This is the earliest stage of HIV infection – when the virus has just gained access into your body and your immune system has begun to react. This phase may be accompanied by symptoms that signal the onset of infection, however, many people have no symptoms whatsoever. When symptoms are present in this stage, they may be characterized by a flu-like illness and/or a mononucleosis-like infection. Some infected persons describe a severe sore throat that refuses to clear up. Some infected individuals develop a skin rash (red spots, plaques etc.). These symptoms typically resolve with time (typically days to weeks).
