Late, usually: Usually a sign of late infection, i.e. overt AIDS, usually several years after catching HIV. It can occur in early HIV, but usually does not.

If sore throat was HIV sign would it ever be by itself or always be accompanied by a fever&rash? Also have slight cough/no thrush/no fever/no rash.?

Listen buddy: If you have to ask, it's time to get tested for HIV. Every guy your age and older should probably get a quick HIV screen yearly. I'm betting, though, that the white stuff on your tongue is crud that will come off with a swipe of a piece of taut dental floss. If it hurts and/or just won't come off, get seen. Love safely, keep avoiding IV drugs, and get with your physician for an answer. ...Read more

The weaker the immunity, the more severe the infection. ...Read more
