How to treat a rash while on tripple treatment.
Hi,
Im 48 year old male,
I have got hep c, type 1.I live in the Netherlands,
where the tripple treatment is still new.
I started my treatment on monday,on thursday i developed a bumpy,itchy rash,on both my forearms.
My doctors say if the rash gets worse they have to stop treatment because they can not accurately treat this rash.From what im reading a lot of people develop this rash, and do NOT have to stop treatment.Does anybody have any advice for me how to deal with this rash.Can i for instance use benedryl?Are there other things i can do?What is the difference between a massive allergic reaction and a ''normal''rash that goes with this treatment?l

My husband used Eucerin body wash in the shower, took cool showers, used Eucerin moisturizer after the shower, took Hydroxyzine (Atarax), used Triamcinolone (a topical steroid ointment), and we put tea tree oil when he got a few small blisters on his back.
You need to check the Incivek website.  There are pictures of a "mild rash", a "moderate rash", and a "severe rash".  It's important to treat the rash before it becomes "severe" because you will probably need to stop treatment if it becomes severe.
