can a flu, common cold, sore throat mislead hiv test?
Dec 19, 2003
is it possible that a flu, common cold, and sore throat throw off an hiv test? If a person had all aboce within 70 days prior to an HIV test, can it be mislead? also how about chicken pox and phumonia within 4 years prior to an hiv test?..thanks
Response from Dr. Frascino
Nope! Common colds, flues, sore throats, or past bouts of chicken pox and "phumonia" (or pneumonia either) will not affect (or mislead) an HIV test. So roll up that sleeve, honey! Good luck.
