negative test 12 weeks!

Oct 7, 2009

Hi, I had emailed reagrding my allergies/eosinophilia a couple of weeks ago...I was tested today, 12 weeks after possible exposure with the uni-gold rapid testing and it was negative! Am I totally in the clear? I had so many symptoms, from white spots on my tonsils and even an ulcer in my mouth (maybe from not sleeping well in 12 weeks!)---do these suspicious symptoms warrant further testing or am I definitely negative? I appreciate all of your encouraging words---I will definitely be donating soon!

Response from Dr. Frascino


Your negative 12-week test is conclusive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV testing is warranted. What is warranted is a full-throated, eardrum-rattling, wake-the-neighbors WOOOO-HOOOO! Congratulations on dodging the HIV bullet. Thank you for your donation to The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation. It's warmly appreciated.

Be well. Stay well.

Dr. Bob
