Symptoms of aids
Symptoms of aids

  • At the early stages when the HIV virus is present it is unlikely for the individual affected to exhibit any specific aids symptoms and therefore at this stage the only way to determine if the virus is present is by performing an HIV test. It is however possible for the individual to exhibit some aids symptoms a few weeks after the infection enters the system, which include: a flu-like condition, increased temperature (pyrexia), headache, enlarged lymph nodes, sore throat (pharyngitis) and red spots or a rash on the skin.

The second stage of HIV infection is termed the asymptomatic stage and is characterized by a significant amount of the virus being present in the blood of the individual infected. At this stage the immune system will respond by producing antibodies and this stage of the infection may go on unnoticed in the body for up to 10-12 years. It is at this time that the HIV virus can develop into Aids if no treatment is undertaken. The individual affected may also start to exhibit further aids symptoms, such as: loss of appetite, night sweats, significant weight loss, loss of appetite, mouth ulcers and persistent coughing. The most common aids symptoms would be mouth ulcers and significant weight loss
