DOC, WHEN HIV INDUCED DRY MOUTH DEVELOPS, DOES IT ALSO DEVELOP DRY EYES AND DRY NOSTRILS AT THE SAME TIME ?? THANKS, PB.
Response from Dr. Reznik
My knowledge in this matter is limited to the oral cavity, where salivary gland involvement with HIV or the effects of medications may cause dry mouth. It does seem logical to assume that if the cause of your dry mouth were medications, which could be something as simple as an antihistamine, other mucous membranes would be effected.
