Leg sores
May 17, 2010

I've been on meds for about a year now. But just recently I've developed red marks and sores on the lower half of my legs. Is this a side effect of the meds?? Or is it caused by the HIV?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Unfortunately "red marks and sores" are not something I can diagnose over the Internet. It's doubtful this is related to your HIV medications. I would suggest you have your HIV physician specialist evaluate this problem.
