Doctors believe it was from trying on new shoes without socks.
UNITED KINGDOM — A 4-year-old girl is recovering after contracting sepsis from trying on new shoes without socks.
According to the Sun, Sienna Rasul became really sick the day after trying on a several new shoes with bare feet.
Doctors think the bacteria may have been in the shoes. Sepsis can develop if bacteria enters the body through an open wound.
According to the Mayo Clinic, sepsis occurs when chemicals released into the bloodstream to fight infection trigger an inflammatory response throughout the body.
Physicians believe Sienna may have had a cut or wound on her foot that let the bacteria in.
Little Sienna spent five days on an antibiotic drip in the hospital with her mom by her side.
Luckily she's out of the woods and has been allowed to go home, but is still being monitored.
