, I want to ask on my feet and hands that irregular red spots and excessive sweating are accompanied by a dry cough. My father had HIV when he didn’t know that my father had HIV. I cleaned the wound, could I catch it and did I get HIV?

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for asking at HIV or human immunodeficiency virus is a virus that causes the condition AIDS, a disease that attacks the immune system for which no cure has yet been found. Although no cure has been found yet, various therapies have been found to slow the progression of the disease.

The spread of the HIV virus is mediated by body fluids in the form of blood, sperm, vaginal fluids, anal fluid and breast milk. HIV is not transmitted through tears, sweat, touch, air or saliva. So, HIV transmission can occur through:

Sexual intercourse, including oral sex and anal sex Simultaneous or alternate use of sex aids Use of non-sterile needles From mother to child during pregnancy, during childbirth or breastfeeding Through blood transfusions of infected persons

So the conclusion regarding your question, if you have a history of contact with body fluids with HIV as we mentioned above, and these fluids have access to enter your body, you have the possibility to also contract HIV. In addition, HIV can also be transmitted to you if your father passed HIV to your mother before you were born. However, because the information conveyed is still incomplete, such as when your father contracted HIV, our advice to you is to do an HIV test just in case by undergoing VCT or voluntary counseling and testing at a health care provider center that has this facility.

Apart from all that, you also have to think about other possibilities of the appearance of red spots, excessive sweating and dry cough apart from HIV infection, such as tuberculosis, allergies, and ARI. Therefore, it is important to undergo an examination by a doctor. Your doctor will perform further examinations in the form of blood tests, X-rays and so on to find out the tendency of your disease.

Meanwhile, live a healthy lifestyle by staying away from cigarette smoke, exercising regularly, getting adequate rest, and fulfilling adequate nutrition by consuming milk, eggs, vegetables, meat and fruit. We wish you and your family good health.

That's all, hope it helps.
