How to Tell if Your Partner is Infected With HIV But is Hiding it From You

The United States Preventive Services Task Force currently recommends that all Americans between the ages of 15 and 65 be screened for HIV as part of a regular doctor's visit. Therefore testing should be done and whoever tests positive is given immediate treatment. This can help you avoid serious illness.

If you believe you may be infected, due to accidental exposure or a symptom of anxiety, please yourself: Test today. Here are the signs

Unexplained Rash

The rash is the first sign of HIV infection, although it appears in only two out of five newly infected individuals. That said, it has a distinctive appearance and is often described as a musculoskeletal system.

Swollen lymph nodes

Inflamed lymph nodes (also known as lymphadenopathy) are often present in the early stages of infection.

Oral thrush

Also known as oral candidiasis, thrush is a sign of a weakened immune system and can often predict the onset of advanced disease. While it usually appears in the mouth, it can also be present in the throat

Drenching Night Sweat

If you are experiencing night sweats and are not sure what to do, discuss this with your doctor and if you have not already done so, get tested for HIV. Test. It may not be HIV in the end (because other conditions, such as the flu or fever, cause night sweats), but testing can give you peace of mind going forward. It may or may not be a sign of being HIV-positive.
