Chickenpox isn’t usually considered to be that dangerous and everyone who gets it suffers through the same agony, but for one mother, her son’s sickness turned into a real nightmare.

It started when Hayley Lyons from Warrington, England brought her son Lewis to the doctor as he had an alarmingly high fever. The doctor recommended that the Mother give her son ibuprofen to relieve his pain and reduce the fever. She did exactly as the doctor said.

After Lewis had been given the ibuprofen, his condition became worse, and his Mom had to rush him to the hospital for a second time. This time, he was diagnosed with a serious infection.

Since one of her friends’ children also had chicken pox, Hayley felt that she wanted to warn other parents about the danger.

Here’s how she wrote on Facebook:

“Chickenpox is going round again can I please remind people NOT to give your children nurofen/ibuprofen.

Four different doctors from our local (out of hours) prescribed it for Lewis as we couldn’t get his temp down. This type of medicine is an anti inflammatory, it reacts with chicken pox making them go deeper into the skin tissue.

It was only wen we took Lewis to Alderhey because the doctors from our hospital kept sending him home saying it was ‘just chicken pox’ we found this out.””He ended up with septicaemia and was admitted straight to Alderhey as soon as we arrived there.

Only because we persevered and took Lewis to a children’s hospital off our own back was he ok.

This could have ended up so much worse if it wasn’t for those doctors at Alderhey and their advice, care and knowledge.

Only use CALPOL for their temps.

It does actually state on the nurofen website not to take this medicine with chickenpox. (We discovered this after it happened) But when our doctors prescribe it, who are we to question it?”

Thanks to this Mom being so observant, she realized that Lewis was seriously ill and is now okay.
