The Baby Thought It Was Poison Oak! It Was Something Worse


Life can be very brutal and at times. It throws to us some very challenging situations which, sometimes happen to be beyond our capability to cope with it. Health problem is one such situation which I am talking about. Mandy Suzanne Smith picks up her son Zachary from school early as he was complaining that he had gotten poison oak on his foot and his eyes were extremely itchy.

The next day it got even worse, he had a rash on his entire body and had a fever.

His eyes were bloodshot and his lips were cracking. Finally, the doctors found out that Zachary had SJS Stevens-Johnson Syndrome but not poison oak. This is when the body burns from the inside out and what caused it was a medication called lamotrigine he was taking for migraines.
