Signs To Look Out For After Contracting HIV/AIDs

Healthline says that HIV is a very dangerous virus that can spread in many different ways. The virus can also be spread through sharing needles, needle sticks, and other sharp objects, as well as through blood transfusions and sexual contact without protection.

In this post, we'll look at some of the symptoms that people who got the virus within the first two to four weeks after infection would have, no matter how they got it. Just take a deep breath and read this piece. It has information you won't find anywhere else.

What are the first things a person with HIV might notice?

First, you might notice that your lymph nodes are bigger than normal. This is a common response of the immune system to a virus that has already entered the body. You might get lumps in your neck and armpits that last for up to a week. This is one of the most obvious signs that a person has HIV and should know about.

Second, if you've had the Human immune virus for a while, you'll start to sweat more at night. At this point, there is no doubt that you have the virus, and the sooner you get checked out, the better.

3. You have pain in your throat. This could be a sign that you have HIV. There are other things that can cause a sore throat, so it's important to get checked out if you get one after unprotected sexual activity and it lasts more than a few weeks.

Rash, also called HIV rash, is a red rash that stays on the body and can show up anywhere, including on the face and neck. Get checked out if you get a rash after sharing a sharp object or having sexual relations with someone you don't know much about.
