Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My son in law is HIV positive. His HIV PCR count is 46,938. He has been prescribed Tenvir. I want to know can he be ever cured? My daughter is married to him for only three months now and she is also pregnant. I would like to know if there is any medicine or ayurvedic treatment to get him completely cured.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

No, there is no treatment available for HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) and your daughter needs to get tested as she might have caught the infection by sexual intercourse. If your daughter is infected then there is a possibility that shepasses the infectionto her child.

Regards.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
