red spots
Apr 24, 2001

Dr. <i have been searching around for an answer to this, but no one has responded. In the CDCs website on HIV,the FAQ page says some symptoms are "red spots on the skin, in nose, mouth or eyelids." Are these spots they mention Karposi Sarcoma, or are they refering to something else. What are these red spots? Could you please answer?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

I think they're talking about Kaposi sarcoma.
