Why is my rash not gone?

I have finally been successfully treated for hep c.  3 months after the end of the treatment I'm still free of the hep c virus. However, the real bad itchy rash that I had during the time I had hep c has come back. During my treatment with sofosbuvir and daclastavir ( I think it's spelled like that... (-: ) it had almost completely vanished. Is it possible that I still have the same rash even though I'm cured from hep c or should I worry that the virus is coming back? Are there more people that still have that rash after they have been successfully treated?

A dermatologist was the first specialist I saw after Tx, because I got a horrible rash right after I finished. I did a different Tx than you, but I would say get a referral to see a dermatologist, it may just be a result of your immune system being out of whack. It takes 6 months at the very least for the Sx from these drugs to leave our systems. I personally think it takes much longer. Good luck!
