Reactions to medications can be deadly

Have you heard of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome? It's a potentially fatal disease that you can get from over the counter or prescription medication.

It causes your mucus membrane and skin to die to the point where it can actually peel off.

Some of the most common medicines that cause the illness are Allopurinol, Lamotrigine, Bactrim, and anti-seizure medication. Even common medicines like Tylenol can cause SJS.

Doctors are still not sure what causes some people to get Stevens-Johnson Syndrome.
