Will be donating $10

Aug 25, 2011

I know it's a small amount, but at least it is something. Anyway, can kidney disease delay antibodies from being formed? I always feel like something is crawling in my skin and I have really bad burning sensations. Tested negative at 5 months for hiv, hep and herpes. what could cause this entire burning/prickling sensation of my body?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Kidney disease would not delay antibody formation or alter HIV test results.

I can't diagnose the cause of your burning sensations. Consult a dermatologist if symptoms persist. One possible cause is anxiety.

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

Be well.
