An 11-year-old boy suffered 65 per cent burns to his body after suffering a horrific allergic reaction to the painkiller ibuprofen.
Calvin Lock reacted so severely to the over-the-counter medicine that he was put on a life support machine for three days and rushed to a specialist burns hospital.
The youngster, from Littleport, Cambridgeshire, is now making a good recovery after his terrifying brush with death.
Calvin’s ordeal began on September 26 when he was given the painkiller( Ibuprofen) to tackle a viral infection. The schoolboy woke up the next morning with a rash on his face and a slight swelling to his ear.
