HIV Related Skin Disorders

There are skin conditions that are common in people with HIV/AIDS. Some are caused by germs that can take advantage of a weakened immune system including Kaposi sarcoma, thrush, and herpes. Others, like photodermatitis, may be linked to inflammation caused by an overactive immune system as it revives during antiretroviral drug therapy or due to the drugs themselves.

Chelsea Skin & Laser has vast experience with HIV related skin issues.
