Mom Sends Out Warning To Parents Whose Children Get Chickenpox

Hayley Lyons is sharing terrifying photos of her son’s septicaemia to warn parents about the potential dangers of giving ibuprofen to children with chickenpox.

Lyons’ Facebook post of her son’s ailment has been shared almost 350,000 times, according to Daily Mail.

Though several doctors prescribed children’s ibuprofen for her son Lewis’ chickenpox, her son ended up being hospitalized with septicaemia. While at Alder Hey Children's Hospital, she was told how ibuprofen should never be prescribed because 'it reacts with chicken pox making them go deeper into the skin tissue,’ Daily Mail reports.

“Only because we persevered and took Lewis to a children's hospital off our own back was he ok,” Lyons wrote. “'This could have ended up so much worse if it wasn't for those doctors at Alder Hey and their advice, care and knowledge.”

National Health Service says that there is no actual cure for chickenpox and it usually clears up on its own. You can give your child a mild painkiller like paracetamol if they are in pain or have a fever, but never give your child aspirin if they have or are suspected to have chickenpox, because they can develop Reye’s syndrome, which can cause brain or liver damage. Also, talk to your doctor and pharmacist before administering medicine to your child.
