yes u can. i had it when i was younger and all my doctors told my momma that i was gonna die. they even had nuns come talk 2 her and whatnot. its really rare and the majority of people who get it die, due to the severity of it and the fact that most doctors don't have any experience with SJS patients, once again because of it being so rare. it tends to be miss diagnosed as other non life threatening things, so many don't get the treatment they need until it's way out of hand. it's a very scary thing to go through and it's a condition that shouldn't be taken lightly. bless all the hearts of people who have.

Yes, it is a life-threatening condition. There is a mortality rate of about 5% when less than 10% of the body is affected.
