Sprue Does Not Go Away In Patients With HIV
I am a sufferer of HIV / AIDS and I now have mouth ulcer and sore throat. I have been swallowing for a month and have difficulty eating and drinking, what should I do?
Thank you for the question.
HIV / AIDS is a virus that suppresses the immune system, making you more susceptible to infections, and many other diseases. Thrush and sore throat that you experience may also be the fruit of infection around your oral cavity and throat. Although it can also, this complaint occurs due to lack of nutrition, dry mouth, allergies or irritation, benign or malignant tumors, gastric acid reflux, and many other causes.
It is true, complaints like this, if not handled properly, can make it difficult for you to eat and drink. In fact, to increase stamina and endurance due to HIV / AIDS, you need to consume foods that have a balanced nutritional value.
Our advice, you first handle your complaint by:
If the oral cavity or throat feels painful, relieve it first by taking paracetamol
Drink a lot, a minimum of 2-3 liters a day
Eat more fruits and foods high in calories and other proteins, can be mashed to make it easier to swallow
Don't eat spicy, oily, gassed foods, especially if you are allergic
Diligently brush your teeth and rinse with salt solution afterwards
Don't do free sex and other risky HIV / AIDS behaviors
Take the time to exercise, at least 30 minutes a day
Don't think too much
Routinely take medication and live the control to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine as recommended
By prioritizing staying at home and doing independent handling, then your risk of contracting dangerous diseases (including COVID-19) due to your weakened immune system can be minimized. Conversely, if the above efforts do not improve the complaints, do not hesitate to check with your doctor huh ..
I hope this helps.
