|Please Help, Short Question
Feb 8, 2006
Dear Doctor; How would you treat viral pharyngitis in an Hiv infected individual who is treatment naive? Please provide any information and options open to such a person.
Kind regards. Patient.

Assuming that the patient has a "normal" CD4 count, a true viral pharyngitis is treated the same in the HIV+ individual as the HIV-; namely hydration, analgesics (like acetominophen or ibuprofen) and occasionally local topical anesthetics. BY
