Hi, after years of refusing a therapy, i decided to start Haart. I would love to know which medications are supposed to give eventual acne,pimples or spots. I am not talking about rash but proper acne lookalike or only little small liquid filled spots. Thanks so much for your precious help, Cristina

Response from Dr. Henry

Sometimes the skin becames inflamed as the immune system improves (frustrating as that may seem) so that may not be due to a single drug. I often have patients see a dermatoligist to try and help out with skin conditions that develop while on HAART. KH

why did my HIV progress so fast?
