Brief Answer: viral loads to be checked Detailed Answer: Hello Till date there has been no cure of HIV. The above mentioned drugs are only based on trials. Best treatment is to take good diet and maintain a healthy life style to prevent development of infections, which are common in HIV patients. Please ask them to get their viral load done. Based on viral count anti retro viral drugs can be started in consultation with a physician. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you

Brief Answer: anti retroviral therapy Detailed Answer: Hello Viral load means the number of HIV virus present per ml of blood. Greater the number of virus the more intensive treatment becomes necessary. The established treatment for HIV is called as ART, anti retroviral therapy. This therapy can be initiated in any hospital based on the virus count. She may use germanium. However ciclopirox will be helpful only in skin condition. I would suggest you to get ART initiated for her. Wishing her a good health. thank you
