|ANUG & HIV
Jun 1, 2012
I asked you before that I had sex with a prostitute. I used condom but I kissed her deeply(French Kiss). weeks later I found out that there is a sore in my mouth when I went to dentist!
after five weeks, I had Angina Vincent or ANUG (Acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis). I solved the problem but after surfing on net, I realized that there could be relation between HIV and ANUG. Please tell me what is the relation between them? this has really scared me. Some websites mentioned ANUG as a symptom of HIV :(((
Response from Dr. Young
I have no knowledge that Vincent's angina is a sign or symptom of HIV infection.
If you're unsure of your HIV status, you should get tested.
