I think of the immune system as an army, & they r just itching to go to war- if there's a confused order somewhere instead of attacking germs they attack U! A rheumatologist can help. Treatment consists of slowing down that army-putting them back in the barracks. HIV/AIDS may actually help if immune sys weak ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am HIV positive. I have a recurring white penile discharge how can I make it go away permanently & what’s the cause after it was treated last month?
Urethritis: You need to find out what it is. The first step is a urine test for gonorrhea and chlamydia naat. If either comes back positive, you need to be treated.

It's possible but...: If you're HIV+, and want to have a child, it is much more possible these days. However, I would strongly recommend that you speak with your medical provider about how to do this. It depends on who is HIV+ (female or male or both). There are ways to do this safely, so that the chance of transmitting HIV to the child is reduced. Would recommend seeing an HIV specialist that can discuss this further. ...Read more
CD4 count around 200: Hiv destroys cd4 cells (specific type of white blood cell that plays a role in helping to fight diseases). The immune system weakens as more cd4 cells are killed. Hiv infection can exist for years before it progresses to aids. People with HIV progress to aids when their cd4 counts fall below 200 or they experience an aids-defining illness (infection/malignancy like pneumocystis or lymphoma). ...Read more
