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
Upper respiratory infections, which includes colds, are more common in people with HIV, but I have no idea how many colds per year would be considered "abnormal", since there is no "normal" number od colds per year.
shingles vs herpes?
