I found on the Peg/riba tx the riba sides were worse than my last tx which was with some orals +riba ( Ifn added later though unfortunately)
So what I mean is, I found withou
t Peg Ifn, the Ribas aren't as bad.
With the dry skin & hair I found coconut oil worked well & also washing & moisturising with Aveeno, found in supermarkets & chemists.
Really good stuff.
Unfortunately I also lost heaps of hair though.
to stop, or help stop the riba rash, you need to keep moisturised & keep well hydrated.
My tx's paid havoc on my hormones, I'm more & more sure that they caused the miscarriages .
Also in the third trimester of my pregnancy which gave me my J, I had cholestasis of pregnancy which was caused by the hep as well,
I nearly lost him from that & the torture from the never ending itch & rash from the disease was almost unbearable.
....all worth it in the end though
