Spotty Face
Feb 11, 2006

I'm currently on Truvada & Sustiva. Is a spotty face a side effect of these drugs? If so, what can I do to clear up my face?

Response from Dr. Henry

Facial skin spots due to eitehr Truvada or Sustiva are not very common though skin discolorations can occur with the FTC component of Truvada. I would suggest asking your HIV doc whether a consultation with a dermatologist might be helpful to better define the nature of the facial spots you are experiencing. KH
