I'm taking a combination of the the three and i'm breaking out HORRIBLY!!!

Is anyone else on these meds and having this issues? Or one of the three above?

Or do I just have really bad skin?

Yes, report it - immediately!
How long have you been on it? Is this a recent cocktail switch, or have you been on the cocktail a while and are just now reacting to it in this way?

If it's the latter, try to have the doc rule out a reaction to something else too.

CALL your doctor "NOW"! I started Truvada/Norvir/Prezista last month....just started meds. In addition to the meds, I was placed on Bactrum (an antibiotic).

I broke out in hives about 2 weeks into the meds. Doc pulled me off the Bactrum, told me to take Benadryl, and call back in 24 hours....or go to ER if hives got worse/trouble breathing/etc.

I cleared up and have stayed off the Bactrum.

NOW, however, I have hypsersentsative skin/minor skin irritations (looks like heat rash) and slight jock itch. But it's managable. Doctor says my body is adjusting to the meds and the virus is "fighting back".....

I've been taking that combination for over four years so far....and no other than a little dizziness at first. I have experienced loss of bone and muscle mass...which means I have to take Calium and Vitamin D supplelments. It took breaking my right leg three times to figure that out....but other than that no other side effects.
