The treatment of spondyloarthropathy in HIV-infected patients is similar to that for non-HIV infected patients. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as indomethacin (75 to 150 mg per day), can be used initially for the joint symptoms, but results have been disappointing. There are few data on second-line agents such as gold, methotrexate, and azathioprine. There are reports that phenylbutazone (100 mg 3 times per day) is an effective drug for this arthritis, and neutropenia has not been a problem even in patients receiving AZT concurrently.
I found your comment to be very Interesting because I had the same experience but in different way, I was in a business trip to Germany last year and ate pork accidentally it was a big portion after only 24 hrs I started to feel pain and soft lump perianl area, at that time I was in Paris heading back home , next morning when It was flight time the pain was immense I couldn’t even set inside the cap, it worsened to the max during the flight , and finally erupts and the puss came out , what a relief! But it’s been more than a year now I’m diagnosed with peri anal fistula and it’s still oozing. Hoping to find a solution soon .
