|HIV associated with anemia?
Nov 29, 2005
I think i may have an HIV infection, It wasnt too long ago that I was at my daughters school helping with crafts, when one of the parents cut himself, i took the exacto knife from him, and in the process cut myself too, now i just had a sore throat with NO fever or any other symptoms (not rare for me since i have had throat infections previously) But my quetion is, i went to the doctor and was told i had anemia ( i was not tester for HIV) is there anyway that i could have been infected? _the parent stated he did not have HIV
Response from Dr. Frascino
Regarding anemia, there are many, many causes. Talk to your doctor about what your underlying cause may be. I certainly do not believe it has anything to do with HIV.
