A Sore Throat
A lot of people experience flu-like symptoms within the first few weeks of contracting HIV. It is a natural physical response to the human immunodeficiency virus. One such symptom is a sore throat.
Soreness of the throat commonly occurs with coughing in those who have the virus. A severe, dry cough that doesn’t resolve (even with medications) is a typical symptom in very ill HIV sufferers.
Swollen Lymph Nodes
Swollen lymph nodes is another early symptom of HIV. It can be a sign that you have contracted the immunodeficiency virus, especially if you have an active sex life and do not practice safe sex.
Lymph nodes, which contain immune cells that help to fight infection, can be found in the neck, groin, armpits, and other areas of the body. They have a diameter of approximately two centimeters.
