Symptoms of untreated HIV
- First weeks: he/she may get symptoms resembling the flu, a rash or swollen lymph nodes.
- Then follows a period without symptoms.
- After some time (this can be 2 years or more) he/she may get new complaints and/or various new symptoms.
- HIV attacks the immune system. Without treatment, someone with HIV will get AIDS after several years. The body’s immune system is so weak that the body will be prone to many other infections. These infections may lead to death.
