In brief: Severe reaction

Stevens johnson syndrome (sjs) is a severe immune reaction, usually to a medication.
It can present with rash that leads to sloughing (peeling off) of the skin and mucous membranes (e.g., inside the mouth or vagina). It can also cause fever and damage to internal organs. Urgent treatment by qualified medical professionals is extremely important. See your doctor if you have further questions.
