I have tiny white spots appearing all over my body, forming pulsy heads leaving white skin. What could cause this andhow could I get rid of them (internally and externally)? Just for you, I've been diagosedwith Hiv. Also, apply that same question to the dark/purplish spots that also appears all over my body.

There are a wide range of skin problems (both white spot and purplish spots included) that can be seen in the general population but may be more common in HIV+ persons. I recommend a thorough evaluation by your HIV specialist and possibly a referral to a skin specialist (dermatologist) to sort out the possible conditions and to devise a treatment recommendation. KH
