“They said that someone said SJS. Many of my friends commented on SJS, right. Steven-Johnson Syndrome. But there were those who said autoimmune too,” he added.

Steven-Johnson syndrome (SJS) is an allergic reaction with symptoms of rash and blisters on the skin, lining of the eyeball, oral cavity, rectum, and genitals, according to Alodokter.

This condition occurs due to a hypersensitivity reaction to drugs or infections. This disease is an emergency condition that must be treated immediately.

In adults, Stevens Johnson Syndrome may be caused by the following side effects of the following medicines:

  • Gout medications, such as allopurinol
  • pain relievers, eg meloxicam, naproxen, or piroxicam
  • Antibiotics, eg penicillins or sulfonamides
  • The antiviral drug nevirapine
  • Antiseizure drugs, such as carbamazepine and lamotrigine

While in children, this syndrome is more often triggered by viral infections. In rare cases, this condition can be caused by a bacterial infection.

Party have tried to contact the owner of the video, but have not received a response, so it is not yet known how Afina treats her condition.
