Symptoms after 3 months?

May 26, 2012


I got tested at 4 months but I started noticing these bumps near my jaw line, that might be lymph nodes. I'm not sure. They're red and tender. Not very big though.

I also have a runny nose which may or may not be from allergies. I don't know..

Could I be a late seroconverter?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi There is a small percentage of folks who can seroconvert until 6 months. The number though is very small. Depending no what your exposure was as well. Your lymph nodes and runny could be your allergies. I would say that if your symptoms continue to follow up with your healthcare provider and to be tested again at the 6 month mark. But again I feel it is most likely your allergies.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
