Hives, itching or rash are listed as one of the major side effects of entecavir use, according to drugs.com, and they have to be notified to your doctor immediately. Not to frighten you guys, just sharing what i read on the net, i hope your cases have nothing to do with entecavir.
I Ve started treatment in Aug2016. The first signs of rash were at the beginning of november. Lasted for 3 days. The second one 3 weeks ago. I was on antibiotics penicilin at this time. General practitioner said its a reaction to penicilin. Prescribed antyhistamine. The rash was gone. And appeared yesterday but only 3 red spots, bit ichy, completely gone after i ve taken antihistamine.
The rash looks like hives- red patch which turns into bumps. Hips, waist and bottom mainly
