Blood results and Symptons
Mar 20, 2002

Dear Doc., if one has certain symptons which he believes are HIV -related, could it show in any blood test apart from HIV test?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Nope. That's like having a rash on your butt and wondering if someone can diagnose it by looking in your nose! The only test to diagnose HIV is an HIV test. The only way to diagnose that rash is to take a look at your butt. That's just the way it is. No ifs, ands, or "butts," so to speak!

Good luck.
