molluscum
      #213666 - 11/02/06 01:45 PM

I tested neg at 3 months..... and many will say that's all I need, and not to worry. Now, at almost a year after the possible exposure, I have molluscum all over my inner forearms. a dozen or more on my trunk. All over. They are small, barely noticable, but there are dozens of them. I'm depressed, and scared that they will spread to my face. I already have one on my eyelid.
Should I retest? Has anyone else here ever had molluscum like this and been negative?

Yes, pretty paranoid. If it were a few extra colds I could handle it, or tonsilitis, or something else, but these molluscum are.... numerous. And well, yeah, everything I've read about the two says they aren't exclusive to each other (HIV and molluscum) but in cases of people w/ HIV, molluscum is a lot worse.

Odd, no where on this page which discusses the very COMMON skin disease is HIV or AIDS mentioned.

Since you are complaining about this, but don't mention treatment, I suspect that you haven't even seen a doctor to confirm that your self-diagonisis is correct. You should see one, because it seems it won't go away on its own.

Besides the fact this is not specific to HIV, you are HIV-. It's time you learned to accept that fact.
