Do i have hiv or herpes ?

Mar 16, 2013

I had unprotected sex and 11 months later got hiv tested and got a negative . but i still have some white kind off bubble which i think are herpes what should i do ?

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

Because of your HIV test at 11 months, we know that you didn't get HIV from the unprotected sex you had.

In terms of the white bubbles that you have.. we know they aren't HIV. I'm curious where they are, how long they've lasted, if they burn or itch.

Ultimately, you need to have the bubbles looked at by a medical professional while they're still around. And in the meantime don't pop them!

Hope this helps!
