Twenty kids sprout hair all over their bodies after bungling docs gave them HAIR RESTORER for upset stomach in Spain

TWENTY kids have sprouted hair all over their bodies after bungling doctors gave them hair restorer for their upset stomachs.

Shocking pictures show the hair-covered skin of kids in Torrelavega, Spain.



Officials admitted that some kids in the region were mistakenly given minoxidil, a medication for hair growth, instead of omeprazole to treat gastric reflux.

Some of those affected are still growing werewolf-like hair more than two years later.

Furious parents went public with their complaints, and it was later confirmed that 20 kids were affected.

The families made a complaint to the Ministry of Health in July last year.

They have filed civil and criminal complaints against a laboratory and several companies for importing and distributing the drug for manufacturing, distributing and selling.

Two pharmacies in Cantabria were later cleared by a judge.

The affected kids who had taken minoxidil developed hypertrichosis, which causes excess hair to grow on the body.

The families of some children have complained that despite treatment, the hair keeps growing and they demand compensation.
