There is no cure for HIV/AIDS. However, there are treatments and medications that can help to reduce the viral load. This would render the virus inexplicable to others.

Early HIV infection symptoms can include fatigue, fever, night sweats and chills.

Per the CDC, HIV is defined as a virus that attacks the body’s immune system. Untreated HIV can cause acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). HIV can also be transmitted sexually, perinatally, and through the sharing of drug injection equipment. HIV transmission can be reduced by using latex condoms, clean injection equipment, and other means such as latex condoms.
