A high school student continued to have allergic reactions to sulphur used in her chemistry class, despite having a reactive asthmatic reaction to the chemical. She would develop hives and had breathing difficulty when exposed to sulphur compounds. Her parents are now suing the school as the teachers failed to accept her possibly fatal diagnosis, which has resulted in "brittle asthma" from repeated exposure in chemistry class. For a young girl who used to be active and dance, now she carries adrenaline in a syringe and a bronchodilator inhaler, and has home oxygen.
