  • 1.  Treatment with Triumeq

    Posted 02-24-2023 08:47

    Hello, Is it possible that due to following the treatment with Triumeq, different types of moles/tags to appear on my body? I have been taking the treatment for several years and I notice that many things appear on my body, is it possible that it is an adverse reaction to the treatment?

    Dear Deea,

    While my 35 year plus medical career has taught me that nothing in medicine is impossible, I dare say that common things are common and therefore it is more likely that skin tags and 'moles' are not a side effect of the ARVs. Skin tags and actinic keratosis are very common in everybody, HIV or not. Ignoring your age and other medical history, I would recommend a dermatological evaluation and hopefully, your mind can be put at ease. Keep up the good work with taking your daily ARVs! Best,
