Early Symptoms Of HIV Virus Infection?
.. I want to ask. How do you know the initial symptoms of HIV?
HIV is a virus that attacks the body's immune cells. This virus has a general effect, because the body's immune system is attacked. Decreased human immunity causes infection easily caused by various microorganisms. Infections that occur can affect the respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system, nervous system, reproductive system, and all other systems. That is why the symptoms of HIV infection are not typical. In the early stages of HIV infection only gives flu-like symptoms, which then subside. If the infection is not treated with antiretroviral drugs (ARVs), years later AIDS will develop. Symptoms of AIDS are very diverse, such as severe pulmonary TB infection, chronic diarrhea, sores in the mouth that do not heal, weight continues to decline, recurrent skin infections, and so on.
It is not easy to recognize early HIV infection based on symptoms. Therefore information is needed on the history of taking risk actions so that HIV testing can then be carried out at health centers that have these facilities. Risky actions take the form of sexual relations by changing partners and without safety, same-sex unprotected sexual relations, sexual relations with commercial sex workers, the use of alternating syringes (for example for narcotics use), the use of alternately sharp instruments (for example, shavers). HIV can also be transmitted from HIV positive mothers to the fetus. HIV is not emnular through saliva and tears. Carry out an HIV test if there is a suspicion of infection. Negative results at least 2 times the examination, generally shows someone is HIV negative.
Thus my explanation, hopefully useful. Regards.
