Common Questions and Answers about Hiv treatment children


Avatar m tn There is no such thing as a incubation period in either adults or children with HIV. There is a window period were test may not pick up the virus, this is up to 13 weeks. In terms of HIV leading to Aids, this is on average without treatment is 7 to 10 years.
Avatar f tn And there is almost no chance he has HIV. To my knowledge, nobody in the world ever caught HIV from the kind of event you describe. Theoretically it could happen, but the chance is lower than low. DO NOT TEST YOUR CHILD YOURSELF! I cannot imagine a more worrisome and frightening thing for a young child than to be tested at home by a parent for a potentially deadly condition. It is against his best interest and you must not do it.
Avatar f tn Ribavirin has yet to be evaluated adequately in children, and pediatric doses and safety have not been established. Thus, if children with hepatitis C are treated, monotherapy is recommended, and ribavirin should not be used outside of controlled clinical trials. People with both HCV and HIV infection should be offered therapy for hepatitis C as long as there are no contraindications.
Avatar f tn 2) I still feeling my body is a bit weak and one of my lymph nodes is still swollen and my lips having a cold sore, is it a sign of HIV ? ( I went for HIV test but it shows negative for HIV ) 3) Can HIV silence or hidden for many years , and shown up several years after ?
Avatar f tn Since the beginning of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, approximately 15,000 children in the United States have been infected with HIV and 3,000 children have died. About 90 percent of those were infected with the virus during pregnancy or birth. HIV transmission from mother to child during pregnancy, labor, delivery or breastfeeding is called perinatal transmission. Perinatal HIV transmission is the most common way children are infected with HIV.
Avatar n tn I have read a ton this afternoon and I feel like I have given her good advice. That with proper treatment of hiv she can live a long life and that thyroid cancer caught early is easily treatable and that hiv positive individuals have gone through cancer treatment and have since lived long lives. Just wondered about your thoughts, you seem to really know what you are talking about.
Avatar n tn According to the postings in the forum, I thought I was safe, and did not perform any HIV test, and decided to put this out of mind Now, after about a year, I become quite concerned for the following reasons 1) Lately, I am having some pain in the left of my groin, pin/needle and burning pain in the feet/hands that comes and goes, and also could feel some pea-size bilateral lymph node below the jaw and below right ear.
Avatar n tn If your family doctor is unable to help (and most are not well versed in this disorder), ask for a referral to a specialist with experience in anxiety disorders in children. Young children tend to do very well with therapy and intervention as the "no speaking" behaviour is not yet ingrained into their personalities. The sooner the diagnosis; the better the prognosis. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to write me. I wish you the best ....

Avatar f tn I am a 34yr old male, 160lbs. I contracted hiv in December of 2009, and got diagnosed formally in January of 2010. Started treatment immediately, with 60,000 viral load. I forget my original cd4 count. Up until a few months ago, I was on treatment pretty much the entire time I was infected. There were a couple breaks due to insurance issues, and one break last fall when I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I'm told the diabetes is from the hiv medication.
Avatar m tn At this point you can test for chlamydia and gonorrhea 1 week post encounter, syphilis anytime after 6 weeks post encounter. Herpes and hiv anytime after 3 months post encounter. Indeed until you have proper testing, you would not want to have sex with your wife as you have no idea of the prostitute's STD status. Your children cannot get STDs from you - they're called that for a reason and we don't have that sort of contact with our children.
Avatar m tn HIV can be transmitted due to sharing needles, this is because the blood interact. Unfortunately, there is no cure for HIV (note that HIV isn't the same as AIDS) but treatment for this virus is really advanced. There are medications that permit people live a completely normal life with HIV without developing AIDS. I hope everything is ok, post your results. Personally, I think you didn't involve in high risk. This virus is very fragile and die easily at normal temperature.
Avatar f tn ________________ Indigo children is a label given to children whose parents believe they possess special, unusual and/or supernatural traits or abilities. The idea is based on New Age concepts developed in the 1970s by Nancy Ann Tappe. The concept of indigo children gained popular interest with the publication of a series of books in the late 1990s and the release of several films in the following decade.

Avatar m tn My first question is that, Is myopia hereditary ? If so, how much possibility is there that our children will be also myopic ? If myopic what can be there situation at worst condition ? Can we take any precaution/ corrective measure before their birth to avoid such situation ? If they are high myopic, what are the treatments available ? (so far I know LASIK can be done after min age of around 20 and when the eye power is stable). We are in deep dilame on this .

Avatar f tn The sell over the counter lip treatment to help if you keep getting outbreaks. Not HIV related.
Avatar n tn I had PEP treatment a few months ago after believing i was exposed to HIV through anal intercourse. I was told that the treatment could delay the development of anti-bodies. My question is, since i haven't been on the treatment for months, could it still delay the development of anti-bodies after exposure to HIV even though it isn't in my body anymore? Or does that just occur when taking the treatment?
Avatar f tn I looked up treatment of children after the above post. It appears that there are centers that specialize in treatment of children with liver disease. It isn't recommended that children under 3. Triple treatment isn't approved for treatment in children. The current treatment approved for children is Peg and ribavirin. There is lots to consider before treating someone so young. I personally would not unless it was life threatening. Remember people can live with hepatitis C.
