It’s an awful sight: two-year-old, Jasper Allen, from Cambridgeshire, UK, is completely covered in red sores. The mother, Sarah, was refused an appointment at her local GP surgery because a receptionist did not think the condition was severe enough to warrant a visit. The pictures that Sarah has taken tell a completely different story.
The itching sores became severely infected and two days after being turned away by the doctor’s surgery, Sarah decides to take Jasper to the emergency room at the hospital because her son’s condition was worsening. At hospital, Sarah was told her son had the ‘worst case of chickenpox ever seen’. It was so bad that the doctors considered contacting medical journals as they had never seen such an extreme case.
