I have many KS lesions that have appeared over the last couple months. I just started taking antiretroviral drugs. My doctor says the drugs will make the KS lesions melt away. Is this the case?
Response from Dr. Feinberg
If you have a good response to your HIV drugs it is indeed possible -- but not guaranteed -- that your KS will go away. Give it several months. If your KS does not respond, you can seek treatment specifically for the KS itself. But it's worth waiting to see what will happen.
