If your exposures were 8,9,10 years ago and you tested in 1997 then you tested well outside the window period. While the tests were not as sensitive then as now, they were quite capable of picking up an infection that would have been 4,5,6 years old at the time you tested.

I would suggest lotion for the dry skin and see your dentist about your oral problems.
