How long would it take for thrush to appear after hiv infection? Also, are bumps on the tongue symptomatic of hiv infection? Thanks.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

Thrush doesn't usually appear until you have been infected for years, on average, at least 5. People with HIV don't get thrush until their CD4 cell count is less than 350. The bumps on your tongue are your taste buds.
