Symptoms of HIV

Symptoms of AIDS are caused by the deterioration of the immune system and the decline of CD4+ T cells, which are the immune system's key infection fighters. As soon as HIV enters the body, it begins to destroy these cells.

Feeling concerned? Some common symptoms include:

●  Diarrhea that lasts for more than a week

●  Dry cough

●  Memory loss, depression and neurological disorders

●  Pneumonia

●  Profound, unexplained fatigue

●  Rapid weight loss

●  Recurring fever or profuse night sweats

●  Red, brown, pink or purplish blotches on or under the skin or inside the mouth, nose or               eyelids

●  Swollen lymph glands in the armpits, groin or neck

●  White spots or unusual blemishes on the tongue, in the mouth, or in the throat
