abscess, rash and fatigue
Jan 20, 2003

I have developed abscess all over the armpits and few other areas and rash and itching all over the skin. Being HIV+ does this mean i can start treatment or there is no way i can be rescued since these symptoms have shown that i have AIDS

Response from Dr. Little

These symptoms do not mean you cannot start therapy. You would need to talk to a doctor about the best possible treatment and what the risks might be for you - but I would encourage you to take this step.

hiv and having sex with others
