Response from Dr. Feinberg

Molluscum lesions can be treated by a dermatologist, but that can also be expensive if you have a fair number of them. Control of HIV infection through use of combination meds may be the best answer, because you may experience a general improvement in your immune system that can then control the molluscum infection.
