rash from Sustiva all of a sudden...
Aug 30, 2002

Have taken Sustiva for a week, & now am only experiencing was raining, I walked more than usual outside, ...was wondering...what are all the factors that may affect this reaction? Food? Emotional state? Drinking water from fountain? etc??? Thanks.

Response from Dr. Henry

The rash from Sustiva is not fully understood but has not been linked to any of the factors you mention. The rash is a hypersensitivity reaction to the efavirenz itself. Often it is mild and can be treated through-your HIV doc should see the rash and discuss with you. KH

anabolic VS serostim
