Colour of my Skin Changed
Oct 13, 2006

I am on Neverapin and Combivor as my daily drug but am worried the colour my skin is gradually darkening. What might be the couse and how can I over go this situation? Thank you

Response from Dr. Henry

I have had some African-American patients develop darker skin due to the AZT in Combivir. There are s number of non-HIV conditions athat can darken skin so an evaluation by your HIV specialist and/or dermatologist is warranted to look into that. KH
