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.
