A frightened mum rushed her daughter to Mackay Base Hospital this week, after she noticed an odd shaped bruise or rash on her chin.

Medical experts at Mackay Base Hospital ED examined the child's chin and quickly diagnosed her with Ooshie-itis and Simba the Oosie was the culprit. 

Simba had been suctioned to her daughter’s chin, causing the suspicious looking mark.  

The bruise later disappeared and the little girl is expected to make a full recovery.  

ED nurses at the Hospital admitted the Woolies collectables have been responsible for a few nasty bruises recently.
