How To Treat Steven Johnson Syndrome?

Hello Riki, thanks for asking.
Steven Johnson Syndrome is a disease that is rarely found. This condition attacks the skin and mucosa (mucous membrane). The skin and mucosa have tissue death so it peels off. Exfoliation of the skin and mucosa causes loss of body fluids and protein. A person becomes dehydrated and lacks protein. There is a risk of kidney damage, liver and overall infection (sepsis). This causes this syndrome can be fatal. Therefore, this syndrome is not a condition that you can treat yourself. If someone is suspected of having Steven Johnson's syndrome, he should be referred to a hospital that has intensive room facilities.
The causes are varied, possibly it can be caused by certain drugs or certain types of infections. Someone who has a history of drug allergy can have a higher risk of developing this syndrome. However, when this syndrome arises is unpredictable. If you find or experience a severe allergic reaction, immediately go to the nearest hospital emergency room. Do not take medicine without doctor's advice.
Hopefully this brief explanation can help you. Regards.
