Dear Dr. Ryan,

Many thanks for reading my question, and perhaps apologies for asking what may seem a silly question in light of CDC advice.

Basically I tested negative at nearly 7months post exposure. Happy days!!! However, I then began to suffer nausea on and off for several weeks and also noticed a rash appear on my arm (it disappeared within a few hours).

Having less than no medical knowledge I have now become convinced that I need to retest. In your experience would this consitute grounds for retesting?


Concerned and confused

Response from Mr. Kull

Based on your test, you are not infected with HIV. Don't rely on yourself for making medical diagnoses; rely on your doctor.
