What is Stevens-Johnson Syndrome?
In most cases, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome is a very serious allergic reaction
to drugs that affects your skin and mucous membranes. SJS can lead to
Toxic Epidural Necrolysis (TEN) another skin disorder characterized by
the blistering, discoloration, and exfoliation of the skin, shedding of
hair and nails, hives and burns over the body, and in some instances loss
of eyesight and damage to internal organs.
Flu like symptoms usually heralds the start of Stevens-Johnson syndrome.
Next a painful red or purplish rash can appear and spread--sometimes rapidly.
The rash blisters and may eventually cause your top layers of skin to
die and shed. Seek immediate medical attention if you have any question
about your condition. Stevens-Johnson syndrome is an emergency condition
requiring immediate medical attention and usually hospitalization.
Once your symptoms are under control, you will need to make sure you know
the underlying cause of this severe reaction. It is important to also
minimize any complications as some can be life threatening.
Recovery from SJS
Recovery from Stevens-Johnson syndrome can take weeks, months or even years.
The severity of your condition will dictate the requirements of your recovery
process. See our
