icthy skin and scattered on and off spots
« on: October 03, 2009, 07:38:22 PM »
am writing this in despair for help.
Been living with HIV for 5 years and not on any meds. My numbers are cd4 600, VL 3320.
However, my skin is icthy with on and off spots. My skin started itching in dec 2008 thou that was mild but in June, some goose urticaria spots starting appearing on my body. The spots were very itchy but would last upto 12 hours then disappear.
My Doc started me on Dermol wash and lotion plus acqeous cream. This could only soothe for a couple of hours then the itch wld appear again. Till i started on an anti-histamine.
This seemed to have helped with the itching somewhat but the spots have changed the nature. Its more like foliculitis and lasts for a couple of days then leaves a black shade of scar on my skin.

Am pertified coz my Constulant says he has not come across this  and more so with my numbers and he has decieded to reffer me to a demertologist.
Please, anybody who has suffered this before help me.
Its nearly a year with a itchy body and these horrible spots coming and going.
