Just found out I have hepc fall of 2013, probably got it in the 1970s. Have no symptoms. I was asked if I had been tested in an er for an unrelated reason. Am healthy in every other way. Have a positive attitude I can beat this.
Hi Sandi, no I haven't gotten riba rash yet. I'm really sorry to hear that you did. A month before I started treatment, I had seen my dermatologist for a breakout of nummular eczema. He recommended a cream called CeraVe. It's available at Walmart and Target. Expensive but worth every penny. So, I had been moisturizing like crazy before starting treatment. I hope you get rid of your rash soon, it must be miserable. Thanks for the tip about low blood sugar. I've eaten very few carbs today, and have had no palpitations, so I really think you're onto something there. Let me know how it's going with the rash, ok?
I'm glad to hear you're doing OK so far. Sorry that you have to do the interferon, but once you attain SVR and cure, any misery you go thru will have been worth it, right? I have genotype 2, so it's only sovaldi+riba for me for 12 weeks. Today is day 5, so I'm right behind you. So far so good, just some reflux and dizziness. How long is your treatment, 12 or 24 wks?
