allergic reaction
Oct 12, 2010

my friend has been on truvada and stocrin treatment for little more than a month now, and developed an eye infection, and sore feet, making it painfull to walk, itchy hands swolen lips and slightly swolen foreskin, can this be a possible side effect of the treatment, and even after more than a month, or maybe just an allergic reaction to something else?

Response from Dr. Henry

The symptoms you describe could be related to the Truvada/Stocrine but most often would be due to some other process so clinical evaluation recommended. KH
