The root of the problem was the use of infected needles during tattooing, according to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital, who has treated two patients who have tested positive for HIV in the last two months.The office of the chief medical officer (CMO), Varanasi, has reported that the two patients receiving treatment at the district hospital have claimed that they neither received a blood transfusion nor had any unprotected sexual conduct but that they were positive after having tattoos done on themselves.Jayant, a twenty-year-old citizen of the Baragaon district, got his hand tattooed during a festival held in the town.His health began to deteriorate after a few months.

He didn't get much relief after all the therapy, so doctors scanned him for HIV.He was discovered to have been HIV positive after an investigation.Jayant was, however, unsure if the study was correct.He told the doctor that he was not married yet, and that he had no intimate relationship with anyone, and that he never needed a blood transfusion.

The young woman, Saifali (name changed), from Nagwan city was the subject of something similar.She was tattooed by a hawker.Her health began to worsen after a few days.After a pathological examination, she was found to be HIV positive.

d.c.o., a senior doctor of antiretroviral therapy (ART) center is located.Dr. Preeti Agarwal of Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital said the two had no idea what the main cause of HIV infection was.They neither had unprotected sex nor were they infected with viruses.

The root cause of the problem, she said, is tattooing with infected needles.The needle with which the tattoo is made isn't even as efficient.After getting a tattoo, the needle should normally be stripped off.Tattoo-makers earn more by using the same needle as human beings.

They don't even know whether the tattoo-maker has fitted a new needle in the machine.In such a situation, if an HIV-infected individual is tattooed with that needle, there is a hazard of others being infected with HIV by using the same needle, she said.Before getting a tattoo, Dr. Agarwal said that it should be taken with caution.A tattoo applied at a fair or from a stall can be costly in order to save money.

People who have recently had tattoos should have their HIV tested so they can begin treatment right away, she said.
