Dear Dr bob,
I am a huge fan and I congratulate you on all your hard work and help that you provide on this website. I have a quick question that I hope you may be able to help me with. I have recently taken an hiv test at the 3 month mark the result of which was negative. During the time of the test I was applying a solution named DNCB 0.5% in acetone to a wart I have on my foot. The application of DNCB (Dinitrochlorobenzene) was in very small quantities (applied once with a cotton bud to the wart area, daily). Could this treatment of DNCB have caused an incorrect HIV result and would you suggest I re take another HIV test?
All the very best
Response from Dr. Frascino
The short answer is no.
The longer answer is hell no. WOO-HOO!!!!
