Here is a little background on SJS:
www.sjssupport.org
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.
