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.
