|Hepatitis C Treatment Side Effects Heat Ears
Sep 16, 2007
Currently on Ribiviran and Interferon for HepC. Have hot spot on my leg. Is this a side effect, what is it from? Problems hearing clearly, a side effect? Solutions?
| Response from Dr. McGovern
A hot spot on your leg could be related to an injection site reaction. If you did not inject here before, I would contact your doctor to be seen for a possible "cellulitis" - a skin infection.
