Itchy skin in HIV.

Abstract

AIDS:

Itchy skin rashes, pruritus, are common in people with HIV infection. Pruritus is associated with HIV-induced immunosuppression, opportunistic infections, cancer, or other illness. Most conditions can be successfully treated when diagnosed. The most common causes of itchy skin include scabies and other insect bites, inflamed hair follicles, drug reactions, scaly skin disorders, and photosensitivity dermatitis. Each of these conditions is described and treatments are suggested.
