Hi. I've developed a strange red wrinkly appearance on both of my eyelids and occasionally a miniscule white discharge from the corners of my eyes. Also my thyroid glands are slightly up and I feel slightly nauseous. Could these be symptoms of HIV infection? I'm too scared to get tested.
Response from Dr. Feinberg
These don't sound like the typical symptoms but acute (recent) HIV infection can manifest itself in unusual ways. If you have any risks for HIV (and anyone who is sexually active is theoretically at risk), do yourself a favor and get tested. Then, behave yourself and stop worrying.
