Exposure of human body to HIV virus and then delay in the treatment due to any reason can lead to the HIV positive results thus leading to the development of AIDS. The early stages of HIV symptoms are combination of common symptoms like headache, regular fever, sore throat, body ache, painful and bleeding gums, swelling in the lymph nodes, rashes, night sweats, weight loss, mouth ulcers etc. it is not necessary that a person who is HIV positive will have all these symptoms. Only two or three symptoms can be there and mostly such symptoms are mistaken for cold, flu or any other curable viral infection. When this deadly virus enters human body and then crosses the blood barrier, the blood cells mainly the defense cells are affected and the formation of new defense cells and the immune system is damaged leading to the collapse of defense mechanism of body. Thus, the body becomes prone to various infections due to the collapse of immune system and the life span is reduced. When a person becomes HIV positive, the treatment and the course of medicines are continued for life to provide a system to that enables the body to survive the conditions and the surrounding or attacked infections.
