Girl "Grows Back Face" After Pain Relief Pill Made It Turn Black And Fall Off

19-year old Eva Uhlin has regrown her face, chest, arms, back and stomach. A rare reaction to a couple pills of pain reliever acetaminophen, the main ingredient in Tylenol, caused her to develop Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis, and large parts of her skin turned black and fell off.

Eva took the pills to treat a fever symptoms, and the drug’s interaction with the virus producing the fever caused her to develop the horrifying condition. Also known as Lyell’s syndrome, it’s frequently induced by adverse reaction to medication, and kills 40% of those it afflicts
