Swiss Stud.Why am I still worried?

Mar 17, 2007

Doc, I am just soo paranoid about that rash even with 4 negative tests out to 4 months, should I be worried about undetectable antibodies or late seroconversion? I am a very healthy kid. Also, if that rash was from ARS, wouldn't antibodies have developed already when it occured? Thanks are helping me get through the toughest time of my life. I love you from the bottem of my heart.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Swiss Stud,

Why am you still worried???? Excellent question!!!!!

Should you be worried about late seroconversion? No.

Would anti-HIV antibodies have developed by the four-month mark? Yes.

Are you "just soo paranoid . . . ?" Absofrickinlutely.

Swiss Stud, I can assure you no matter how many times you submit these same worried-well questions or call the office, our opinion on your risk and definitive negative status is not going to change. As I have offered in the past, if you are worried about physical symptoms or the validity of the HIV tests you have taken, you can call the office for an appointment (650-917-1357). There really isn't much more I can offer you via cyberspace.

Be well!

Dr. Bob
