Infections & CD4 count
Sep 1, 2008
Hello Doctor Henry,
Do viral or baterial infections, or allergy problems reduce a HIV+ persons CD4 cell count?
Response from Dr. Henry
Some data suggests that a wide range of infections can variably temporarily reduce the CD4 count. I haven't observed or seen much data linking allergy problems (like seasonal hay fever) to low CD4 counts. KH
