A young mother is in intensive care after having
a rare but serious reaction to a friend's
prescription antibiotics that caused her to
"burn" from the inside out.
Yassmeen Castanada, 19, wasn't feeling well on
Thanksgiving, so she took a pill that her friend
had left over from a previous illness. Soon,
Castanada's eyes, nose and throat began to
burn, and she was rushed to the emergency
room, her mother, Laura Corona, told ABC
Her body erupted in blisters over the next few
days, Corona said. She had to be sedated and
placed on a ventilator.
"Her face changed within four days," Corona
told ABC News. "I would wipe her face and all
the skin was just falling off."
Doctors diagnosed Castanada with Stevens-
Johnson syndrome , a rare but serious drug
reaction that can occur even when drugs are
taken as prescribed by a doctor, said Dr. Joshua
Zeichner, a dermatology professor at the Mount
Sinai Hospital in Manhattan who was not
involved in treating Castanada.
"You're not truly burned, but what happens is
you have compromised the skin barrier
function," Zeichner said.
