Can this be related to symptoms or drung after effects,Visted a Dr, and said it because of using a Computer i did not buy it ,but now the pain it too much am failing to do some things ie peeling Kindly advise

Response from Dr. Henry

If you have been on the same HIV meds for 2 years is seems likely that your fgure pain is not due to your HIV meds. A thorough evaluation of your fingers/hands is needed as well as a review of your activities involving your hands and possible exposures (i.e. chemicals) that could be causing the peeling. KH
