Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.

Steven Johnson's disease (SJS) is a disorder of the skin or mucous membrane (mucosa) that occurs as a result of the effect of certain drugs or infection.

Symptoms start with flu-like symptoms, namely fever, cough, sore throat, which in turn turn into blisters and peeling skin.

This disease can be dangerous, especially if the blisters occur in the airway, it can cause airway obstruction. In addition, dehydration and infection can occur due to the blisters and blisters that occur in this condition.

Medicines that can cause this complaint, such as pain relievers, antibiotics, uric acid lowering, etc., can vary from person to person. While the cause of this condition is because infection is more often experienced by children, for example, Esteine ​​Barr or Coxackie virus infection.

However, blisters and peeling skin complaints can also be found in the following skin conditions:

Pemphigus vulgaris: an immune disorder that attacks the skin itself (autoimmune) Pemphigus bullosa: this is also caused by autoimmune burns. Inflammation of the skin due to irritation (irritant contact dermatitis) Ichtyosis For this reason, you should first check with a dermatologist to determine the cause of your complaint. The doctor will perform a direct physical examination, and if necessary, perform supporting examinations such as blood tests or biopsy to determine the cause of your complaint.

Furthermore, the doctor will provide treatment according to the underlying condition.

For a suitable skin lotion, generally in conditions of blisters and peeling skin the doctor will provide a combination of antibiotic ointment and moisturizer, as well as wound care. But you should check with a dermatologist first.

Things you can do to prevent worsening:

Be careful when taking medications For people with SJS, clean the blisters as much as possible in the hospital to avoid the risk of infection Do not try to break the existing blisters Do not exfoliate manually, let the skin peel off naturally. Eat healthy foods, multiply fruits and vegetables to increase your immunity. Drink about 2 liters of water per day. That's my explanation. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon :)
