It is less likely: that you received HIV transmission, however in the first 3 months it is common to have negative titers despite being infected.

As well you should discuss prep and pep w/your doc. ...Read more

Painful sores : If you have painful sores, I would think about herpes simplex (lips or labia?). Anyways, primary herpes simplex can cause pretty extensive sores.

I had unprotected sex.Test for HIV after 70 days .Result is negative.No fever, swollen lumps..So will again test ?
Your call: At 70 days, a cheap HIV elisa test is usually positive. Almost all 20 year olds have some swollen lymph nodes if they search, and if you have no fever, it is very unlikely to be acute hiv. If you are terribly worried, a pcr will tell you for certain. You did well and were brave to ask. One of the most masculine tings you can do is try to save yourself for that one special person. Love wisely! ...Read more

Had a systemic reaction to hair dye 2 months ago. Suspect allergy to ppd. Still sick. Headaches, diarrhea every morning, lost 10 pounds.?
Unlikely the PPDA: Allergic reactions to ppda (para-phenylenediamene) found in most permanent hair dyes can be profound, prolonged and severe. If you are still having those types of symptoms you need to see your doctor to make sure something else is not going on. Don't just assume it the PPD reaction two months after. Good luck to you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
