Response from Dr. Wohl

Dear Dawn,

This is a website for people to ask questions related to HIV infection. I am answering because you are describing a rash on your child and this can be serious. You should take your child to a doctor at once for an evaluation. If you do not like the advice you are receiving from your current doctor, go to another.


To Switch or Not to Switch that is the ?
