A little girl was left with a hideous facial infection after her parents chose to treat her symptoms with black magic instead of taking her to the hospital.

It wasn’t until little Tania, from a tribal hamlet in Dantewada, India, got worse and was covered in puss-filled blisters that her parents took her to the hospital. Doctors spent weeks treating the bacteria before she finally got better.

Dr. Rajesh Dhruv said: “The infection started in the face with small foci. Due to lack of treatment, poverty, social taboos within the tribal community and negligence by the parents, the condition of the child got worse in the last two months.

“First, they took the child to shamans for a black magic treatment, but when the infection worsened, the parents brought Tania to our hospital two weeks ago. With limited resources at our disposal, I treated the child and within days of treatment she showed marked improvement, and now her face is back to normal. Most probably the bacteria that infected Tania were staphylococcus aureaus or streptococcus pyogenes.”

    This is so sad, I want to be angry with the parents but poverty doesn’t make it easy to afford medical treatment …. I’m glad the baby is getting better

    Omg this is absolutely horrible. Any small sight of anything wrong with my baby I’m calling her doctor and asking questions. How can you let your child go around like that with thinking home remedies would take care of it?
