spots all over
Apr 29, 2001

I'm a black male and i have light spots all over my body sometimes my skin itches is this AIDS related

Response from Dr. Dezube

There is absolutely no way of knowing by your description. If you have not yet been HIV tested, then I would recommend that you go get tested for peace of mind. Knowledge is power. If your care provider does not know the cause of the spots, then you may need to get one of the spots biopsied. Often care providers can know the cause of the spots just by looking at them.

Kaposis Sarcoma, symptoms?
Can Gallium scan show something other than cancer
