Customer Question
An auntie of mine...

An auntie of mine tested HIV positive and so I asked her what signs she saw. She mentioned white patches in the inner cheeks and lower lip. Ever since I started reading about it, weeks afterwards I got scared and began feeling I might have had an exposure. All of a sudden I saw my tongue being white and inner cheeks too and has been so since then. Could this mean I am positive please??

Doctor's Assistant: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this?

I went to a pharmacy and was given nystatin but saw no changes

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I tested negative about 9 months before all this started.

Hello and welcome to justanswer,I shall be consulting you today

These are not specific signs of HIV.HIV in its early stages may not have any signs or symptoms.

If you had a possible exposure to HIV the best way to deal with this is to simply have an HIV blood test.

There are no specific signs of HIV it can only be tested by means of blood tests.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
