Worried if I have HIV new
      #275059 - 01/27/14 09:08 AM

I had unprotected sex on 28th Nov and had started getting mild rash on my arms by 6 weeks of that exposure. Got an ELISA test done then with negative results. But the rash continued and now I have it on arms, legs, neck, back and penis too. Rash is not like spread all over the body and it is very itchy sometimes but always itchy on penis. I have a mild sore throat as it is common to me and I have no fever or any other ARS symptoms. Worried if I have contracted HIV.

Please advise if I have to take a test again?

How could you test at 6 weeks when you are only 4 weeks from exposure????

I would suggest you wait until 6 weeks and then get a test, if that is negative then you most likely will test negative at 3 months, which is conclusive.

As far as your rash, they are a dime a dozen. Anything can cause them.

It's unlikely your test result will change when you go for a conclusive test at 3 months.

Just like that, thought somebody else might have a view about it. No issues though. Thank you again.

I had a Tridot test on last Thursday and it came negative-non reactive. This test is taken after 10 weeks of possible exposure. Would this suffice at the time frame? Kindly suggest. Thanks!

Most people test positive by 10 weeks. Personally I'd be ready to celebrate with a 10 week negative. Be well.
