Steven Johnson Syndrome after effect, tearing eyes.
Jun 8, 2005

After taking HIV drugs for 2 weeks developed Steven Johnson Syndrome,was so severe, recovered but now I have tearing eyes and burnt skin. What can I do?

Response from Dr. Henry

Often help from a burn center or skin and eye specialist is needed in that setting after such a serious reaction. I would possibly ask for a referral after evaluation by your HIV specialist. KH
