Hair loss is not a symptom of HIV. Nor is a scratch even remotely considered a risk for contracting HIV no matter the circumstances surrounding it. There are no what ifs with a scratch by nails. That said thanks for making it scientific fact cause you have tested umpteen times in as many months and still prove to be negative.

Hair loss is a sign of stress. And so is swollen lymph nodes. Though I doubt that you actually have swollen lymph nodes. It's probably something else you are mistaking for them. As far as the white tongue again stress can cause this. So can poor hygiene and smoking.


Congrats your negative if you are that concerned about your health go see an actual dr and have them take a look. Rather than waste the people at the clinics time with a proven non exposure risk.

Believe your test results and relax and the rest will subside.

thank u for answering my thread, i forget to mention 1 thing where exacly i got scratch, my skin was broken bcause after three days is when i saw all her fingers on my back and there were very deep, im serious, i saw her hand in her mouth, im sure she was trying to scratch her mouth to get some blood and there was blood on her nails as she was fast to scratch me. that was a very big mistak i made as i was topless and i didnt know much about HIV. the 1st symptoms after 2 months was like things running all over my body from the botom to the top, itchy, no bumps. at 6 months started hair loss easy to break, is also when i did my 1st LABO test result non-reactive and had a finger test every month negtv. at 14 months i went to see a dermatolog who told me that it scabies not hiv as i was over the window period. i started scabies lotions treatment, these bitting sensation are trying to desappear, hair is getting strongr but not growing back yet and no change in my mouth. any sick can be diagnosed by symptoms but why not hiv? there are alots of proof on the net which show the sign of hiv, the CDC have said that hiv dont die in the hair and a broken skin can lead to the infection. Really my symptoms got nothing to do with HIV? what about my tests result maybe are not liable? my inccident happened in DEC 2010, and had labo test twice june 2011 and january 2012 non-reactive and had many finger test under this period all negatives. last month my 15th one i did a finger test negative but the same clinic at the bigining of this april they perform me another blood test recommanded by the doctor and told me that they ll call me, now gng to 3 weeks never get answer yet. really nothing i can worried about hiv?

I'm sorry what part of under no what if situations would you contract HIV from a scratch wasn't I clear on? Oh that's right the part where the 16th test makes all the difference. Whether you realize it or not you are inaccurately reading what you claim is on the CDC website. Any cut that would be at risk for possible (notice I said possible not definite.) infection would be large enough to require stitches.

Let me ask you a question. If you are so sure its HIV how did it slip 15 tests? Why is your skin problems getting better on scabies treatment? And why are you still having symptoms after the initial infection stage? Cause remember the CDC also says (along with the millions of people who actually have it) there are no symptoms of infection for years after the initial infection period.
