Medicine and what if your already taking it? please answer
Dec 1, 2000

I heard taking Doxocycline can't cure but will almost get rid of gohnerrea and also HIV, I am currently taking it because I have Lyme Disease. I'll be on it for about 3 months. Will taking this reduce the risk of me getting any diseases as long as my boyfriend doesnt cum in my mouth. Or if I have HIV will this help it?

Response from Dr. Reznik

I believe you are referring to Doxycycline, which is an antibiotic and would have no efficacy against HIV disease and would not prevent transmission of HIV.


Is Angular Cheilitis enough reason to worry?
