Dr. Martin Raff answered:

What are symptoms and signs of AIDS 1-6 months after getting HIV?

May be none

Aids
Symptoms may be totally non-existent for years after getting HIV infected, because most are a result of prolonged progressive damage to the immune system. Signs are predominantly laboratory data, showing decrease in CD4 counts, increased viral loads, etc. There may be physical findings of enlarged lymph nodes or spleen but these are quite variable.

What are the symptoms of coinfection of hiv and hepatits after six months without medication...please I am anxious to know ?

Hepatitis & HIV

Hiv
You know hepatitis is an infection of the liver. Oftentimes, you lose your appetite, feel weak and fatigued, may have nausea and vomiting and fever and your skin color will turn yellow (as well as the whites of the eye). You will need to have blood work done and possible hospitalization.

6 months ago i got head butt & had a cut by a guy I later heard he tested + for HIV, I didnt show any symptoms. What do u think?

Not likely

Incision
Unless the guy who head butted you had an open cut and this touched on the cut you experienced the chance of transmittal of HIV is near zero. On the other hand it never hurts to get tested. Do not think this is a situation calling for prophylactic antivirals.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

I had some symptoms like lymph nods or a kind of herpes on my mouth , my hiv test was negativ after more than 6 month of the risk but i am afraid?

HIV negative

Hiv
Without knowing exactly what tests were run it is difficult to say for certain, but the overwhelming chance is that you are HIV negative. The lesson is obvious. Only protected sex and only with individuals you "know" well. You can never be sure of honesty when it comes to sex, money, politics and life. Appreciate your concern but think you can relax. Be well.

Dr. Daniel Lee answered:

Need help. Is 10 months too early to see these symptoms of hiv?

Depends...

Human_immunodeficiency_virus
The answer depends.... If you are talking about symptoms of acute HIV, these may occur within 2 to 4 weeks of infection and may last a week. However, not everyone gets the symptoms of acute HIV. If you are talking about symptoms of HIV associated with later more advanced disease, then usually this may take a few years before seeing symptoms like weight loss, fevers, night sweats.

Can hiv symptoms start showing after three months since exposure?

No

Hiv
Usually, HIV presents with a tonsillitis presentation about 4 weeks after initial exposure (fever, sore throat, body aches, lymph node enlargement) but then it subsides to emerge as AIDS years ago, although, cases of less latency (1-2 years) have been described. At 3 months, infected patients don't normally have any symptoms.

When (I mean how many years/months after) HIV viruses will show symptoms in human body?

HIV infection

Human_immunodeficiency_virus
The acute infection stage of HIV usually begins to be widespread at about fourteen days after exposure. Most people do not experience any symptoms during this phase. But, those that do report a severe flu-like illness. Untreated, in a man, the average length of infection to death is eleven years.But, we do not need to worry about that. With treatment today, the length of life is 53 plus years.

It is still possible. Would see an infectious disease doctor who might order some other tests at this point that might clarify the situation
