I've recently started taking Lexiva, Truvada, Norvir, and about a week and a half into it I started breaking out with acne pimples on my chest, arms, and face. Have you had any experience with this happening with any of these meds? I'm considering changing my meds. But am not sure where to start. Antibacterial washes dont seem to help as well as most acne medications.

Starting effective HIV meds often can cause flare-ups in various skin disordrs (often not regimen specific). I would alert your HIV specialist to the problem so he/she can offer treatment advice and observe what happens over the next several weeks/months. KH
