Steven Johnsons Syndrome Homeopathic Treatment

Stevens-Johnson Syndrome is a rare but serious disorder of the skin and mucous membranes characterized by inflammation of the mucous membrane leading to the red or purplish rash. Stevens-Johnson Syndrome is often an unwanted gift of conventional drugs. One of the major groups of drugs is pain killer medicines which are often bought over the counter such as Paracetamol, NSAD, etc.

Causes of Stevens-Johnson syndrome

The exact cause is not fully understood. However, it is considered that it is a specific type of allergic reaction to medications or infections. Medications:

  • Cox-2 inhibitors
  • Sulfonamides or penicillin for infections
  • Anticonvulsants


  • Herpes (simplex or zoster)
  • Influenza
  • HIV
  • Diphtheria
  • Typhoid
  • Hepatitis

Rare causes:

The physical stimulus is given by UV rays or radiation therapy.


Existing medical conditions that lower the immunity of the body for e.g. HIV or SLE increase the risk for this syndrome.


Carrying a gene called HLAB12 may make you susceptible to SJS.
