Anxiety? HIV?!
      #266567 - 09/14/12 04:36 PM

To who may read my post,

i had unprotected sex one time more then one month ago and i am currently having a Viral Infection. Every day since I got this infection, i started to get little pin pricks all over my body. It is from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet, with the most annoying being on my eyelids, on my earlobes, on my face, down my entire body including between fingers and toes. The itch lasts for a few seconds and goes away. i am currently taking Fenistil for itching and it is fading little by little.
i thought of HIV..! but looking through the list of acute symptoms of HIV i have no rash, very little fever ,that went away after taking paracetamol pills, got one swallen gland and chest infection for less then 24 hours but i cannot explain the all over body itching..i do know that Viral infection trigger such an itching but anyone got a similar case?? any advice!?

any advice!?

you need to test. everytime you have unprotected sex you put yourself at risk for HIV and other STDs. You need to test 3 months after your last exposure. It does not matter if you have symptoms or not. Some people get infected without symptoms at all.
