PostNasal Drip Symptoms
Mar 7, 2001

I got a cold in early January and was clearing my throat for 4 or 5 weeks and then I got sick again and am still clearing my throat. It has been about 2 months now. Probably postnasal drip. Does HIV lengthen the symptoms of a post nasal drip. Could this be a result of HIV

Response from Dr. Boyle

Persistent symptoms such as you are descibing may indicate that you have a sinusitis, which is an infection of the nasal sinuses, or another chronic infection. You should see your doctor for an evaluation. Patients with HIV may have more problems with sinusitis than uninfected patients. BB
