folliculitis and bump in throat??
      #178957 - 03/08/06 06:53 PM

Is folliculitis common in early HIV (2-3 months after infection?) i have several infected follicles that itch and burn on my stomach.... I've had swollen nodes for awhile now (felt by a doctor) and a sore throat for over a month, now with a bump (not a canker sore) on my soft pallate, along with red sore patches on my gums. I'm going to get tested next week, but wanted to know if folliculitis/ oral bumps are common. Please help me, I am terrified.

hi

regards from india

Symptoms should not be used as a tool to diagnose your status.Folliculitis is a common condition, it is also experienced by HIV-negative individuals.

If you feel worried you may have put yourself at risk, you may want to test at 12 weeks post exposure.

Goodluck

Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

Hello,

I have folliculities on both of my upper arms, my thighs, and recently my chest. I have a soar throat with phelgm that lasted for foing on two months. My last at risk exposure was on October 2006. I had not placed my self at risk since then. I tested with ElISA HIV test on August 2008 (2 times), October 2010, February 2011 (2 Times) and June 2011. ALL came back NEGATIVE. I am way past the window period but still feel so much fear, obsession, and irrational beliefs. But these symptoms are real to me. I think back to HIV again. I am trying to accept my Negative results but these symptoms just won'st go away.

Am I serconverting at this time? Did my body did not develop enought HIV antibodies during all 6 Negative Tests? I don't know what to do. I am thinking about getting tested today, but so scared to see the results!

Well good luck.
