facial skin condition
Oct 13, 2004

I have a skin condition on my face only-I get small nodular shaped clear fluid filled bumps-they are in the beard area and above it-the clear fluid drains-then they bleed-and of course scar-I have been to many dermatologists-no one has identified what it is? Is a conditaion that sounds familiar/ I am hoping that what I described-may ring a bell-either to the you the doctors or perhaps hiv'er who read this. I hate having my face get so scared.

Response from Dr. Henry

It is difficult over the internet to comment when dermatologists have already been consulted. You don't mention what your HIV status is and which HIV drugs you are on. KH
