Question

My skin changes after being bitten by a mosquito…

Hi! I’ve been on treatment for 5 years, now I’m using TLD in the morning. I’ve been struggling with the spots on my body, it started as a mosquito bite then it’s itching. After that they fade into dark spots. I would like to know what’s the cause maybe, and what can I use?

Answer

Hi, how are you doing?

Do you only notice these spots after being bitten by a mosquito? and when did you first notice this?

Were these skin changes as soon as you started treatment or are they more recent?

ARVs are not known to cause skin changes, even more so localised like what you have described. Have you been to speak to a doctor about these changes? and have you noticed any other changes or things that have changed in your life recently?

Josh.
