We are also asking that if you or someone you know has had SJS please contact us because we would like that person to come out to this event.
Here is a little background on SJS:
Stevens Johnson Syndrome or Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis is a severe allergic drug reaction.
- Painful Blistering of the skin and mucous membrane involvement.
– In many cases it is preceded by flu like symptoms and high fever.
– As it evolves the skin literally sloughs off. – Ocular involvement includes severe conjunctivis, iritis, palpebral edema, conjunctival and corneal blisters and erosions, and corneal perforation.
Almost ANY DRUG can cause SJS/TEN, including over the counter drugs. SJS & TEN do not discriminate against anyone! Everyone should be aware of allergic drug reactions.
We will have live music by Kevin Naquin DJ Services by Jeff Entertainment Food/Beverages: Hamburgers, soft drinks, and water.
