What You May Experience If You Have HIV Infection

The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a virus that, despite its name, seldom kills its hosts but instead causes a slow and painful degeneration of the immune system. According to the latest medical studies, millions of people from around the world are currently fighting this illness. The whole range of symptoms associated with this condition is often underappreciated.

According to an article written by MedicalNewsToday, I will educate you on some of the challenges that HIV-positive patients may experience. A summary of a few of them follows.

1. The Proportion of Body Fat Drops Quickly

Unexpected weight loss is another symptom seen by some people living with HIV. An HIV patient who isn't taking therapy may also have diarrhea, nausea, and loss of appetite. Rapid weight loss may occur in any of these conditions according to studies.

2. Changes on skin layer

Unusual skin sores are one of the telltale symptoms of HIV infection. Many sorts of colors are on offer, ranging red to pink to brown to purple according to studies.

3. Increased rate of lymph nodes

Lymphadenopathy is a symptom that frequently appears early on in HIV infection. Any of these symptoms that don't go away should prompt a trip to the doctor according to studies.
