Brown Age Spots
Mar 17, 2004

I have been on Kaletra/Combivir for 3 yrs. now. Starting numbers were CD4-223 and VL-23,000. Numbers now are 503 and undetectable. My problems is I have "age spots" on my left side of my cheek and forehead. Are these med. related? Suggestions? Thanks for all your invaluable help. Texan in need...

Response from Dr. Henry

I would not generally believe that the spots you describe are due to either "age" of your particular HIV drugs. I would have a dermatologist try to precisely identify what the brown spots are and discuss possible causes. KH

Are you sure that HIV and cardiology risks aren't connected?
