nail fungus
      #1394 - 04/02/00 11:57 PM

have many people out there had problems concerning nail fungus
around the nail, not affecting the nail itself? What time does
this usually accure in HIV infection and does this mean that my
amune system is breaking down.

Hi and yes I have had problems with nail fungus I have had to have the nails removed because the fungus overtook the nail. There are treaments but is very hard to get rid of Ive been dealing with it for about 3 years. Ive had hiv for 8 years I am in better health now than when i frst found out. People who dont have HIV get fungus around their nails too it doesnt have to mean thatyour immune system is breaking down. It just means definatly you have a problem with nail fungus. Try not to worry but ask youdoctor if you are too concernd.

I dont think having nail fungus is a symptom of HIV. Alot of people get nail fungus. I have had a recurring problem with fungus on one of my toes (I know its gross) and I am pretty sure I dont have anything.
