My first thought was...

Does she have teenagers?

The headline was " Woman Ages 50 Years in Just a Few Days"

But no.  Apparently the 26 year-old woman was having problems with allergies and took medication to ease her symptoms for a month.
According to the article,
"Many doctors believe that Phuong has lipodystrophy, which is a rare condition that causes a layer of fatty tissue beneath the surface of the skin to disintegrate while the skin itself continues to grow at an accelerated pace."
This could have happened from the medication and specialists are now studying her and her condition to work on restoring her appearance.

I hope they are able to help her AND I hope they can use their findings to help those of us that have "middle age allergies!"
