I am taking Reyatez, Truvada, Norvir, Bactrim, Acyclovir Azithromax and MVI. I am developing a itchy, dry, patchy rash on my neck,chest and abdomen. Is this a normal reaction after 3 months? It will be 12 days before I can see my MD.

Response from Dr. Young

There are many potential causes of rash; the big issue is whether the rash is the first symptom of a developing drug allergic reaction.

If your really developing a rash (especially one that isn't limited to sun exposed areas), I'm surprised that it's taking nearly two weeks to see your doctor. Call your doctor back and asked to be seen more promptly.
