Response from Dr. Frascino
Your repeatedly negative HIV-antibody tests coupled with your undetectable quantitative and qualitative PCR assays out beyond six months are definitive, conclusive, excessive and WOO-HOO-able. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV tests are warranted. Whatever is causing the red spots on your tongue, one thing is absolutely certain: it's not HIV.
