WHAT IS SJS?
Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) was diagnosed as a disorder in 1922 by Albert Mason Stevens and Frank Chambliss Johnson, American pediatricians; due to their findings they published a description of this Syndrome at the American journal of diseases of Children.
WHAT IS IT AND HOW THIS SYNDROME IS NOT WELL KNOWN?
roughly is a mild classification of Toxic epidermal necrolysis(TEN). In simple words, this is a disorder due to the severely reaction of the mucous membranes and skin toward medication or infection. This is completely dangerous and can cause death of the epidermis that is forced to separate from the dermis. Mostly is triggered by a reaction to antibiotics and sulfa drugs, a little percentage is caused by genetics. Is barely known due to the low percentage of incidence, around 2.6 to 6.1 cases per million people per year.
For this unlucky percentage, it starts with a severe cold and a skin rash. First mistake from Doctors is prescribe antibiotics and overlook the initial damage: Skin reaction and destruction of skin tissue, sort of a purplish rash with top layer of skin dying and shedding. The rest you can imagine.
People are not aware of this and this is why we are raising the awareness as it can happen to you or your children.
Thank you all for the support and help support the Orange Family.
