I had rinsed my baby from that entonce 4 years began to lose weight, he inflamed throat, had a fever and rashes on their chest out ... . the eyes of my baby, my partner's and mine we have blue-gray, I am referring to the sclera, the whites of our eyes is gray with blue, that is very rare because we never had before that color of sclera. my partner also introduce changes. she lost weight. besides that,

Why do I still feel bad? please help I have fear for my son and family ... thanks

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

To be honest, I'm having trouble following all of your story. But the main thing is you got a HIV test three months after your last exposure. The result was negative, so you are negative and can not give HIV to your family since you don't have it. I'd consider following up with a doctor to get down to the real cause of how you're feeling!

Consider that it may be your stress and anxiety that are making you feel unwell. Also, it may be that because of that stress anytime something feels different with your family you immediately think it must be something serious when it may not be.

Hope this helps!
