Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

If your son was tested negative as a child (and assuming there's been no other risks), then he does not need any additional testing.

Everyone gets a cold or diarrhea from time to time; worry not. It's not an indication of him having HIV.

Be well, BY
