Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello, Lopez.

". . . Apotjous ulcers in my mout. . ."??? Hmm. Something might have gotten lost in the Google translator there. But no matter, because your repeatedly negative HIV tests out to 11 months are definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how.

I can't diagnose the cause of your and your girlfriend's symptoms over the Internet; however, what I can do with great certainty is advise that based on your last HIV test result you are HIV negative.

I would suggest you and your girlfriend see your doctors for an evaluation of any bothersome or persistent symptoms. Some of your symptoms, Lopez, may be due to guilt and/or anxiety.

Thanks for your support of The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation (

Be well.

Dr. Bob
