Hi, most common cause for white patches is candidiasis. It is usually caused by candida albicnas, which is a fungal infection. The white patches have a cottage cheese appearance. They can occur as a consequence to throat infection. To confirm the presence of HIV infection, the most specific test would be testing for its antibodies with an ELISA test which is a screening test which looks for antibodies in the blood. The antibodies are usually produced within 1-3 months of the infection. Your need to consult your doctor for proper assessment. In the meantime you can try warm salt water gargles and betadine mouthwashes. Regards.
