Could i be HIV positive if the TEST line appears faint?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi On test there are two lines, once C for control and one t for testing. You want to have a line in the C showing the test was done correctly and any type of line in the t area shows a preliminary positive test result. No matter how faint or strong the line is, if there is a line you need to have the blood work done for the confirmation.

Be well, Shannon
