noticeable red dots
Oct 22, 2002

hello dr. frascino, i hope you remember me who asked about late conversion. i tested out to 7 month for hiv antibodies which was negative.

today i noticed that i have some scattered noticeable red dots on the roof of my mouth. will these red dots lead to oral thrush? thank you.

btw, i've made some donations to your foundation....anyways....that's not the matter.....PLEASE RESPOND!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Response from Dr. Frascino


You tested negative out to 7 months, remember? Take the flashlight out of your mouth. The red dots are not going to lead to oral thrush. Maybe the red dots are irritation from you poking around in there looking for an illness that you can't possibly have! Next time you feel the urge to search for symptoms, just click you ruby slippers 3 times and say, "I'm negative, I'm negative, I'm negative."

Thanks for the donations! Stay well.

Dr. Bob
