|Recurrent Sinusitis = HIV?
Mar 10, 2002
I have been fighting recurrent sinusitis over the past 3 months. I am concerned because several Physicians have said Sinusitis is one of the most common infections in HIV+ individuals.
I tested negative 5 1/2 months after my last exposure but my sinus problems have me rethinking my status. What do you recommend?
Response from Dr. Feinberg
Sinusitis is a common infection in all people, regardless of their HIV status. A negative HIV test is a negative test. I recommend that you stop worrying about it. Good luck!
