Invirase and warts
Feb 4, 2009

I have warts out of control appearing on my head,scalp, around 50 under each arm pit, chest, back, buttocks, feet & legs. They number in the hundreds and continue to increase in number. Some entend a half inch in length while others are flat and cover a greater surface area. They itch and bleed easily and are a horrible site to look at or touch. Living in Carson City, Nevada medically doctors just tell me not to worry about them though they cover my whole body and I cannot stand to touch myself anymore.I'm planning to move back to the Twin Cities, could you please help me?

Response from Dr. Henry

Recommend connecting with one of several good HIV clinics once back on Twin Cities where would likely make a referral to a HIV-savy dermatologist to try and manage the warts which can be a real challenge to adequately treat. KH
