Response from Mr. Kull

Please refer to my responses to "Rashes and HIV" ( and "What's exactly a rash?" (

Rashes can be caused by many different things, many of which have no long term significance. If you really have questions about a rash that you are experiencing, see your primary physician or a dermatologist.
