People with different kind of sicknesses has what leads to it. That’s the more reason i want to know the symptoms or signs to know an hiv infected person?
i dont think there’s way to tell. just make sure you always wear a condom.
Was this answer helpful?
There is no clear cut way to tell..people with HIV show many different types of symptoms, or none at all. A blood test is the only way to ever know.
Most people who have HIV have no symptoms for several years. Some people have flu symptoms, but it is impossible to distinguish between flu symptoms caused by HIV infection and flu symptoms caused by actual flu.
You can not tell just by looking at someone whether or not they are infected, and even without symptoms, you CAN pass the virus to other people.
HIV can NOT be diagnosed by symptoms. The ONLY way to find out if you have HIV is to get an HIV test. More than 98% of people who have HIV would test positive within 3 months, but in very rare cases, it could take up to 6 months for someone to test positive.
In very late stages, someone who has HIV may become ill easily, and have difficulty fighting off infections that would not be a problem for someone whose immune system is relatively healthy. HIV itself does not kill. These patients can die from the infections they get as a result of a severely damaged immune system.
There is no cure for HIV, the virus that can lead to AIDS, but medications can help many people who have HIV live healthier, longer.
