What is Stevens Johnson Syndrome?


Our immune system stands guard
to protect us against infections and
viruses. It helps fight off any invaders that would make us sick
  When a person has Stevens Johnson Syndrome their immune system for some reason makes a mistake and turns on itself  causing blisters that leave them burned. Our immune system is unable to stop this reaction
SJS patients feel very sick and they stay in the hospital until they are well enough to go back home.  They are wrapped in bandages and given special formula in a feeding tube. Some times they need help breathing so they have to use a machine to help them breath better.
