    I haven't done my viral load test before... I always do cd4 test..... I'm not regular in the clinic..... I run the test every 3months.... my last CD was 610....because of the work I do I don't have time for myself....... I take good care of myself so my cd4 will not drop much... no HIV drugs for now

    Ok.....I will advise u to create time for yourself and don't use work as an excuse,it's only the living that works.Your cd4 isn't bad,may I know why u aren't on any medication please.Keep that area of the wart dry and clean always,wear cotton made undies.Awaiting ur response

    the last time I went to clinic I was told that when the cd4 Is below 500 is when they can start the person on medication...... I was diagnosed 2012 have been going for check ups. sometimes it goes to 800 sometimes it comes down.....i still take virest 400g and declofenac..... when ever I take the drugs it suppresses the pains of the wart.

    Aiit.The pain reliever u are using is ok.if ur cd4 is ok but u are symptomatic,u will need to commence medication,but if its at the high end and no symptoms whatsoever u are likely to be managed without ART medication,anyway make sure u do it as at when due.
