2. It’s a Common Health Condition
While you might never have heard of Stevens-Johnson syndrome before reading about it in this article, it’s a more common health condition than you might have thought before, and it can affect as much as an estimated 2 million people every year. Statistics say that the condition might even affect more than the reported number, and it could be on the rise as more cases of SJS are properly diagnosed and accordingly reported.
With as much as 2 million cases happening every year, you should take note if you are at an increased risk of developing SJS due to any medication that you might have been prescribed, and report any symptoms that you experience (even those that don’t mirror this specific condition) to your doctor as soon as they happen to you.
The good thing is that enough is known to treat the disorder without having to use invasive methods.
