I'm a 22 year old female
Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman
Hello there- I would suggest you talk with your HIV provider about these sores so that they can examine them, and test them to determine the exact cause. Once you know exactly what you are dealing with, you can be treated and for many causes of sores they can either be treated and cured or you can likely go on medication to stop outbreaks. This all depends on exactly what they are (which unfortunately only an exam and testing will tell). Certainly having a high CD4 count is important and I would also suggest talking to your dr about this (if you haven't already.) Take care, LHW
