Cysts

Did anyone break out with random cysts all over their body? They are appearing on his rear (cheeks) under his arm and a few other scattered. They are painful and the size of dimes. I'm going to call his NP tomorrow, but I was wondering what you all thought too. Thanks again!

Possibly boils per dr... Going on antibiotics when I get my tired butt to the pharmacy tonight! Not a known side effect, but there is no other reason for them. Who knows!!  Thanks'

What did the doctor say?
My husband did get some open sores when the Incivek rash was at its worst. In addition to hydroxyzine, triamcinolone, and eucerin, we put tea tree oil on the open sores.

Never heard that symptom before.  You know you can go to incivek.com
and call the phone number listed for the 24 hr. nurse.   I do think that you
should call you doctor.
