Hi Doctor I am the same person who wrote about my herpes labialis. I am worried as I am getting recurrent mouth ulcers(small ones) and some erosion on the gums. I am very worried as these seem to be the specific HIV symptoms listed on other sites. Have you come accross other instances of herpes labialis, mouth ulcers, light headedness and 3 month Elisa negative but subsequently a positive Elisa. Your help is highly appreciated and I hope this answer will put my fears to rest.
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Herpes among other viruses can cause mouth ulcers as well. It is unlikely that these ulcers are the result of HIV in you given a negative HIV test at 3 months. MH
