Feeling Bad

I found out about 5 weeks ago that I tested positive for hep c. I havent seen a doc yet bc I have no medical coverage. Since my results I have been having boils that come up on my butt and thighs, sometimes multiple boils. As soon as I think they are gone another one shows up. I'm kinda thinking that this may be related to the hep c but not certain. Any advice or knowledge on the issue would be appreciated. thanks

Greetings and welcome to the Forum I am unsure if there is a connection between the two conditions. I was wondering which test you had doe your Hepatitis C. The reason is that it is common for most doctors to test for the Hepatitis C Antibody first. If that test is positive then the next step is to have a PCR. The difference is that the antibody only means you have been exposed to the virus *not* that you necessarily have it. Do you remember off hand if you had both tests?

It is really important that you are able to clarify this. Meanwhile perhaps others might offer insight to your skin problem.

Best of luck
