Very worried please answer

May 1, 2013

Hi Shannon,

I am a male from India , I had a high risk encounter in the year 2010, then I got tested in the year 2012 got negative, Now I have a angry rash on my body for 04 weeks and lost around 02 kgs weight,I again got a screening test done for HIV result negative, Do I have to get any special test done, I am diabetic and a smoker please advise


Response from Ms. Southall

Hi If there have been no other exposures since 2010 the results that you received in 2012 were conclusive that you are HIV free. What I would recommend is if the symptoms continue follow up with your health care provider for evaluation. But rest assured it is not HIV.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

please answer for testing question! 3 weeks vs. 3 months
Testing times please reply. Bad anxiety
