Exactly what it says is:

"Three strategies for rash

1. Stop for any rash anywhere.
2. Have a dermatologist you can get patients in to see within 24-48 hours; hold the doses until seen.
3. Stop for any rash above the neck; for anything else, reduce the dose to the previous level, and hold it there until you can tell whether the rash is going away (if so, continue upward again but more slowly and/or by smaller steps; use Benadryl or topical Caladryl to control itching while you're waiting). "

It doesn't say "NOT STOP" anywhere, the least cautious 3rd choice says to "reduce the dose to the previous level"

SJS isn't to be taken lightly.

Cheers,
Panda.
