Can a Foot Cream Cure HIV? 

The end of AIDS may come in the form of an anti-fungal foot cream, says a new study. Researchers from Rutgers Medical School found that in a lab the lotion-like drug Cicopirox tricks HIV-cells into killing themselves without harming healthier cells around them. The study’s authors warn that more clinical trials need to be done with people living with HIV to know for sure if the lotion will kill HIV in the body.
