Can you tell if a person has aids without doing a blood test?

In brief: Saliva

Today saliva can be tested in the physician's office with an answer in a few minutes; positives must be confirmed by more difficult tests.
Although there are a few characteristic physical signs in advanced HIV infection / aids, none will tell you for certain.
