Swollen lymph nodes under jaw
Jul 10, 2016

Will lymph nodes go down after the start of hiv mediation?

Response from Dr. Henry

There are numerous potential causes of lymph swelling in neck besides HIV. After starting effective HIV treatment, lymph nodes sometimes may enlarge due to improved immune function but ultimately often will decrease in size if the swelling was due mostly to HIV infection versus chronic mouth/neck problems such as decayed teeth/gingivitis, chronic throat irritation. KH

Truvada and hight level of libido.
