Common Questions and Answers about Aids in the 1980s


Avatar f tn I am a school teacher and now I know I want to dedicate my life to education about HIV/AIDS. Nobody should have to go thru this. The world is far too AIDS unaware. We need to bring it out in the open that HIV can affect anyone and it does affect people just like you and me. I know there are organisations doing just this, but really, there is still a negative stigma attached to AIDS and there needn't be. more needs to be done, especially for young people.
Avatar f tn This is consistent with infection of young people in the 1970s and 1980s – before hepatitis C was identified – and the natural history of chronic hepatitis C." The illness has caught up with thousands of Edinburgh adults, some of whom only dabbled in drug use and discovered they were infected sometimes two decades later. It is thought that in Scotland around 100 people a year die from liver disease linked to hepatitis C, a figure set to soar.

Avatar m tn I remember the public health notice advertisrments on UK television in the 1980s. I don't watch television much or read newspapers like I did so I couldn't compare the current public health education in the media with the 80s. There seems to be a lot in the way of awareness campaigns in gay bars etc after years of new infections in the gay community slowing they are on the increase again and other STIs are out of control.
Avatar m tn The answer is exactly the same as it was when you asked about blood in your food back in November. You do not have an HIV concern but you are clearly in need of mental help so I suggest you find one to talk with about your irrational phobias.

1040373 tn?1273687488 Sometimes voices will be too loud - and even chewing noises, or the scraping of the pepper grinder, can really get on my nerves. Packing tape and the clang of the trashcan are the worst! I used to be able to keep up with several people at once, but now I can't, and I don't think it's my ears. I think it's my brain - I'm no longer able to multi-task like I once was.
Avatar f tn Yes.....Your body can become physically dependent on sleep aids. In most sleep aids, the medications is just diphenhydramine which is aka for Benadryl. You might be able to get to a point where you can sleep on your own again but you would have to stop taking the sleep aids and 'detox' so to speak. The sleepless nights won't last forever, just until your body gets used to not having the medication in your system and your natural body sleep mechanisms take over again.
Avatar m tn Hello, can you tell me about AIDS window period rash style and quantity, and how long will it last? I am an unprotected intercourse on the back skin rash, in the arm, leg, back, buttocks, has lasted for a month, but no other symptoms.
Avatar m tn Sometime between the 1960s and the 1980s a sprained ankle would get wrapped; however, the area to be wrapped would usually use spray with an aerosol that would turn your skin kind of a sick yellow. This spray made the skin “stickier”, I’m guessing, to make the wrap hold better. I’m filling out a health report that asks the question about allergies. I would like to be able to include that spray in my answer; however, I cannot think of the name for that spray. Can you help me?
Avatar m tn Hi, A few days ago, i was in the public bus in Athens, and inside was a drug addict who yelled loudly: "I have aids, i have aids, i have aids" and at the same time he begged for money. A few seconds later he pressed the button, and got down in the next stop. Later i pressed the same button and got down in the next stop. I didn't notice any fluid in the button, so my question, is: Do i have any HIV risk from this case?
Avatar f tn When the condom is stretched the pores of the condom are 10 times as wide as that of the virus; in other words, the virus can go through the wall of the condom. The condom was designed for family planning (to strain sperm, not viruses); and a condom is not meant for fornication/prostitution. Research carried out in the U.S. on 89 condoms in circulation on the market proved that 29 out of 89 leaked, which means that the leakage was about 30 %.
Avatar n tn I'm done, this is foolish man. Everybody would have aids like this, and by the way, everyone does NOT have aids everywhere you go man. This guy did'nt wipe you down with active bleeding open cuts dripping all over...ocd with this....

Avatar n tn My husband got relief from the psoriasis in his ears by sticking to a gluten free diet. A certain percentage of psoriasis patients can blame gluten for their problems, but not all.

179355 tn?1207407251 Health officials believe hundreds of thousands of new hepatitis C infections were occurring each year in the 1970s and 1980s, most of them in the younger adults of the era — the baby boomers. The hepatitis C virus was first identified in 1989. Today, about 17,000 infections occur annually, according to CDC estimates. The virus can gradually scar the liver and lead to cirrhosis or liver cancer. It is the leading cause of liver transplants.
