acne on chest
Oct 31, 2002

For about 2 years I have had acne on my chest that comes and goes from time to time, and it always leaves scars. On no meds.

Response from Dr. Henry

Some patients have cystic acne which can be aggravated by HIV infection. Often that is a very challenging problem. Hormonal imbalances can aggravate that. Seeing a dermatologist with HIV experience can often be helpful. Some topical treatments of pill therapy can be beneficial. KH

What is the least toxic, most durable regimen?
