In brief: No, not contagious

Stevens johnson syndrome (sjs, em major) is a rare and sometimes fatal allergic reaction but is not contagious.
A person can have fever, malaise (general discomfort), skin itching, joint aches, and a fairly rapid appearance of reddened spots or patches. The rash can have "target" or "bulls-eye" spots, and even blisters. Eye irritation can occur, as well as sores on eyelids, lips, and in the mouth.
