hair loss caused by hiv

Oct 21, 2012

hello doc. whats the best hiv drug treatment for massive hair loss caused by aids? thank u so much.

Response from Mr. Vergel

If you are losing hair excessively, many factors can be causing that.

The only HIV drug that is known to cause hair loss is Crixivan, a drug that we do not use anymore.

Have your doctor check your hormone levels (testosterone, thyroid),nutritional deficiencies, assess your stress level, and other factors that could contribute to excessive hair loss.

Can episodes of shingles repeat for HIV + guys?
