HIV/Aids in children

Is there anyway one can see symptoms of HIV/Aids in children (between ages 6 and 12), without them having to go for a test. I realise that many symptoms can be related to other things such as undernourishment eg bleeding gums, but is there anything else specific to aids or a certain combinationg of symptoms that could point towards aids?

Dee, a common symptom is chronic or repeated diarrhoea. The best would still be to just send them for a test as cancer, diabetes and other serious diseases might cause the exact same symptoms than AIDS in children. Good luck.
