Well, after 10 days on Sustiva I developed the "RASH". My Doc has stopped the meds. He said that we can look at new drugs after the rash is gone. It's not the greatest Insurance and he's kind of new to the HIV thing. He wasn't clear on how long this will take to clear up, so can you give me a time frame? Head to Toe rash!

Response from Dr. Henry

The rash usualy clears in 1-2 weeks. I have often treated through even moderately severe Sustiva rashes--I recommend connecting with an HIV specialist if that is an option for you. KH

Does AZT contribute to facial wasting?
Hypersensitive Reaction to Trizivir?
