Is Folliculitis a symptom of early HIV infection?

Not that I'm aware of. I did have to look around to even find out what Folliculitis is. I looked first here on the body and there don't seem to be any posts talking abou tit, looking at the web I found this site

Which talked about it as being a yeast type condition.

The biggest thing to remember about any possible symptom that you might have going on is, there are NO symptoms that are exclusive to HIV. EVERY symtom that you can possibly think of that some people experience have thousands of other things that they can relate to.

I hope that helps.

Folliculitis is something everyone gets. A doctor will only prescribe antibiotics which is over kill in my opionion. i have had it and refused the antibiotics and guess what? It when away by itself. Your body can heal itself!
