Pls Ansr me this tym... My mind is gone wild

Nov 25, 2012

Hi Dr,

I'm a 20years old male. last July 15 i had a protected vaginal intercourse n protected oral intercourse wt a sex worker. i didnt know her HIV status.

For 2 weeks i lived is huge stress n anxiety. in that time i started to have a Rash (Exzema), Diarrhea, nausea, no fever, no headache.. n also i got an ECG n the Dr said it has a minor disoder...

end of the two weeks.. all the symptoms hv fade out except rash... it still there..

I hv allergies since ma childhood...

My only Question is Do i hav a risk of HIV???

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there- Condom use during sex is a very effective way to prevent HIV infection so I would say your risk is low. Since this happened back in July, testing now would be conclusive so I would say test so that your anxiety can be quelled. Take care, LHW
