Mom pens warning, says jelly sandals caused toddler's blisters


A Texas mother has a warning for other parents after she says a pair of jelly sandals her 2-year-old toddler wore all day caused horrific blisters.

In a now-viral Facebook post, Felicia Hillman shared several graphic images that showed the blisters impacting her two-year-old toddler, Rosie. Hillman said her daughter wore the jelly sandals only one day before she arrived home from daycare with gruesome blisters on the pads of her toes. 

The mom said she purchased the pair of shoes at a Walmart store.

“After countless antibiotics and creams finally we have some relief,” she wrote. “My poor Rosie girl has been a trooper. From blisters to horrific skin peeling and bleeding…Thank God no infections have ever come in to play."

Rosie was taken to an emergency room at Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital in Houston and spent other nights in urgent care facilities. 

"We have to see a plastic surgeon to make sure she won’t need skin grafts to make up for the skin she lost," Hillman wrote.

Since Hillman sent out her warning, the post has been shared more than 260,000 times.

The good news, Rosie appears to be on the mend.

“She is healing slowly and we are going to see a specialist soon,” Hillman told Yahoo Lifestyle.
