Acne and HIV connection
      #270802 - 02/26/13 06:07 PM

I had suffered from fairly bad acne for over 2 years now. In September I started having a laser treatment to try and solve the problem. I finished my cycle of treatment in December. I have also been on medication for over a year however all these things I have done to try and fix it have not worked and my problem never improved.

In November I had unprotected sex with someone who I am not sure of their HIV status. Then since January, my acne has near enough completely cleared up. I was tested for HIV in November, after the incident, and although the results came back negative it would be too early to diagnose. I will be tested again next week.

Could HIV be the reason why my acne is clearing up? Or should I just remember all the money I have spent on the treatments and be glad it works.

Acne isn't really a sign of HIV. I know a guy who has HIV but has clear skin. So that's not a good connection. Go get tested. Your results will be conclusive. I hope for the best.
