Below Deck Med Spoilers – Kyle Viljoen Got Very Ill
It’s probably a good thing that Kyle was with Zachary when he fell so terribly ill. The news arrived on his social media and it came with a “Trigger Warning.” Actually, others who experienced the same emergency confirmed that it was very painful, and needed medical treatment. Now, they gather online to send in their love and hopes for a fast recovery for their favorite Bravo star. In fact, it seems that his painful symptoms are rare but not unknown.
Instagram brought a very long and detailed explanation about the Below Deck star. Accompanying it was a photo of Kykle looking very unwell, Lying in a hospital bed, he was festooned with pipes and plenty of machines did their thing in the background. Of course, everyone knows that Kykle has a bouncy personality, so seeing him looking so unwell really shocked his fans.
The very long caption detailed a lot of pain and a terrifying illness. In a nutshell, Kyle had a bad reaction to “new medication.” However, he was about to “face…the most painful and traumatic bodily experience of [his] life.” The unwell feeling became really bad, and he started the week with “throat pain like none other.” Next, it spread all over his mouth, and other parts of his body. A visit to a clinic revealed a diagnosis of “hand-foot-mouth disease.”
The symptoms of blistering and pain got worse for the Below Deck star. So, Zachary took him to the ER. There, medical professionals rushed him through tests and he discovered he had “Stevens-Johnson Syndrome.” The “serious disorder of the skin and mucous membranes” can cause a “painful rash that spreads with bursting and oozing blisters. Then the top layer of affected skin dies and sheds.” So in fact, he was ill from a bad reaction to the medication and not the disease initially diagnosed.
