dear doc, she now doesn't have itching and any problem with rashes..the problem is with back pain and continuous fever..doc gave her medicine but none of them are working..she is taking medicine from last 15days...
How much time generally it takes to recover like normal person or as she is HIV +ve, it will take bit longer..
We showed her to normal physician..do we need to take her to another doc??
