I was experiencing a strange rash...along with a few other symptoms...went to the doctor..she took one look at the rash an knew exactly what it was..Sjogrens Syndrome (pron. show-grins) She said its prodominately found more in women. I have never heard of it before...has anyone else ever been diagnosed with Sjogrens?

I don't have any personal experience with it but go to medlineplus or and type in Sjogrens syndrome and information will come up.I looked(quickly) but didn't see anything about rash or it's relationship to HIV,it seems to be a genetic disease.Does anyone else in your family have it?
I hope this helps

Its an autoimmune disease. WebMD also has a nice write up.
