Epzicom Rash
Jul 24, 2009

I've been on my medication (Sustiva/Epzicom) for over 4 years and now I'm seeing a red bumpy circular rash on my right shoulder about the size of a silver dollar. Do think is is a reaction to the Epzicom? Do you know what the rash would look like?

Response from Dr. Henry

A localized rash as you describe would be unlikely to be due the Epzicom. Abacavir rash is generally more generalized than what you describe. KH
