I am a carrier of HIV, since 93"

Apr 25, 2013

I have lost approx 8lbs. On weight watchers I am at the perfect weight , I have had HIV since 93, I am 47 yrs old and not sexually active for quite some time , My lymph nodes one side of neck and one in groin area enlarged.. I also have a rash.. that is on my arms and neck..What could this mean?

Response from Mr. Vergel

It means that you are showing signs of immune dysfunction. Get your viral load and CD4 cells measured and consider getting on treatment for HIV. There is no such a thing as an "HIV carrier". You either have HIV or don't.
