I used to smell something wierd and metallic, like metal, and I think I smelled it on someone else with HIV, but now I am thinking about it, I think there are a couple different mild undertones to a certain smell of either having the virus or being on the medication or both. I def remember the metallic smell on myself well on Genvoya, but feel it went away. Maybe I got used to it, but I where cologne and have good hygiene so I don't think others can smell it if it even still exists. Early on I even told my doc about it and researched it.
