Now i am very scared i am thinking that i have got hiv form my stupid act three months befor. Sir pls let me know the changes of hiv from my situation
Response from Ms. Southall
HI HIV can not be transmitted through clothing and your testing so far is a good sign that you are HIV free from this experience. 90 days post exposure will give you conclusive results. The other thing to remember is that HIV is not the only sexually transmitted infection you need to protect yourself from. I would continue following up with your health care provider for evaluation of the rash. Also we do know that someone living with HIV and on treatment with an undetectable viral load decreases their risk of HIV transmission significantly. Your risk of HIV transmission through this experience is extremely low.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
