Concerns about HAART (Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Therapy)

Rashes and Other Skin Problems

The skin is an organ of the body. Without it protecting us we would quickly die. AIDS drugs can produce serious, sometimes fatal, skin problems. These includes syndromes where your skin rots or flakes off leaving weeping ulcers behind (Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) and Toxic Epidermal Necrosis (TEN)). These syndromes cannot be blamed on HIV, they are almost always due to allergic reactions to pharmaceutical drugs.
