hi

regards from india

May god help you, trust me consider getting professional mental help.

And for your information, a 12 week test is accurate for all exposures.

Goodluck

Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

Love Ravi

bura what is bcg, never heard of that. also did the doctor tell you ,that you were hiv positvie, why would he think you are. I really think you need to calm down and think about this without fear. 3 months is definite except in extremely rare case of immune problems ,which you would know almost all your life. please stay in touch. love and peace.

i am not sure the full name for BCG, but it is a vaccination when we take when we are 12 years old. By now, that scar would have been healed with a slight scar. But now, there is something like that on my arm near to that vaccination and it if fresh.Soft and tender, red in color. i can take a picture of it and send the file to you guys.not a problem!! all i need is to talk to you guys!!

people who are born with screwed up immune systems, you would know it and have problems most of your life . people who are getting chemo, but here is something to think about even people who are very sick with aids and have less than 200 tcells will register positve on an elisa test. i think you are in a panic state and not thinking straight, i am sure the doctor is just try ing to placate you. i sent you my email address and would like to see that pic of your rash, most of time the rash is on the trunk not the arms. love and peace
