Folliculitus and HIV
Mar 28, 2001

What does Folliculitus and HIV have in common? Because a person has Folliculitus does this mean that they are infected with HIV?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

Folliculitis can occur in both HIV+s and HIV-s. It can be particularly persistent in HIV+s, but otherwise they are not connected.

Risk to animals?
do vitamins interfere with the HIV test?
