alleviating ARS symptoms

Sep 2, 2001

Hi Dr. Thanks a bushel for everything!

I was wondering if one were to have true ARS, can antibiotics or over the counter medications help alleviate some of the symptoms such as fever, swollen lymph nodes and coughs? Can these also help swollen nodes caused by HIV infections?

Thanks ;)

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Antibiotics will have no effect on the HIV virus during acute infection. Symptomatic relief can be obtained for symptoms by many over the counter meds.
