I've always liked Bob Rogers' description of Facebook as "an educational cul-de-sac." So when horrific descriptions of what happens when you give a child with chickenpox a dose of ibuprofen emerged on the site they surely couldn't be true, could they? Let Dr Alasdair Munro guide you through fact and fiction and hopefully provide a little bit of evidence along the way.
