Bad medicine: antibiotic prescription drug causes woman's skin to fall off

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

If you're looking for a dramatic example of the dangers of prescription drugs and yet another case of bad medicine, look no further than this story. If it can be believed, a woman's allergic reaction to a common antibiotic caused her skin to start sloughing off. It should come as no surprise that this condition is being reported as 100% fatal, yet this woman miraculously survived.

I don't mean to make light of the seriousness of such a situation, but I'm not sure I believe this story is actually true. I'm skeptical that an antibiotic could cause such dramatic and grotesque side effects, since most prescription drugs kill their patients slowly, through less obvious effects. But even if it's true, it certainly isn't widespread.
