Is it KS!!!
Sep 19, 2001

Dear Doctor I have a lesion on the soul of my foot. it's round scaley and itches when i touch it. today i was scratching it and some fluid started to come out of it, also there are tiny red spots on and around it. Does it sound like ks? Does ks start 2 years after infection?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

What you describe is not typical of KS, but there is no way to be 100% sure without seeing it. I recommend that you see your doctor for a definitive diagnosis.

Neuropathy... or something else?
