The Peg interferon/RBV I started just last
May caused a very intense rash
all over my body. It
did not stop there as it
started becoming like a shingles rash (very painful burning rash). Someone told me that Peg inf has a chemical in it that can cause an allergic reaction in some people. The rash and anemia, hmg, white blood count and platelets returned normal to my baseline after only a month or two.
