Sweaty plams/feet

Mar 25, 2005

Dear Dr. Young,

Recently poz. Can you explain what causes sweaty palms/feet in HIV? Mine seem to be constantly so that even when i take a shower my palms become clamy. Not on any meds so it cant be that.


Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

I'm not entirely sure what might be causing your symptoms, though clearly they are disturbing to you. The fact that you're not taking HIV medications reminds all of us that not all symptoms that persons with HIV experience are dur to drugs.

I'd speak to your doctor about the symptoms that you're experiencing.

Good luck, thanks for reading. BY

financial aide for treatment?
