I think you should consult an HIV specialist or dermatologist as soon as possible. What regimen are you taking? Are you managing your diet and drinking plenty of water?

Do I think the cure is coming - yes! I do. They have been able to cure the man in Germany and have learned a lot from that case. There are lots of gene therapy trials that have recently been launched concerning the mechanisms that seem to have cured him, as well as RNA therapies that are in the works.

My goal is to adhere strictly to my meds, exercise and eat right to stay healthy and happy until a reliable cure is widely available. With the modern meds alone and a healthy lifestyle, we can live decades. A lot can/will happen during that time. Stay positive and hopeful and take good care of yourself. Be happy and stay on top of your health.
