Response from Dr. Feinberg
Many common skin problems, including dry skin, seem to happen more frequently in HIV+s. You should use a non-drying soap, such as Tone or Dove exclusively. I have found Eucerin cream (a very dense cream that comes in a plastic tub) to be very helpful to my patients. It's an over-the-counter item and cheapest in the 1 lb. tub (around $11) but very cost-effective because it lasts a long time.
