Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Sores on the skin of the lower abdomen (bladder area) like cigarette burns that feel sore and wet have many possible causes, including herpes zoster, burns, impetigo, erysipelas, irritant contact dermatitis, and so on. To distinguish them, it is necessary to re-evaluate through a direct physical examination of the actual characteristics of the wound. If necessary, the doctor can also take a sample from the wound for microscopic examination in the laboratory.
HIV is a viral infection that attacks the immune system. Because of this decrease in immunity, people with HIV can be more susceptible to infections, including skin infections. It could be, the wound on your skin occurs due to infection exacerbated by HIV. However, there can also be other causes that make the wound difficult to dry, such as poor hygiene, diabetes mellitus, blood clotting disorders, and so on.
If you feel you have ever carried out risky behavior for HIV (such as having free sex, exchanging unsterilized needles, body piercing, or using tattoos), then there is nothing wrong with seeing a doctor for an HIV screening. This test can be done in a series of procedures called VCT (voluntary counseling and testing) HIV. If it is true that you are suffering from HIV, then treatment can be done through the administration of antiviral drugs that are useful for inhibiting the replication of the HIV virus in the body. However, until now, there is no therapy that can specifically cure HIV.
Here are the first steps we recommend for you:
Avoid touching the wound excessively Use clean and loose pants and clothing Avoid HIV risk behaviors Meet your nutritional intake and exercise regularly to maintain your immune system Take a shower twice a day Do not exchange clothes or towels with other people Avoid applying any medication to the wound without advice doctor hope it helps
