Hello

Stevens johnson syndrome requires hospitalization.

Treatment is not with antibiotics unless there is infection.

If there is, it is serious.

Fluids need to be given IV

topical steroids

pain medication.

An antibiotic that covers skin bugs is needed.

You need an x ray to rule out bone spurs.

To diagnose this, and even decide if you need an x ray requires and exam.

See a podiatrist.
