Red,Itchy bumps on face, neck and chest
Dec 23, 2009
I've been taking Truvada+Reyataz+Norvir for 3 weeks and now I developed red, itchy bumps on the face, neck and chest areas. They really bothered me so much. I called my doctor and he told me to stop taking Reyataz+Norvir but I am still taking Truvada. Is there any way that I can get the rash go away?
Response from Dr. Henry
I would call your doctor and ask to be seen-you may be having a flare of eosinophilic folliculitis or seborrhea which can occur when starting effective HIV meds (part of immune reconstitution) or some other condition. Truvada alone is not recommended for treatment and ritonavir/atazanavir does not often directly cause a rash such as you are experiencing. KH
