Lupus and AIDS are unrelated illnesses, except for the fact that they have a lot of the same symptoms. Lupus is a chronic disease that can cause inflammation and pain in any part of your body. It is an autoimmune disease, which indicates that your immune system, the body’s system that usually fights infections, attacks healthy tissues instead.

Systematic lupus is the most common form of lupus. HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus, and it is the virus that causes AIDS. The lowered immune system makes it difficult to battle off any sort of illness. HIV can be spread through sexual contact and blood. In HIV or AIDS, the immune system is underactive. With lupus, the system is overactive. Also, with lupus, there would be a butterfly rash on your face.
