Molluscum Contagiosm
Aug 15, 2002

I need advice. I hm a long term Pwa since 1985. I am trying hard to get strong but with low t-cells , I am unsightly. I swim daily in order to regain muscle mass. I feel at a dead end. People are so cruel in their remarks and have told me I was weird and looking at their children. Not so. I need advice for coping for hostile overprotective parents. I am on a new experimental med of tipinovir: 5 bottles twice a day. I feel like a 42 year old, with acne. The dermtologist treats each site with a needle.Are their other options? I am geting tired of fighting.

Response from Dr. Henry

T-20 should soon be available to help some as well. I assume your nutritional and hormone (thyroid/testosterone) status is OK. Your situation can be depressing for most so seeing a psychiatrist/psychologist can help with the coping. Hang in there! KH
