Two women claim they now suffer from bacterial infection after slimming injection
Sin Chew Daily reported that two women, who weighed 42kg and 47kg, respectively, claimed that they were now suffering from a bacterial infection after they went to a beautician for a slimming injection.
One of the women had gone for three injections, spending RM4,000 (S$1,700) on the product in November, while the other only received one shot.
"My skin is swollen and feels itchy. It's painful," said one of them at a press conference organised by Cheras MCA.
Both women, who are in their 20s, alleged that they had spent RM50,000 and RM30,000 each to treat the infection.
They also claimed that when they confronted the beautician about their condition, she told them that it was normal.
The women had since lodged a report at the Cheras police station.
Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai had promised a probe into the case.
