discontinuing treatment

i am on treatment for 48 weeks, wascundetectable at week 5, am now finishing week 25. question is, is stopping treatment early(been on treatment 20 weeks virus free already)ever done for this reason? ## Have you asked your doctor? That would really be the best person to advise you in this situation. No one online knows your entire medical history and what the proper treatment plan for you is and what may or not be safe.

Skin reaction

I have had a bad skin reaction to the treatment. My skin is dry, itchy, scaly and sore. Can anybody suggest anything to help calm and reduce my reaction? Any suggestions would be appreciated. ## I have had a bad skin reaction to the treatment PEGASYS for hepatitus . My skin is dry, itchy, scaly and sore. Can anybody suggest anything to help calm and reduce my reaction? Any suggestions would be appreciated. ## Since you do have a serious medical condition and are undergoing this treatment, you should check with your doctor to see what might be safe for you to use. There are certain medications, or topical applications that may help, but most are processed through the liver, so they could potentially cause you problems. Have you talked to your doctor about it?
