Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Franky,

Your HIV risk is negligible at best. I agree with your doctors: your symptoms are not worrisome for or suggestive of HIV infection. Solely due to your anxiety and worry, I would suggest you get a single HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark to put these residual (and unwarranted) concerns permanently to rest. I'm quite confident your definitive HIV test will be negative.

Thank you for your donation to the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation ( Your generosity in helping others who are in desperate need is warmly appreciated. In return, I'm sending you my good-luck/good-health karma that your definitive three-month HIV test is negative.

Good luck. Be well!

Dr. Bob

I went and got tested
Thanks for the gift
