Should I Rest? Donation on the Way

Sep 2, 2007

Hi Doctor Bob, it's me again Melvin. The dude with the Oral encounter with an unknown HIV status guy back in April. I had all flu like symptoms. I had the fever, muscle ache, chronic diarrhea, stiff neck, sore throat, post nasal drip, headache, white tongue, dry mouth, stuffy nosed, canker sores, and more I can't remember. Well, I went to the doctor, he said he thought I had sinusitis, and decided to run an HIV antibodies and RNA PCR test after my 4 month exposure. HIV antibodies Negative, RNA PCR Negative <50 copies, not detectable. Now, I am better after taking sudafed and Avelox medications for my post nasal drip. Should I still be concern about HIV? or should I just let it go???

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Marvin,

Should you be concerned about HIV? Nope.

Should you just let it go? Yep.

Dr. Bob

MedHelp didn't really HELP...please Dr. Bob!
