Chloroquine phosphate (Aralen®) is an antimalarial drug that is well tolerated by most people. However, in rare cases, some people develop a dangerous skin rash known as Stevens-Johnson syndrome during treatment. This rash can lead to disfigurement and dangerous infections, so if you notice any rash while taking chloroquine, notify your healthcare provider right away. Immediate medical attention is needed to prevent the rash from becoming more severe.
