Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS) is a rare but life-threatening disorder that affects the skin, mucous membrane, genitals and eyes.
Often, it begins with flu-like symptoms, followed by a painful red or purplish rash that spreads and blisters. Then the top layer of the affected skin dies, sheds and then heals.
Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a medical emergency that usually requires hospitalization.
Treatment focuses on eliminating the underlying cause, controlling symptoms and minimizing complications as your skin regrows.
Recovery after Stevens-Johnson syndrome can take weeks to months, depending on the severity of your condition.
If it caused by a medication, you’ll need to permanently avoid that drug and others closely related to it.

Unexplained widespread skin pain
A red or purple skin rash that spreads
