I have written before with no response, PLEASE RESPOND!!!!
Mar 8, 2003

my friend has bumps on his throat. Could this be related to hiv? Leukoplakia ? Or thrush? I have written this forum about a week ago and have gotten no response. Please write back

Response from Dr. Dezube

I'm sorry to disappoint you, but we (i'm referring to all the forum writers) can't and don't respond to all queries. There are just soooooooo many. I tend to respond to ones which have more generalizable messages. We are also under strict orders NOT to respond to "worried-well" who describe a scenario and then ask "could this be HIV".

The reasons that I have not responded to your query and also will not respond to it are

1) "could this be HIV?"- your friend should get HIV tested

2) There's just no good way to look at a lesion over the internet. Again, your buddy should be seen.
