Mary Ann Regacho, 17, from the Philippines is suffering from the mysterious side effect and has become unrecognisable.
The girl had been suffering from a pimple on her nose which she thought was due to hormones, after giving birth when she was 16-years-old.
However, she became concerned as it lasted for several weeks.
After squeezing the spot, Mary began to suffer from pain after a few days.
It then started to spread across her face. She said it was “like a balloon inflating.”
The lump has now taken over her face and affects her vision as the swelling has reached the corner of her eyes, reports The Sun.
The mum-of-one has been trying to cure herself with herbal medication, however, nothing has worked.
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.”
Mary had been unable to afford treatment as her husband, Albert Sales, works part-time in a neighbour’s farm without a steady income.
After a year she went to the hospital to have it checked, however she was unable to pay medical bills.
Her husband has appealed to good Samaritans to raise funds.
In a video statement released by Albert, he said: ”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.”
