Question

Am I having a breakout because of PEP?

I am having breakout on my face, I have been on PEP for more than 2 weeks. Is the breakout symptoms of HIV or is it because of stress I am dealing with or PEP consumption related? (I have pimple showing up after one has healed but still has a mark. Normally i rarely get consecutive pimples on my chin/mouth area)

Answer

Hi, how are you doing?

A breakout is not a symptom of HIV. As you have mentioned, this breakout is most likely caused by the stress of being on PEP.

A breakout is a normal thing. PEP is not going to cause this.

Josh.
