Head sweat
Dec 28, 2000

i am 48 yrs old HIV+ have acute infection about six months ago. I am still healthy not on any medications except vitamins. My head is only place that sweat come out when i eat, exercise and even night sweat.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

I don't think the exact location of the sweat has any particular meaning. Since you have recently acquired HIV, you may want to reconsider early treatment. There is research that indicates that you get the best preservation of immune function if you start treatment early.

Horrifying, but could this be true?
Another question please ?
