Difficult to offer any specific help without a full history and examination. Some HIV medications can cause some skin pigment changes. Skin problems are very common in the gerneral population and perhaps even more common in HIV+ persons so sorting out a cause and effect can be a challenge in many situations. I often seek help from a dermatologist to help me sort out rashes in my patients. KH
