The bad thing that happens to Nezuko after she turned into a demon was she lost her speaking skills. She was unable to express herself in words in someone asks any question. She was given a bamboo muzzle which she only use to give answer to Tanjiro. Another reason muzzle was attached to her mouth was to help her control her desire for human blood and flesh.

In this mode, Nezuko starts craving for Human blood and flesh, at this stage, it becomes harder for her to control herself and extremely dangerous to keep her around people. The only person who can control her at this stage is her sister Tanjiro. She starts singing lullaby which was sing by her mother when they both were kids.
