Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids virus pictures


Avatar f tn And I live in a rural area where we don’t have free hiv/aids testing! (I googled and we don’t even have any in my state at all) And the last time I went to my doctor in January it was extremely/extremely expensive. I do plan on saving up to get a blood test done soon enough, but I’m just looking for reassurance. I get that really any sexual practice without protection is risky. I’d even say sex with a condom is even risky because you take the risky of it breaking, slipping off, etc.
Avatar n tn I would check an HIV/AIDS support forum. This here's for HCV folk. Please excuse me if you do have HCV, just wasn't sure by the sounds of your post. But as was mentioned above, candida (yeast) is the cause of oral thrush most...all?... of the time, so maybe you should check that out. Good luck finding your answers!
Avatar f tn You tested negative so if the test was past the 4 week window, then you do not have HIV. HIV doctors can't diagnose from symptoms so neither you nor I can either so it is time to stop trying to link your symptoms with a diagnosis of HIV. SInce you work in a clinic I hope you can get more info on HIV there, so you will accept your negative tests.
Avatar m tn To confirm the data finally you can ev let make an HIV-PCR assay, direct virus detection, highly sensitive. If also this is negative (what is likely) I would exclude that you had been infected with HIV in this past event described. Considering the tongue problems, you could eventually contact the dermatology in the XXX. Specialist 2: Dear XXXXX, I am not sure whether RT-PCR solve our problem. In the case you do not have HIV-antibodies 1.
20817617 tn?1521532028 Hello, well we are not doctors on here but I am a microbiologist. You have quite a medical history. I am not an HIV expert. If you do have HIV were you tested and confirmed positive? If so then I don't know any particular doctors in Los Angeles but these links might help: The CDC has other things on HIV that might help. I personally don't look at links off of MedHelp.
Avatar n tn and would point out that no single case like the deputy president's can be extrapolated to an entire population group. (Especially someone in an adminstration whose president has denied the role of HIV in AIDS or the utility of antiviral treatment!) But this discussion is over. Politics and broad social issues, beyond STD/HIV, are not accepteable in this forum. Further comments along those lines will be deleted.
Avatar m tn Another example was family members talking about the movie ‘Forest Gump’ and the character ‘Jenny’ passing away due to hiv/aids. The Cialas commercial’s fine print mentions. I was at a friend’s house and her mom was watching ‘Grey’s Anatomy ‘and the episode was a someone getting poked by a need from a patient with hiv…I can go on and on and on. How is it possible for this to keep happening? How can I move on if it does keep happening? Could they really be just coincidences?
936016 tn?1332769204 We know that gonorrhoea and also Chlamydia will increase the amount of HIV virus which is shed from both the cervix and also in semen of HIV infected men and women. Equally, concurrent infection with herpes 2 virus in the genital tract of either of the individuals will make HIV acquisition much more likely for a previously HIV negative partner.
Avatar m tn Do you have an AIDS classification? No.. You don't even know if you were exposed and have HIV. KS is an OI in people with HIV that have had HIV for years and no under treatment.
Avatar f tn You can't diagnose HIV by symptoms. Half of the people infected with HIV didn't have symtoms and won't unless they are not on medication.
Avatar n tn I have, over the months, searched the net for various things related to symtoms of HIV. Only recently I have realized, based on my search, that HIV has 5 stages ranging from the infection till the development to AIDS. I have an ulcer in the beack of the tongue and went nuts thinking this was an ARS symptom.
Avatar n tn Of course - anyone that has risky sexual contact who then develops any type of symptoms, will start to come across all sorts of pictures, quotes, stories, symptoms that are highlighted in relation to HIV online. Because we have come to trust the internet, we start to assume they must be correct. It's like a smoker finding an ulcer on their lip and assuming the worst - when, it is just an ulcer.
Avatar m tn stop trying to self diagnose yourself and see a dr. wrong forum.
Avatar n tn Complete hiv/aids resource.' Then you will see a tab for 'ask the experts.' Then you will see pictures of twenty people. The bottom row of five people, Dr McGovern is right in the middle. Click there and then you will 'ask a q.' Send that to her and then she will respond. you can also browse previous q and will probably find your answer. this is free. Dr M is really great.
