Symptoms Of Transmission Of HIV?
I want to ask, what are the symptoms that are felt 2-3 months after exposure to HIV?
Hello, thank you Fikri for the question.
HIV is a virus that attacks a person's immune system where the virus damages and destroys CD4 cells that function in maintaining immunity so that people infected with the virus are more susceptible to disease. This virus is transmitted through bodily fluids, such as blood, sperm, or vaginal fluid, and is usually transmitted through sexual intercourse, syringes, blood transfusions, or from mother to child she is carrying at the time of delivery. The initial symptoms of HIV are not typical and usually occur several months (1-2 months) after being infected, symptoms vary, can occur in the form of symptoms of the common cold in the form of fever, cough, runny nose, chills, headaches, etc. which can last a long time and are difficult to heal despite drinking drug. Further symptoms also vary, can cough a persistent cold, high fever up and down, rashes on the skin, shortness of breath, weight loss, weakness, pale, diarrhea / diarrhea / diarrhea / continuous, nausea, vomiting, and so forth. Symptoms of HIV are generally similar to symptoms of ordinary diseases because of a weak immune system so germs will more easily attack the body, can attack the respiratory system, digestion, urinary tract, and so forth so that the symptoms depend on which part of the system is attacked. If complaints arise from a long-standing illness and do not heal and you have risk factors for HIV transmission, it should be checked by a doctor, the doctor will conduct question and answer and physical examination, and may suggest a preliminary examination or screening for patients suspected of being infected with HIV in order to get HIV. proper handling. To prevent the disease, it is best to avoid risk factors for HIV transmission, for example by making safe sexual relations, being faithful to one partner, not changing sexual partners, using condoms during intercourse, avoiding the use of used syringes, using protective equipment yourself when in a work environment where the risk of HIV transmission is high, such as hospitals, clinics, and others.
Thus, hopefully useful.
