Customer Question
I appear to have symptoms...
I appear to have symptoms of Stevens johnson syndrome. This has been going on since december.. I break out in rashes...that end up burning. Very weak and fatigued all the time. Constant blisters. Mouth sores. At times...quite often, patches of burning denuded skin. Dry sometimes red eyes...the flu which feels like it will never end. Dry mouth, headaches, sore joints, what looks like large paches of reddish to purple bruising all over my legs. A couple of moles which seem to fill with fluid and buldge.blisters which will appear then just split open within hours.the bottoms of my feet and hands are awful with painful tender skin which just splits ipen and are so painful and dry.sores in my mouth...sometimes my throat is so sore i cant speak more than a whisper... At times i cant swallow and have to spend a couple minutes rustling up all the spit i can so i can swallow. Now my genitellia feel so dry it almost feels like i am using sandpaper to clean myself with after voiding. My eyes are now really burning and itchy. Chest pains for two days off and on under my left breast. Completely bloated beyond anything ive ever experienced. And for days i have this extreme pressure just under my ribcage on the left also. Bottoms of feet have itchy puffy white patcheshands other than rash and blisters look almost gray and white, lastly my face is almost tan-grayish tinged with a really subtle yellow. Me, 41 yo female no illnesses or known diseases nor hospitalizations. On citilopram and low dose suboxone. Took lamictal for a couple months till symptoms began the stopped it.what can it be or should I do? Please, i am desperate!

The best thing to do is see a dermatologist for full evaluation.

Here is a good article from a highly respected source that you might find helpful:
