Allergic reactions can arise from many causes, one of which can arise due to the consumption of certain drugs. Allergic reactions can also range from mild to severe. There is also a rare, unpredictable allergic reaction called Steven Johnson Syndrome.
Steven Johnson syndrome (SSJ) can occur either due to drug allergies or certain infections. some drugs that can be at risk such as pain relievers, antibiotic drugs, radiation therapy, gout drugs, anti-inflammatory drugs and others. In addition there are other factors that are thought to have an effect on the occurrence of SSJ, namely:
Family history with SSJ
Weakened immune system
Certain viral infections
Have had SSJ before
And certain genetic factors such as the HLA-B1502 or HLA-B1508 Genes
Steven Johnson's syndrome is characterized by symptoms such as a rash on the clit, fluid-filled bumps, joint pain, swelling of the face, eyelids, lips and tongue, pain in the skin and peeling of the skin. This case needs to be treated immediately to the hospital for intensive care where supportive therapy is carried out to replace body fluids and nutrition, wound care and eye care to support the healing process. If not handled properly, it can cause internal organ damage, blood infection, permanent skin damage and eye tissue damage.
Consult your sister's condition to the doctor who is currently treating her and you can also ask for information about her current condition so you can ask for a second opinion from other specialists regarding treatments that can be done on your sister to help her healing process.
