We all know that squeezing your pimples is not a great idea – but who would have thought it could potentially be life-threatening

Katie Wright thought she was just popping an ordinary pimple when she ended up with a deadly skin infection that almost left her blind.

When Katie spotted a pimple on her forehead, she popped it without giving it any thought, but the pimple turned out to be a Staph infection, which had affected her deep cellular tissue.

Her entire face started swelling and just kept on getting bigger, she wrote her Go Fund Me Page.

"My face grew hot and swollen, then disfigured very quickly, with an oozing open wound that kept getting bigger.

"When I got to the emergency room, the doctors said I was at risk of losing my sight or my life to this infection that was spreading rapidly."
