What the hell, change doctor and dentist ASAP!!!

The picture you have seen must have been pseudomembranous candidiasis on the hard palate:

if this really is your case your dentist should have noticed it. Candidiasis usually results in a coating of the oral mucosa, not a discoloration.

Did you test negative after the window period? Try to find a competent dentist that can help you with your problem. In the meanwhile don't stress out too much about symptoms and believe your tests. Hugs

it doesnt look like the picture you linked worried. its uniform color and not chunky and broken like the candidiasis. also i cant scrape it off as its not a film or anything. its just like the front half of the roof is white.

its kind of like this picture, only if you can imagine the red spot not being in the middle, would leave only a white colored area up front.
