Oral white patches: HIV is a viral infection that decreases immunity and presents by having rare unusual infections. Similar infections are seen in diabetes, lupus and other low immunity diseases. Though there is no pain you could have a bacterial infection or a yeast infection, rarely there are tumors in the mouth that appear as patches,or it could be just dehydration/food. Go to doctor,
