common cold
Feb 25, 2001

Hello. Is the common cold more common in people with HIV? And do you know how many "colds" per year would be considered "abnormal". Thank you for your time and your service on this site.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

HIV+s are more likely to develop upper respiratory problems, which includes colds, than HIV-s. However, I cannot give you a number of colds that would be "normal" for either HIV-s or HIV+s.

Could This Be Pneumonia?
