my husband is on ARV's. he has developed pimples in his face. what can we do. we visited our doctor several times, he give him ointment and some tablets, but they are still there.

Response from Dr. Henry

Flare-ups of acne like lesions can occur when persons start effective HIV meds. That sometimes is related to an improvement of immune function which paradoxically causes some clinical problems. Dermatologist can often make a more specific diagnosis and try different therapies other than what you have already tried. I would discuss with your husband's HIV provider. KH

what is causing the fat?
lipo suction
