Symptoms of HIV

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a virus that causes a persistent infection that often results in death, as described by the Mayoclinic. In light of recent scientific findings, it is estimated that millions of people around the world are coping with this condition. In many cases, the full range of symptoms is not fully recognized.

In light of a recent story in "Medical News Today," we'll examine some of the difficulties faced by those who are HIV-positive. The following is a brief overview of a few of these.

Some persons living with HIV also experience unexplained weight loss. In addition, an HIV patient who isn't receiving treatment may suffer from nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. These diseases and disorders can all cause a rapid loss of weight.

External Skin Changes

Skin sores that are out of the ordinary are a telltale sign of HIV infection. There's a wide range of hues to pick from, including red, pink, brown, and purple.

Symptoms include lymph node enlargement.

One of the earliest indicators of HIV infection is lymphadenopathy. If any of these symptoms persist, urgent medical attention is necessary.
