purple dots
Mar 7, 2001

I am hiv pos. i have 2 small reddish dots on my face. Is that normal like from the meds or something? They just came since i started meds.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

Usually rashes that appear in reaction to medications are more than just 2 small dots. To get a precise diagnosis you need to see your doctor or perhaps a skin doctor.
