Physical Signs of Infection
Feb 7, 2001

What types of physical signs would someone exhibit during the first year of infection? Which are the most common?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The acute infection syndrome of HIV is usually manifested by fever, headache, swollen glands, rash on the back and chest and other flu-like symptoms. These are usually transient, lasting a few days to a couple of weeks. Some patients can have symptoms for weeks to months after acute infection. Those patients usually don't have symptoms as severe as when they were first infected. MH
