Dying for beauty
In today's Raleigh News & Observer: a N.C. State student slathered herself with a popular lidocaine and tetracaine cream, got in her car, had seizures, fell into a coma, and died on her way to Premier Body of Raleigh for a laser hair removal appointment. The cream, called 10/10 Laser Gel Plus, is used in many spas in the area. Because it is compounded by pharmacists, it requires no FDA approval.
