6 Signs of HIV to Know


Unexplained rash, swollen lymph nodes, oral thrush, night sweats, and sudden and unexplained weight loss are all possible signs of HIV. Having a sexually transmitted infection (STI) isn't a physical sign of HIV, but it does indicate a greater risk of having HIV as well.

The signs or symptoms of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) are not always obvious, though. And in fact, most people who have HIV do not exhibit any of them. Signs of HIV can also depend on whether a person is in the new (acute) or persistent (chronic) stage of infection.

Many people who are HIV-positive do not know they have the virus. The only way to find out for sure is to get tested.

There are some clues that could mean you have HIV, especially if you're at risk:

-An unexplained rash with flu-like symptoms
-Swollen lymph nodes
-Oral thrush
-Drenching night sweats
-Unexplained weight loss of 10% or more
-Having another sexually transmitted infection (STI)

Never assume that not having symptoms is the same thing as not having HIV. Not feeling sick does not mean that the virus is "mild" or that your immune system is not being harmed by it. If you are at risk of HIV, it's important to get tested and treated.
