GIRL GROWS BACK FACE AFTER ONE IN MILLION ALLERGIC REACTION

A teenage girl has grown back her entire face after being struck down by a rare skin disease. Leanne Howes, 17, was given just 10 percent chance of survival after suffering from a one in a million allergic reaction to an off the shelf antacid drug that left her unrecognisable. The potentially fatal condition - Stevens-Johnson syndrome - gripped her entire body, causing her skin to burn up, scab over and fall off in chunks. Trainee hairdresser, Leanne, from Hoveton in Norwich, developed the syndrome after taking a 150mg dose of Zantac Ranitidine prescribed by her doctor to treat Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The illness left the pretty brunette lying in a hospital bed for weeks while it ran its devastating course
