I was confused now (please) (donate)

Jul 21, 2011

I've been reading a lot of questions related to betamethasone. Hello Dr. Bob, now my stress went up, I study every day your site, and read these days people talking about steroids. After my accident, I made use of an ointment containing corticosteroids (betamethasone dipropionate 0.64) by one or two times a day in the penis. I used for about 12 months or a little more , do not me remember , sometimes also was a day or more without using. The use of this ointment can have interfered with my exams? Or have interfered in the window? I have read other similar questions, I confess I'm a little confused .And my state of anxiety that I now realized more than a fourth-generation CMIA, the 476 days , negative (0.11) thanks to God. Thank you.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Your use of betamethasone ointment will not affect your HIV test results. See link below.

Stop worrying and start WOO-HOO-ing!

Be well.

Dr. Bob
