HIV is a disease that is rapidly affecting a lot of people. Every student is being taught about HIV since 5th Grade. They are taught about how it spreads and its effects. The Government has also undertaken several steps and preventive measures to restrict this infection from spreading. Unfortunately, HIV is still spreading rapidly. The number of cases of HIV is increasing day by day. The worst part is that until now there is no cure for HIV. Even though a complete cure for HIV is impossible, but treatment helps the patient to live longer if it is detected in its early stages. 90% of the people who get infected by HIV experiences flu-like symptoms, while some patients do not show any symptoms for decades. It is often too late by the time they know that they have HIV. Even though the appearance of any of these symptoms doesn’t always mean HIV, one can never take a chance.
Take a look at these symptoms.
1. Constantly Tired
Fatigue and fever are the most common signs of HIV. Fatigue and fever do not always mean that it is HIV. However, if you are always tired or get a sore throat, swollen lymph organ or joint weaknesses after fatigue and fever, then there is a high likelihood of HIV
2. Infections Caused By Candida Yeast
Candida Yeast is a common fungus. It often appears in the mouth and makes it extremely hard to swallow food and water. If you get these constantly, you should be worried.
3. Skin Rashes
One of the primary effects of HIV is that it makes our immune system ineffective. This leads to skin allergy and rashes, followed by itching and burning. Be on the lookout for those.
4. Vomiting And Diarrhea
Studies show that nearly 40% people who get infected with HIV will have short-term nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. Weight loss and tiredness are also commonly seen in a human having HIV.
5. Dry Cough
This one is easily the most dangerous symptom caused by HIV. It can also be easily mistaken as an allergy. If you also have tiredness, fever, and weight loss, then you should be worried of being infected by HIV.
