I read an inquiry from someone earlier describing "soft skin syndrome" as it was called. I too am having an identical problem where if fabric or anything lies against the skin of my legs(especially) an imprint happens within seconds. I also have a pressing red mark if my legs are close together. I had a negative 4 month Elisa. NEVER BEFORE has this happened until I was at possible risk for hiv. What is going on?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

"Soft skin syndrome" was a joke made by a physician on another website. Relax!
