|skin drug reaction

Response from Dr. Conway
In a small percentage of people, such a severe skin reaction can occur when nevirapine therapy is started, usually within the first few weeks. If it involves significant blisters, is spread over half your body (or more) or if it is making you sick (such as causing you a fever), it is important that you talk to your doctor about stopping the nevirapine immediately to make sure it does not get worse.
