Aug 3, 2007

hi doctor Bob m from turkey get 2 elisa result at 6 and 6,5 months from posible exposure they negatif I am at 10. months now. have ache at my axilla I afraid it is adenoid doctor said me you must retest tomorrow what do you think please answer

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hey Turkey-Guy,

First of all, your adenoids are not located in your axilla! The adenoids are in the back of your pharynx (mouth) and your axilla is your armpit!

Next, if you tested HIV negative at 6 and 6.5 months after your possible exposure, you are conclusively and definitively HIV negative! You do not need another HIV test. However, you may well need a new, more competent, physician!

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
