Skin problems are common in the setting of HIV infection with or without treatment. One of the more common causes is eosinophilic folliculitis which often appear as itchy red bumps near hair follicles. Evaluation by a HIV specialist and or a dermatologist is often helpful at pin-pointing the diagnosis and prescribing effective treatment. KH
