Response from Dr. Henry

Facial skin color can change in the context AIDS due to a variety of skin disorders (such as seborrhea, fungal infection), other medical problems, or as a side effect of drugs (HIV or other). A full evaluation by an HIV specialist (with help from skin doctor=dermatologist) is recommended to sort out the involved factors in order to offer best possible course of action). KH
