yes home based tests are really accurate. A tattoo done properly
woulden't warent a hiv test, and if you have lesions already you beter go see youre Dr. to get tested. Lesions are a sign of AIDS
progression, and later signs of progression. It would be advisable to have youre Dr. look at what you think are lesions and tell him youre views on why you are scared. An open relationship with youre Dr. will be helpful later on if you are positive. And youre Dr. will apreciate you more if he thinks you trust him.
