Ibuprofen caused allergic reaction

31st October 2012

Ibuprofen caused 11-year-old, Calvin Lock, to have a life-threatening allergic reaction.

He had to be put on a life-support machine after 65% of his skin came out in blisters and he had to be treated in a burns unit. His parents are now campaigning to raise knowledge of his condition, Stevens-Johnsons Syndrome. His mother Robin Moult said: 'The doctors are 100% sure that the  ibuprofen caused Calvin's reaction. We would never have known that he was going to be allergic. I have given it to my other children and they have been fine."
