It all began at Sienna Duffield’s second birthday party. Her mother, Savina French-Bell, let a family member kiss her on the face. Soon after, Duffield would break out into blisters that looked like “acid” had been poured on her face.
“It started to look like someone had thrown acid over her face, it spread from her mouth to her cheeks, and above her eyes,” French-Bell told Inside Edition. “People would give us horrible looks, children would stare and adults would make nasty comments.”
For the next eight months, doctors would tirelessly try to figure out what the cause of the bloody skin infection was. Little did they know that the key was in the simple kiss.
