i have fullblown aids, I've lost a good amount of weight over the past couple months, I now have this problem with extreemly dry skin, and I itch like crazy, what can i get to help..
Response from Dr. Moyle
Often skin conditions get worse when HIV treatment are helping the immune system recover, sometimes its infections especially fungi on the skin and less commonly dry skin conditions are associated with HIV drugs (usually with indinavir). The first thing is to see your doctor and see if he can help and if needs be get a referal to a dermatologist, a skin specialist. Regards
