aids

Avatar m tn This usually occurs in the starting months of HIV infection when HIV/AIDS - early symptoms of HIV infection start surfacing. Some of the most common symptoms in the first few months of infection (if the virus has infected) are sore throat, digestive problems, tiredness, rashes on skin, aches, pains and swollen lymph nodes.

Avatar n tn Instead, it seems to act indirectly, by attaching to the surface of white blood cells known as monocytes, thus preventing infection with H.I.V., said Dr. Tessie B. McNeely and Dr. Sharon M. Wahl, the scientific team leaders. They reported the findings at a meeting sponsored by the American Society for Microbiology.

Avatar f tn Sometimes my ears Plug up and the stuff coming out of m lungs and nose is dark yellow and green. Are these HIV symptoms? Should I get tested? I also noticed a Nicole sized rash on the top of my hand but it may be a bruise as its not itchy and not raised. I'm freaking out here!
Avatar m tn Those websites that say that a bogus and not educated in the subject of hiv and how its transmitted.Stick to the facts and they are if a condom is used correctly and doesn,t break then its 100% affective in the prevention of hiv transmission.Stop trolling websites that peddle garbage.

Avatar m tn you don't know anything about HIV if you think HIV is transmitted that easily.
Avatar m tn According to the ever-so popular and quite sickening myth, humans can get HIV and AIDS from dogs through bestiality. Do you beleive this to be true? Why? (supporting facts would be helpful) 4. The CDC, otherwise known as Center for Disease control, states that you cannot get HIV or AIDS from dogs. However, the CDC does not specify any means of viral transmition. Why do you think this is? 5. Over 80 percent of my findings on the internet state that you cannot get HIV/AIDS from dogs.
Avatar m tn Hello. Again. Why are you so worried? Because you have severe HIV ANXIETY, that's why. And since you won't believe what you've been told on the HIV Forum, what you've been told on various HIV/AIDS Hotlines, what I gave you to read and what I've told you numerous times, then it's time you got into therapy. You can only be given the FACTS just so many times before a line must be drawn. I will outline those facts once more and then, for ME, the line will be drawn.
Avatar n tn Dr. I am worried about possible HIV infection and confused by propability rates. I have had maybe 75-100 protected vaginal sex episodes with sex workers over the last 7.5 years. Most of these in Latin America and the Caribbean but one in Southern Africa and one in Sri Lanka. I have never tested because I always used protection though sometimes drunk. So it is possible that I have been infected for up to 7 years.
Avatar f tn You could get hepatitis C through contact with an infected person’s blood.
Avatar n tn Canker sores remains a mystery, cause unknown, and sores in the mouth of various kinds, both aphthous stomatitis and other problems, occur with increased frequency in AIDS -- but like yeast infection, this also is a sign of full-blown AIDS, not early HIV infection. Finally, I hope you asked your partners their HIV status. Among men who have sex with men, "do ask, do tell" is just as important a part of safe sex as using condoms for anal sex.
Avatar n tn Presumably you have read about oral hairy leukoplakia and HIV. OHL is a sign of advanced HIV infection, i.e. overt aids -- not a new or early HIV infection. I very much doubt you have such a thing, but if you are concerned about an abnormal appearaince to your tongue, see a doctor or your dentist. Whatever you have, it is not related to the strip club events you describe.
5054727 tn?1362955307 And oral sex is basically safe sex -- completely safe with respect to HIV and although not zero risk for other STDs, the chance of infection is far lower than for unprotected vaginal or anal sex. Please educate yourself about the real risks. If you stick with oral sex and condom-protected vaginal or anal sex, you have no HIV worries and very little worry about other STDs.

Avatar m tn Has anyone heard of this hiv like virus in china? If so please share FACTS with me! I'm hoping it's bs.!!
Avatar n tn Testing does not give a person HIV but it does give them the power to know what is going on and whether or not they have the infection. Most tests are negative and if you were so unfortunate as to have HIV, the test would allow you to seek treatment sooner. There is no reason to delay or avoid HIV testing. I hope my comments are helpful.
