What if you had Steven Johnson syndrome from a medication that you need to take. Can you ever potentially take that medicine again in the future?

What if you had Steven Johnson syndrome from a medication that you need to take. Can you ever potentially take that medicine again in the future?

Unfortunately, No: You cannot have this medicine again in the future, your doctor will have to seek an alternative. If it were just a severe allergic reaction or even anaphylaxis, and no alternative available, desensitization can be tried by an allergist/immunologist, but in of case of history of SJS caused by the drug, desensitization won't work, the drug has to be avoided, good luck ...Read more

I'm considering iv glutathione for skin brightening. Is there a risk for steven johnson syndrome with the drug? I've had sjs from taking lamotrigine.

I'm considering iv glutathione for skin brightening. Is there a risk for steven johnson syndrome with the drug? I've had sjs from taking lamotrigine.

No: It's a naturally-occurring substance. I'd urge you, though, not to do this. It may interfere slightly with production of melanin, but the result may not look natural. Here in the US, trying to alter one's skin color is considered the height of ignorance, and we do still set world trends. Taking anything by vein creates an infection risk. Embrace your own genetics and look good by staying fit. ...Read more

Why is it that magic johnson never developed aids?

Why is it that magic johnson never developed aids?

He is taking meds: Actually, we don't know if magic has had aids based on a low CD4 count (a test to determine his immune status) less than 200. It is possible that he could have had an aids diagnosis, but he has been on anti-hiv meds, which are the same as what other people with HIV are taking as well, since his diagnosis.

My little one is 5 months and is having heat rush, have been using Johnson products also tried epimax but it’s not working. Any advice?

Heat rash - keep dry: If it is truly a heat rash, there is no specific treatment, other than sponging, bathing with cool (not cold) water and ensuring that he/she wears natural, absorbing fiber, like cotton next to the skin, as a heat rash is usually caused by sweating a lot. Also keeping cool and well ventilated. If the rash gets worse, it is better to see a doctor to confirm the diagnosis. ...Read more
