we are both scare 14 years hiv allergy hives for 2 month any treament could be done is he dying is the beginning anything we can do please help us...can he leave long with those hives...what going on

Response from Dr. Henry

Hives in the setting of HIV infection can be due to a variety of HIV related or unrelated factors so an evaluation by an HIV specialist is recommended. Sometimes hives can be frustrating to treat but in the setting of HIV Infection skin allergies are rarely related to a life threatening problem but more information is needed. KH

Is this a silly concern?
