Treatment of Rash when on Copegasys
Apr 16, 2009

Looking for something over the counter to treat skin rash resulting from Copegasys treatment (Peginterferon/Ribiviran). We have tried benedry gel, calamine lotion, neosporin and it just keeps spreading.

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would definitely call your physician to report this since he/she is going to want to see you to determine how severe the rash is before continuing.
