Republicans in pink jump suits that want to donate

Nov 14, 2009

Dear Doc I hope that subject got your attention. 4 months ago I had a low risk exposure. I waited to get tested over the three month mark and tested negative. Problem is during the window period I received kenalog shots for two spots of alopecia areata on my head. The spots were no larger then a quarter. I recently became ill will flu like syptoms and a canker sore. I am wondering if those kenalog shots could of caused a false negative or if enough time had elapsed where the steroid would have no effect on my test. My test was 16 weeks past the possible exposure and 10.5 weeks past the last injection of kenalog. Please tell me I can woo hoo. There is a donation for concerted effort on the way on behalf of the repubs in pink jump suits.


Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Greg,

Kenalog shots taken 10.5 weeks prior to an HIV-antibody test would not affect the validity of the test results. Your negative HIV test result is definitive, conclusive and WOO-HOO-able.

As for the Republicans in pink jumpsuits, no, silly boy, those are not pink jumpsuits! They are Glenn Beck/Sarah Palin/Rush Limbaugh tea-baggers dressed in real teabags ranting their lunatic nonsense about Obama being a space alien or whatever.

Be well. Stay well. Stay away from the tea-baggers; those folks are seriously whacked.

Dr. Bob

urgent: please tell me if i schopuld take PEP
Please Dr. Bob -- Re-look at my issue one last time -- I missed some information. Lifetime commitment of donations to Foundation.
