Afraid of KS but lack medicare
Aug 7, 2004


Wrote before as afraid of KS but lack medicare or insurance, Now have thrush, painful, throughout mouth, larynx. Have been using Lysterine to not much avail. Partner went to rehab for 28 days so I have no transport. Best advice? Funny, temp runs at 97.2 consistently but night sweats and lack of eating are killers as I am already down 35 pounds.

Response from Dr. Henry

I would urge you to go to the closest public HIV clinic to be assessed. There is good treatment available for thrush but you need to be evaluated by an HIV experienced clinician to come up with a plan to improve your health. KH
