* This condition is infected boil involving finger .

(1) This is not a symptom of acute HIV .

(2) Treatment suggested

- Soak the finger in lukewarm water 5 minutes each 3 times a day .
- Keep the part clean with antiseptic liquids .
- Continue to apply povidone iodine .

- I recommend to consult your family doctor for another antibiotic molecule instead of mox for
better recovery .
- Addition of anti inflammatory agents such as ibuprofen ( 400 ) mg 3 times a
day after meals with antacids , will help to recover faster .
- Follow up after 2 days regarding the progress .

Hope this will help you for sure .

Wishing you fine recovery .
