Do i have to worry about hiv? i am afrid that test in USA are not able to detect Hiv which i might have got from thai CSW?I am in USA.

Your multiple negative HIV tests out to seven months are definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. There is no reason to question the validity of your HIV assays done in the U.S.
Your symptoms, including the sky-high IgE level, itching and dryness, are classic signs and symptoms of eczema. You should see a dermatologist to help you manage your eczema problem.
Stop worrying about HIV and begin WOO-HOOing that you dodged the HIV bullet.
Remember to play safe to stay well, OK?
