Response from Dr. Henry

Sounds like you have a challenging skin condition. Not possible to diagnose or offer treatment suggestions without full history and examination. Some cases are difficult to diagnoses and its ounds like you have had a good evaluation. May need to get a 2nd derm opinion. Stopping HIV treatment can aggravate all sorts of health problems so situation is complicated. Sorry cannot be more helpful. KH
