Is there a relationship between AIDS and tongue pain?

The most common oral problem of AIDS is secondary candidiasis infection, which often appears early and is a sign of immune deficiency, manifested by mucosal congestion and erosion, atrophy of the dorsal papillae of the tongue, abnormal or loss of conscious taste, oral dryness, and burning mucosal pain. If you have high-risk behaviors for HIV and the above oral symptoms, it is recommended that you go to your local CDC or hospital as soon as possible.
