A mother-of-three has ended up in hospital with pus-filled abscesses after attempting to self-inject filler she bought online. 

Kelly Milne, 26, from Hadleigh, Suffolk, ‘wanted to look nice and like people on Instagram’ but was instead left in agony when she suffered a bad reaction to the filler she bought. 

After buying the Princess Filler Lidocaine from Fillerworld Ms Milne, who has no cosmetic qualifications, injected it herself.

A few days later her face broke out in red lumps and she developed a large and painful abscess. 

She told the Sun: ‘I wanted to use it, but didn’t know the risk. I ended up getting a really bad reaction to the product.

‘I thought I’d be alright because I used a filler, not the same one, in my lips, a year ago.’

Ms Milne also suffered from vomiting, diarrhoea and flu-like symptoms.

She bought the filler for £42 because it was cheaper than getting it professionally injected but eventually ended up in A&E at Ipswich Hospital.

A dermatologist prescribed her antibiotics and told her she needed the lump of filler removed – which would cost £400 if done privately. 

Ms Milne is now speaking out to warn others of the dangers of buying filler online and self-administering it. 

She said: ‘I want to warn young girls – don’t do what I did. There’s no point in taking that risk.

‘They shouldn’t be selling it to just anyone. They shouldn’t have sold it to me.’ 

On its website there is a warning, saying: ‘We advise our products should only be administered by licensed healthcare practitioners after purchase.’   

MailOnline has contacted Fillerworld for comment.
