Hi, I am really worried about HIV. I got some pimples under my lips in the months of jan,2011,i didn't care and keep continue my shaving after a two months it had been increase a lot in my beard area. Then I consult to a dermatologist he told me that is Molluscum and recommend me to HIV test and Hep. Test. I was shocked. Because i had sex only once in my life in the Feb, 2011 with full protection. By the i went for HIV I, II test (ELISA)in the month of march,2011, I got negative. Then again i went for HIV Western blot test in the month in April,2011 I got negative. The other side my treatment for molluscum has been continuing from month of April. Again in the month of May i go for HIV Elisa test and I got negative. My last HIV Elisa test Negative was June 25, 2011. The reason for worrying:- I read in lot of article that if you have molluscum in beard area and eyelids that's means you are HIV infected. I have molluscum in my beard area as well as in my eyelids. I am under depression about HIV. Kindly suggest me.
