I had a cough as well that lasted 4 days. In the absence of symptoms, it is the only way to diagnose an STI, for detecting the same. A number of suggestions have been made – including by Luc Montagnier – that AIDS results only if “co-factors” are present in addition to HIV infection.

Transient immunological perturbations  can accompany many viral and tropical infections and so may not only disturb herpes simplex latency but also increase susceptibility to HIV.

Herpes Simplex, also known as cold sores or fever blisters, are painful lesions which usually form on the lips, chin, cheeks, or nostrils. They are now seeking innovative ways to “wake up” HIV from its silent state, while at the same time applying anti-retroviral medications to eradicate the virus completely. Although dual infections in immunocompetent persons are rare, they can still occur, for example, two esophageal infections in immunocompetent persons with HSV and Candida were in literature in 2005, 2007 and 2011 esophagitis herpes is a viral infection of the esophagus caused by herpes simplex virus reported the (HSV).
