Dear Dr. Feinberg,
I have just recently had some small white bumps come up in my right eye, in the white part just one eighth of an inch from the iris. Is this some manefestation of hiv. they look like tiny white blisters, and are quite bothersome...it feels as though there is some foreign object in my eye. Some days they feel more pronounced than others. The only thing I can come up with is that I rubbed my eyes after cleaning some peppers, but that was weeks ago. vl=undetect cd4 >200
Response from Dr. Feinberg
This does not sound like any HIV-related problem with me. You may be having an inflammatory reaction (to the pepper, or to something else). Since it's bothering you, I suggest you see an eye doctor.
help, weird mole
