Stevens-Johnson syndrome treatment

Stevens-Johnson SyndromeStevens-Johnson syndrome (Erythema Multiforme major) is a serious disorder affecting the skin and mucous membranes related to a hypersensitivity reaction that usually occurs in response to medications and sometimes infection.

This syndrome usually begins with flu-like symptoms, followed by a painful red or purplish rash that spreads and blisters, eventually causing the top layer of skin to die and shed (slough).

Treatment: This is a medical emergency that always requires hospitalization in a hospital that specializes in the treatment of burns. Surgical intervention may be necessary.
