Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for your post.
Candidal yeast infections (of the throat or vagina) are quite common among persons infected with HIV. Their presence usually indicates at least modest decreases in immune function.
At this point, you should be getting in contact with a healthcare provider that has expertise in HIV medicine. You'll be getting an array of baseline diagnostic evaluations and education about what's going on with your body and health.
Until that time, or should you have any additional questions, please feel free to write back.
Be well, BY