Avatar m tn e. overt AIDS -- i.e. several years after catching HIV. Transient cases can occur in association with the initial infection, but only rarely, and probably never as the main symptom.
Avatar n tn For my tongue i did 2 time hiv test for 8 month and it is negative and i dont think to have hiv because i dont have ulcer nowhere in my mouth .I am married of 1 years and as a whole i f??l good except i feel discomfort in stomach and pain in kidney.i dont have this some dental infections or my problem is inside of me.What can be couse on my condition with my white tongue and rash lip.
Avatar m tn I am sorry (nursegirl6572) if I said something offensive, because I am young and I didn't read enough about HIV.. All I know is that it's a fatal disease and I saw pictures and videos which made me scared. I have a question : If I didn't have a risk, what is the explanation of all these symptoms which came immediately after 2 - 3 hours and I still suffer till now after 4 weeks ?
Avatar m tn My tongue has never looked like this and it matches up to some of the pictures of oral thrush on the Internet. Isn't oral thrush a strong sign pointing to HIV infection? Would it be occurring 2 years after a possible infection? Or, is it more likely related to my recent throat illness? Any input would be much appreciated, since I feel very nervous and overwhelmed now.
504029 tn?1399563368 All air-tight situations in which there infected blood has a direct route into the blood stream. HIV is a rather wimpy virus (in the world of transmitted diseases) which is HARD to transmit. I've heard from GOOD doctors who are personal friends that the odds are probably even GREATER than 1 in 1,000 concerning a man catching it from a woman in the U.S. Now, is it impossible? No. There are certain circumstances in which it could possibly occur ... but with YOUR situation ...
Avatar m tn This forum does not address overt AIDS or its treatment, only prevention of HIV infection (see the Disclaimer message at the top of the forum). The estimate of 20 year survival is the average, and there innumerable reasons why many infected people have different outcomes than average. I cannot even guess the reasons in your friend's case. His doctor is the one to answer such questions.

Avatar m tn I had a sexual exposure in February 2012 with bizarre symptoms exactly 2 weeks later that lead me to think on HIV (a cervical swollen lymph node, neck stiffness and then an urinary track infection), but I tested negative several times. In any case, I think the problems on my tongue are related to that encounter. Girl I was with refused to test for anything.
Avatar f tn hi Trafficjam, I read the AIDS can be reversible.
Avatar m tn Hi Shingles virus is not the same as that causes genital herpes. It is not caused by AIDS virus. However it can affect a person suffering from AIDS. Whether or not you have AIDS depends on your sexual history —unprotected sex, multiple partners, partner having STD or partner having other partners etc. Flu like symptoms with swollen lymph nodes is seen a few days to weeks after exposure to virus.
Avatar m tn anxiety can cause some VERY REAL symptoms. hiv is a very fragile virus and is not transmitted as easily as one may think. on top of is alot more difficult for a man to contract hiv from a woman, than it is the other way around. in the grand scheme of things...MOST ppl do NOT have hiv...and it is HIGHLY unlikely that this girl does either. you can test at 6-8 weeks post exposure for a good indication of your status...but follow up at 3 months for a conclusive result.
Avatar m tn Sure enough, I found HIV & Dandruff on Google.... I'll look up this Non_HIV AIDS thing too.
Avatar n tn I am very aware of the terrible things that hiv/aids does to people after seeing with my own eyes when working with children indirectly or directly affected by the condition in Zimbabwe. But what I feel is that the majority of the time talk of this hiv stuff is mostly psycholgical and if one lets it play with their head then it will. If you are using a condom then thats the way forward but being sensible in the first place is the key. I know that I will from hear forward.
Avatar n tn I want to get tested, but I don't have insurance and on a tight budget, Can I get free STDs/HIV/AIDS tests done anywhere? And can these spots be from being sore for having too much sex? Thank you.
Avatar m tn Am I right in saying jock itch/fungal infection would be a later sign of hiv/aids? as ive said before it not responding to treatment since the exposure is my main worry (when it did respond to the same treatment before), but i also had diahrrea and nightsweats and a sore throat a few weeks after the exposure.
