Is it possible to treat swollen glands caused by HIV?
| Response from Dr. Henry
The generalized lymphadenopathy that can be seen with HIV infection (due to concentration of virus and immune cells there) often will diminish months after the initiation of effective antiretroviral therapy though the course in variable. There is no other intervention I can recommend to simply shrink enlarged lymph nodes unless there is another infection or disease is present and addressed -thus a good medical evaluation is recommended.
