spreading ars symptoms possible?

Jul 22, 2001

There is this question that is bugging me and I would like an answer if possible. Thanks in advance for eading this at least.

My question is, if someone is actually undergoing seroconversion and is showing symptoms such as sorethroats and snuffy noses etc, can this symptoms be passed on to others, as in a cold? I am asking this question as I am afraid that I may be seroconverting and then my family members started to show similar symptoms like the runny noses, is this because I may have accidently infected them as well and they are seroconverting too? Or is it just a cold I am experiencing that is being spread around? I don't know if this question is silly, I really don't have any idea on seroconversion symptoms and whether thery are infectious or not, and there isn't much data about this either.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

HIV is not spread by droplet or aerosol like common cold viruses.
