Extreme Dry Flaking Skin
Dec 17, 2004

My best friends husband has had AIDS for some years. He now is suffering from extreme dry flakey skin and an orange "ooze" from his ankles and sweat glands. Any info to pass on to him for his doctor?

Response from Dr. Henry

I often seek advice from a dermatologist to help out with the often frustrating skin problems experienced by HIV/AIDS patients. KH
