|FACE RASH/DRY SKIN
Dec 2, 2004
My face has broken out in redness,dryness and hive-like rash on the forehead and into the scalp and I feel like I want to scratch my face off. My meds are Tenofovir,Norvir,Invirase and Reyataz, all of which I began 6 weeks ago.I am a big user of Eucerin which helps sometimes but not consitently enough. Any suggestions? Thanks, David

Thanks for your post.
Dry skin and other dermatologic issues are pretty common in our communities. It's possible (though certainly not sure), that the skin symptoms are related to your new medications.
I'd advise you to speak to your doctor about your symptoms. BY
