Kris Aquino gets allergic reaction after taking wrong meds, warns fans
Kris Aquino is warning fans of the dangers of taking wrong medication after she suffered from an allergic reaction for committing the said mistake.
The Queen of All Media took the wrong pain reliever last Sunday, May 24, which resulted in swollen eyes that she said made her look like “nakipag sparring kay ([she] sparred with) Ronda Rousey,” an American professional wrestler.
“Last Sunday, I drank the wrong pain reliever for my migraine – the result? Super bad allergic reaction & 5 days before swelling finally subsided,” Aquino said on Instagram yesterday, May 26.
“INGAT (Take care) please – let what happened to me be the warning,” the actress stressed.
Aquino’s post came with two photos of the allergic reaction: the first one showed a small bump under one eye while the second one showed almost her whole face red from swelling.
Aquino has previously suffered from an anaphylactic reaction – a widespread and often very serious allergic reaction – also in 2018 during a shoot in Indonesia.
Other than suffering from taking the wrong medication, however, Aquino also shared that her left hand got injured yesterday after she tried to adjust her electric fan.
“Last picture is my left hand because this afternoon [I] tried to be independent; [I] was adjusting the electric fan stand to lower it, malay ko ba na pwedeng biglang bumagsak na lang yung buong fan & naipit na ko – OUCH,” she said.
(I was adjusting the electric fan stand to lower it, I did not know that the whole thing could suddenly fall and hit me.)
“Since hindi talaga pwede sa pain relievers [and anti-inflammatory meds], [I’m] using helichrysum essential oil… nurse Mona made a splint because ang hirap to straighten my hand, may mga naipit na ugat kaya up to my elbow yung kirot,” the actress added.
(Since I cannot really take pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications, I’m using helichrysum essential oil. Nurse Mona made a splint because it is hard for me to straighten my hand, a vein got squeezed, which is why the pain reaches up to my elbow.)
The actress also apologized for not being able to hold a Facebook Live session for her fans due to the health problems but promised that she will try to do one as soon as possible. JB
