SJS is characterized by an extensive painful rash following several days of flu-like symptoms. The rash will then blister and the affected skin will begin to shed. Typically, SJS occurs as an allergic reaction to a medication or is caused by an infection. Nonsteroidal inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), penicillins, sulfonamides, and anticonvulsants are some types of medications that may lead to SJS in susceptible persons. Influenza, herpes simplex, and herpes zoster cause viral infections that may trigger SJS. Complications may be life- threatening, including meningitis and serious infection. Meningitis is an infection of the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Infection from bacteria entering the blood can lead to shock and organ failure. Hospitalization is required for treatment of this condition. Pain medications are typically given to alleviate associated discomfort. Antibiotics may be given to treat infections. Glucocorticoids, such as prednisone, methylprednisolone, and dexamethasone,, may be used to reduce inflammation. Severe cases of SJS may require immunoglobulin intravenous (IGIV), which works to stop the i::ogression of the condition.
