Stop takng the meds but rash is still there
Dec 27, 2009

It's me again! thank you for answering my question. I have seen my doctor and he order to stop taking the truvada+reyataz+norvir. It's been a week now and the rash is still on my face, neck and chest. How long would it last and how to make them go away? thanks

Response from Dr. Henry

Serious skkin rash due to your HIV regimen is not common and if one of the drugs were the culprit rash would be expected to fade over several weeks. If persistent would consider other possible causes. KH
