The Food and Drug Administration is now requiring a warning on bottles of the popular pain reliever acetaminophen.

The Administration says the drug may cause serious skin reactions in some people.

The pain reliever is found in numerous prescription and over-the-counter products designed to treat pain and reduce fever.

Other drugs designed to treat fever and pain, such as ibuprofen, also carry the risk of these skin reactions, but they already carry a warning on their labels.
