Co-infection
Sep 18, 2013

I have been living with HIV for almost 3 years now. I recently discovered something that may be herpes. I intend to schedule an appointment as soon as possible, but I was wondering how this would change my treatment in the short term and potentially in the long term.

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

Herpes infection is very common in the general and HIV+ populations. While HSV infection can also make getting HIV easier (in negatives) and often painful, there's no effect of HSV on HIV treatments.
