Am i doomed?

Nov 30, 2002

I had unprotected sex with a sex worker with only a few seconds of penetration, without ejectculation. But, a year later i discovered i had white rough small patch on the inner lateral side of my tongue. Is this OHL? Some of the patch can be scraped off but comes back another day or sometimes after a meal. I am a regular coffee and tea drinker and i had coated tongue. Am i infected?

Response from Mr. Kull

I can't diagnose symptoms for you. You must see a medical professional to have symptoms evaluated.

The only way to determine your HIV status is to have an antibody test three or more months after exposure. This can help to remove doubts.
