It is estimated that half of men and women who are HIV positive experience night sweats. These are repeated episodes of extreme perspiration that occur in the evenings during sleep.
Night sweats will often soak a person’s nightclothes and bedding. They usually present as a side effect of HIV-related infections and fever rather than from the human immunodeficiency virus itself.
Ulcers in the mouth affect about one third of HIV sufferers, researchers estimate. These lesions have a tendency to be painful recurring sores that make it difficult to eat, drink, and take medications.
Mouth lesions form on the inside of the lips, cheeks, and tongue with HIV because the immune system is compromised. This allows aphthous ulcers and herpes simplex virus sores to develop.
