Comedian Ate Gay burst into tears when he looked back on his battle with a rare skin disease.

In a photo, he can be seen with an oxygen tube inserted into one of his nostrils, and his lip turned black from the wound.
He also has pictures of his body full of rashes.
Ate Gay revealed that it was due to his rare and serious skin condition called toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN).
According to healthline.com, TEN is an “adverse reaction to medication like anticonvulsants or antibiotics.”
Its main symptoms are said to be severe peeling and soreness.
Ate Gay said that before he experienced this, he had been on treatment for tuberculosis or TB for six months.
But he clarified, he did not have COVID-19.
Ate Gay talked about her illness in Boobay’s YouTube video posted on June 6, 2021.
Ate Gay believes that stress has something to do with her illness.
When he was not sick and before the pandemic hit, he never ran out of work every night as a performer in comedy bars.
When asked what he had learned from the experience, he couldn’t help but sigh.
He said: “Hanggang tayo’y nabubuhay, bawat araw mahalaga.”
