JUST BEFORE YOU TAKE THAT DRUG.

Is it possible to look like this just by swallowing a drug?




The answer of course , is YES.

Unforunately, there are some things one doesn't know about one's health until one has a life changing experience . An experience one doesn't forget. An example is a drug reaction.

Recently managed a young girl whose only crime was to take a popular sulphur containing antimalarial tablet ( those that require you to take 3 tablets at once). She ended up looking like the above.

Could this condition be fatal?


The answer is YES, see this sad story.

Question : Name the above condition/ possible conditions and or common drugs that give such reactions.

  1. I'm betting Stevens-Johnson syndrome, a scary drug reaction for sure.

  2. Wow, that looks scary. Thankfully, I haven't had any reactions to medicine, though to be honest, I try to avoid taking any medications when possible.

    1. Thank you Michael, as good as drugs are, we do have to be careful and sure they are necessary before taking them.
