A dermatologist later diagnosed Shaw, who was a health student at the time, with Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) – a rare disorder that begins with flu-like symptoms.
‘They put me into a medically-induced coma, because they knew it was going to be really painful,’ she said on her blog which she started after her ordeal.
