Response from Dr. Henry

You dont mention what is your HIV regimen, current clinical status, other medications you are taking, family history of hair loss/baldness, presence of other conditions (ie hepatitis C, alcohohl or other drug use, hormone abnormalities). Hair loss is common in the general population and perhaps more common in HIV+ patients but often firm data linking to a particular regimen or drug is lacking so condition is often very frustrating.

What can I do about facial warts that I have been getting?
