Response from Dr. Frascino


I agree your HIV risk was minimal at best. Your "symptoms" are not consistent with or worrisome for HIV disease.

Regarding signs and symptoms related to primary HIV infection, fever is very common, occurring in 96% of cases.

As always, if you are worried or feel you have placed yourself at risk for HIV, testing is always an option for you.

Stay safe. Stay well. (Yes, I do believe you are indeed well.)
