hi Doc i have been on combivir twice a day and stocrin once a day. i have developed a skin rash over my body. could it be from the meds or maybe an allergy to dust or mould since i went on a trip to the rural areas of lesotho. thanx
Response from Dr. Henry
If you have been on those meds for > 6-8 weeks without a rash and then develop a rash it most often would be due to some other factor. In the first several months of use the Stocrine can cause a rash or the combination of meds can cause skin flares due to immune reconstitution. There are a wide range of both HIV and non-HIV related skin conditions than can be challenging to sort out . The best place to start out is to see your HIV specialist who is familiar with you and the area. KH
