Feb 6, 2011

Dear Dr Fascino before anything just let me thank you ...and plz tell me how can i offer any help for your site or your organization ..and plz tell me a No. of account bank transfer i can do .

I had my HIV ag-ab negative tests in 3 , 7 months and 1 year and three months ...but i have still tonsillitis for more than 1 month no fever ,also i still have cotton white tongue even if i take vitamin B12 for 3 months as Dr told me ...before i had not never tonsillitis ..that made me not trust the negative tests ag-ab

Should i have a standard Elisa Ab test ? there's any sexual disease that make the tonsillitis ? is hiv test ag/ab good one ?

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Egyptian Guy in Hell,

Your three negative HIV-antibody/antigen (HIV Ag/Ab) tests out to one year and three months are definitive, conclusive and WOO-HOO-able. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV tests are warranted. (Yes, HIV Ag/Ab is a very good HIV-screening test.)

Please note the vast, vast majority of cases of tonsillitis have absolutely nothing to do with HIV/AIDS. I would suggest you see an ENT (ear, nose, throat) specialist for further evaluation and treatment. Most cases of chronic tonsillitis are caused by a persistent bacterial infection.
