Does anyone on here have any experience of being pregnant with SJS? My sister was diagnosed a few years ago, but hers is not an allergic reaction to medication, its an allergic reaction to herpes simplex (the common coldsore virus). So having the coldsore virus in her body all the time, she gets breakouts of SJS quite often. Since becoming pregnant she has had it (mildly) all the way through, and it's starting to get worse now. She is almost 35weeks pregnant. Now they have told her that there's not much amniotic fluid around the baby. We don't know if this could be a cause of SJS, and the doctors here in the UK are pretty clueless. Has anyone actually has this whilst being pregnant??? And what were your experiences???? Did you need a C-Section or did you give birth vaginally???? Thanks x
