Thanks Doc. He is still in hospital under care of a peadiatrician. He did not want to discharge him yet as he felt the reaction is still not 100% controlled. He did not think it was SJ. I will let you know of any further developments.

Thanks for letting me know.Your son's skin should not be blistering with urticaria. This is usually a sign of a Stevens Johnson reaction [SJS].If the blistering persists or extends in any way then inform the doctor immediately.
