Is it possible to have developed chronic hepatitis c with hiv/hcv co-infection and have only mild symptoms? Mine are headaches, periodic discomfort in the bottom right rib area, some hemorrhagic rashes on my feet, mild jaundice, and dermatolgical issues on my face - increased acne, new freckles, etc.

Response from Dr. McGovern

If you have jaundice, you certainly want to visit your physician for further evaluation.
