Many lose weight on Wellbutrin. If not sleeping well, grinding teeth at night, Etc, need anxiety management. To the nodes; Someone had to examine u, get a second opinion, but may need 2 consider re-eval of meds

I was wondering are HIV rashes constant or do they come and go?

Depends on the rash

Hiv
The rash associated with acute HIV (red flat rash over trunk & sometimes face) occurs in 50% and is very transient. Kaposi sarcoma lesions tend to stick around a long time with or without treatment. Eosinophilic (allergic) dermatitis assoc w/HIV tends to stick around w/o therapy & fungal infections do the same. There are some specific rashes to late stage HIV which also stick around a long time
