Fungus on face follow up

Jan 4, 2004

Yes..this is what my derm. says I have. But I can you explain why I am getting this on my face when my tcell is going up and viral going down? Will I have this for ever? Seems to get better when I get sun on my face...what do you think? He also gave me Nizirol Shampoo..which seems to make it worse..but head and shoulders on my face seems to make it better. Your thoughts..thanks again

Response from Dr. Pierone

You are probably going through a transitional period of immune reconstitution and the skin problem should eventually clear up as your CD4 counts continue to improve. Sun exposure often does help this condition and topical steroids play a role as well. Good luck!.
