What to do when you develop a rash?
Dec 31, 2005

What to do when you develop a rash from taking Truvada?

Response from Dr. Henry

The type of rash and any accompanying symptoms needs to assessed by your HIV specialist. In most cases an isolated mild or even moderate rash can be treated through. Looking for other drugs which may contribute is important since often it is another drug that actually is the main cause. Antihistamines such as Benadryl or hyroxyzine (even loratadine=Claritin) can help as can H2 blockers (like cimetidine) in some cases. KH

Excema or Scleroderma?
