Irritation on throat and chest

Sep 21, 2009

Hi i had a serve cold and after taking anti biotics it went away. It left me with an irritation on my throat and chest. Please advice on what to do. I am on truvada and stocrin.

Response from Dr. Henry

You should discuss with your HIV provider to assess whether your continued throat/chest complaints would be expected after a treated bad cold or could there be a persistent more serious problem that warrants further evaluation (knowing your past medical history and CD4 count would help determine how to approach your continued symptoms).
