lymph nodes..need an answer please
Dec 17, 2002
I really need an answer. I got a cold six months ago and another one now. Both times I had swollen lymph nodes involved. They went away in less then three weeks with antibiotics. I don't have any fevers or aches, just sneezing and minor cold symtoms, but the lymph nodes in the neck on the right side are swollen. I had unprotected sex with one partner three year ago, had no symptoms of flu/fever then. Could my current syptoms be HIV??

The best way to determine your HIV status is to have an HIV antibody test three or more months after exposure. Colds are not indicative of HIV infection.
Any symptoms that persist should be checked out by a doctor.
