Response from Dr. Henry
Itching after starting nevirapine and Truvada is most often due a reaction to the nevirapine (needs to be carefully monitored) or related to immune reconstitution often with flare-ups of preexisiting skin problems. Can be tough to sort out so recommend being seen by your HIV specialist sometimes with help of skin specialist (dermatologist). KH
