It's usually in the later stages of HIV that skin changes would show . Initial symptoms would be flu like symptoms such as fever, chills , fatigue, night sweats, loss of appetite, weight loss etc . With the weight loss ,skin and muscles will shrink and atrophy. That's the time when u notice the skin changes. Eat more fruits and veggies to boost your immune system. God bless u!

Please explain why does my skin change color when I'm really cold?

Circulation

Skin
Smokers have capillary fill issues at the tips of your fingers or toes and it may improve if you quit smoking. Others have Raynauds disease and it also causes the fingers to lose color then turn blue or white. Lips can also turn blue similarly to being in a cold swimming pool. It is usually related to blood circulation.

In what way can skin change color without a change in melanin production?

Medical problems

Melanin
If you have liver damage or certain types of cancer, kidney failure, anemia, and other medical conditions you can have changes in your color tones. Hormone medication as well as pregnancy can cause melasma and some prescriptions can also give those side effects. Speak with your doctor about your medical condition, medication list, or diet (too many carrots) and see if you can get help with this

Drug eruption

You don't specify the medication, but many drugs can cause a red rash. If the rash does not go away after stopping the medication, something else may be causing it, and you will want to see your doctor.
