I am aging with HIV from 2007 and under medication from 2009(Trustiva).

I have 1100 cd4 count, undetectable viral load. I am frequently getting infected at my crotches area. I have very fatty thighs. It will disappear when I apply any fungal cream like candid b for few days but again it will appear. I am working cannot skip underwear. Please help. Thank you

I suggest you consult with your doctor or a dermatologist for more definitive answers and treatment.

after successful treatment of syphilis the result still remains positive can i still infect my boyfriend?
My doc says I have hep c but
