Steven's Johnson's syndrome is a skin disease often caused by Toxic reaction to Medications such as Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory medications that many of us take regularly. both Cox 1 and Cox 2 Nsaids are implicated as well as other drugs. it can also effect the eyes by way of Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis.
