HIV and Boils
Mar 16, 2008
I've been HIV+ for 3 years and no meds. Been to the doctor 3 times for boils (i.e. rectum, ankle and neck). Does having HIV make me more prone to these infections? My viral load is 22,000 and my Tcell is 774.
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Given that CD4 count, it is unlikely that you have any significant immune system problems.
