Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
I'm a bit confused- your body temperature is high but you don't have a fever? If you don't have a fever, then your temperature is normal.
You might be describing your skin feeling warm (or perhaps, red) to touch. While not associated with HIV, per se, you could be having a mild allergic reaction to one of your medications or a host of other issues (mostly mild).
In any event, sounds like it's time for a conversation with your doctors about your concerns. BY
timing of taking meds
Treatment selection...tough time
