s face swelled up like a balloon’.
Mary Ann Regacho disclosed that popping a blackhead on the side of her nose last year at home in Nueva Ecija, the Philippines, resulted in painful swelling that blurred her vision as it spread over her face. At first, the stubborn pimple that refused to vanish after weeks was the product of hormonal problems, she thought.
She is 17 years old.
Strange Illness Full Details
The teenage mother gave birth last year to a baby boy and was no stranger to puberty and pregnancy can cause skin problems.
She’d finally had enough and squeezed the spot. The region became sore and started swelling only days later. She described the swelling as spreading “like a balloon inflating” over her face and how the lump reached the corners of her eyes and allegedly impaired her vision.
Viral Press claimed that speaking this week, she said the swelling had spread across the bridge of her nose to her cheeks and forehead. She 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.”
Albert Salles, her husband, works part-time at a neighbor’s dairy. The couple had been unable to afford to seek medical attention with the swelling without a steady salary, which now almost obscured Regacho’s face.
Regacho was able to get it tested at a hospital after almost a year of dealing with the debilitating swelling.
The small provincial hospital, however, did not have the right equipment to diagnose her mystery illness, so she was transferred to a larger facility.
Her husband has pleaded for help, unable to pay for medical bills.
Salles can be heard asking ‘kind people’ for donations in a video recorded by an aunt to send Regacho, who sits next to him in the video with her son, to the hospital.
