Response from Dr. Henry

You need to have your tongue/mouth examined by your HIV specialist or an ear, nose and mouth specialist to see if you have an aphthous ulcer, herpes lesion, or other problem that can be diagnosed and treated. Some HIV meds and HIV associated problems can cause or contribute to symptoms like that so your medication need to be reviewed as well. KH

What's left there for me?
Changin meds
