Allergies and HIV
      #186880 - 04/18/06 02:08 PM

I know its allergy season and even thjough I've never had allergies I am wondering if allergies could be a symptom of HIV. I tested negative after a 1 time protected expsoure with a sex worker. I tested negative at 21 and 30 weeks. Any chance this could be a seroconversion symptom??? Or is it plain allergies? I am in the northeast BTW!

Allergies are not a symptom of HIV. Allergies seem to be horrible this year, trust me I know. After testing at 21 and 30 weeks you are fine. Some people start to develop allergies as they get older so just because you did not have them when you younger does not mean you can not have them now. I would discuss getting allergy tested to your doctor.

U could have had an allergic reaction to a medication. Have you been on antibiotics lately? Some antibiotics may cause allergies. Then again spring is upon us and the pollen is everywhere......

Protected sex is just that - protected. You did the right thing by wearing a condom so long as you continue to practice safe sex you have no reason to worry about HIV infection.

You do not seroconvert at 21 or 30 weeks. A 13 week test would have been a relaible indicator of your status. A test at 21 and 30 weeks was a waste of your money and resources.

Allergies are not symptoms of HIV. You do not have HIV.
