Confused about resutls and things happening.....
Jan 16, 2009

Hey Doc,

I love your enthusiasm :) makes one feel so good :)

I am 28 year old from Mumbai, India. On the 1st of September 2008, I visited a commercial sex worker for the first and last time. I didn't kiss her. She put a condom on my penis and blew me. Then she put another condom on the existing one and we have vaginal intercourse. After the act I filled the condom (one inside the other) with water and found it intact.

1.The next day after 24 hours I had a boil on my penis. After a another day there was another one. I applied clotrimazole oral thrush liquid and they disappeared.I dont know if it were herpes?

2. Exactly after 7 days I developed a sore throat and very mild fever that lasted for 10 days.

3. On the 8th of September when I got sore throat, I freaked out and got a PCR DNA done as advised by my general physician. Came Negative.

3. I got a rapid antibody test at 5 weeks and came negative

4. Another Elisa at 8 weeks---negative

5. On the 11th of November, I notice, white thing on the lateral portion of my tongue that's exactly like Oral Hairy Leukopekia. It doesn't come off even if I scrape it.

6. I get a PCR done again. This time its the viral load RNA one. I also get a CD4/CD8 count done. I get a viral load of <50 and my CD4 count is 568.

7. I get an ELISA antibody test on 12th December 2008(3 months and 12 days) and its Negative !

8. My OHL is still there on my tongue all throughout

9. I feel fatigued during the day and my eyes also get red.

7. On the 11th of Jan 2009 I got some 40-50 red dots on my right arm. They went away in 3 days.

8. I keep getting pain in the foot of both my legs.


1. Will the virus have less than 50 copies after 2 months and 12 days of exposure?

2. Your comments on the whole episode.
