Polytechnic student dies after alleged allergy to acne medication

A polytechnic student died after allegedly developing an allergic reaction to the acne medication he was taking. Mr Christopher Kok Fook Loon, 18, a Malaysian studying at Nanyang Polytechnic, died on Tuesday. It is believed that he developed Stevens-Johnson syndrome, a rare and serious skin reaction, after taking the acne medication, reported Shin Min Daily News on Wednesday. It is unclear where he got the medication from. His girlfriend, known only as Miss Lim, wrote on Facebook that Mr Kok started to feel ill last week and took medicine for fever.
