3 HIV Signs That Should Not Be Taken For Granted

Dharmendra Choudhary

HIV is one of the most dangerous illnesses that may be contracted by anyone at any point in their life time. One of the reasons for this is that it is both lethal and incurable; when an illness is incurable, people are forced to live with it for the rest of their days. Because of the virus's lethal nature, individuals are typically quite cautious of contracting it; yet, the reality is that a large number of people are infected with this horrible illness.


The indications are not written on people's faces, but if you observe any of the symptoms mentioned in this article, you should seek medical attention immediately to ensure that you are not infected with this horrible illness. You will fare better if you are diagnosed early on if you are suffering from it. The following are some warning indicators that you should never ignore.

1. A person living from HIV/AIDS will develop skin rashes and skin sores, which are two of the most obvious symptoms. Immediately notify your doctor if you detect a sudden wave of rashes that are often red in colour and that easily grow into sores. This is especially important if you have shared a weapon or engaged in unprotected copulation with someone other than your spouse. It is important not to remain silent about it if you do not wish for it to take over your entire body and render anti-retroviral medication useless.


2. Secondly, swollen lymph nodes are generally the body's way of combating illnesses or, at the very least, of alerting you that something severe is at work against it. If you have the Human Immune Virus, your lymph nodes will swell up in various locations throughout your body as your immune system begins to battle it. It is normal to detect swellings beneath your armpits; nevertheless, you will also notice swellings in your inguinal area, as well as swellings in the neck. Not only should you not ignore lumps that appear abruptly all over your body, but you should also seek medical attention immediately.

3. Constant Fever and Night Sweats; I am sure that many of us are aware that this is a major indicator of HIV infection, or at the very least that we have been informed by medical professionals that this is a significant sign of HIV infection. The answer is yes, you should go to the hospital if you begin to have continuous night sweats even in low temperatures, along with a fever that occurs on occasion (i.e. not always permanent) and might suggest malaria or another common infection. The presence of a constant fever and night sweats almost always indicates that your body is combating something really dangerous.


As we all know, the first thing that happens when the virus that causes HIV enters your body is that your CD4 cells are destroyed (White Blood cells). In medicine, white blood cells are referred to as the immune system; thus, when they are killed by a virus, your body's capacity to fight against illnesses is compromised, and as a result, all manner of infections and diseases infiltrate your body, finally leading to premature death. As a result, the signs and symptoms mentioned in this article are your body's way of communicating with you. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should seek medical attention immediately. Thanks.
