Hi small doubt did hiv test result negative after 28 days of risk attitude but after 10 days of test found 1 rash in my stomach ,any chances?

Not HIV: HIV doesn't cause rash alone; without sore throat, fever, and/or enlarged lymph nodes, you can be sure the rash isn't due to new HIV. Also, if you had a 4th generation or "duo" test, the negative result 28 days after the last possible exposure is conclusive. If an antibody-only test, it's still around 95% reliable, but for reassurance you might get tested again at 6-8 weeks. Good luck! ...Read more

An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more

I get fatigued every once in awhile and some years back I had a rash on my stomach and I tend to break out in hives and this itch whenever  I go on runs  and take a hot shower  or if my body feel overheated. Could this be a sigh on HIV  I did have unprote

Just do an HIV test: Some people are known to get leg itching and rashes from running (cause is unknown). If it is from histamine release, one can try taking Claritin (loratadine) or Zyrtec, 1/2 hour before running. If it is from the heat, try running at sunrise. If it is from blocked sweat glands, try a sauna 3 times a week. Maybe one can make a dermatologist appointment, and then run to the clinic to show a fresh itchy rash. ...Read more

Get checked: Any unprotected sex puts you at risk for HIV and all of the other sexually transmitted diseases. It is worth getting checked out with a physical exam and some blood tests for HIV, syphillis, hepatitis, and depending on what the exam shows, maybe others. ...Read more

Can HIV survive the acids in your stomach or digestive system?

Can HIV survive the acids in your stomach or digestive system?

Probably not: The concern is that oral sex admits the virus through the tonsils or other head-and-neck lymphoid tissue. Epidemiology shows it's not very efficient; women just aren't getting it from women this way, and catching it from a man seems difficult. Safe stuff (barrier protection, monogamy with someone hiv-negative) is still by far your best choice. ...Read more

Hi Does hiv rashes appears after 5 months and they appear frequently or they appear one after one i am talking after 5 months of hiv doubts?

Hi Does hiv rashes appears after 5 months and they appear frequently or they appear one after one i am talking after 5 months of hiv doubts?

Listen buddy: At five months after a risky contact, your ordinary lab screen is almost certain to be positive, and a nucleus acid based text is certain to be positive. Stop doing this to yourself, man. If your labs are clear, give thanks for good health, love safely, and get on with your life. Get the rash diagnosed by a competent physician; this isn't how HIV announces itself anyway. ...Read more

I am worried if I have hiv, its been a month and i been having stomach problems like diahreaa, what test after a month can tell i don't have hiv?

HIV Testing: I believe you have been told this answer at least three times. The only test you can have at this point that would be 100% accurate is the HIV RNA pcr test. Diarrhea is once again not in any way a symptom of an std, including hiv. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex few monthes back and started to have rashes recently. Red patches with little red spot. So is it hiv?

Rashes and HIV: Given the time frame you mention I am much more worried about syphilis. You must be tested. Hiv can show up with a pale full body rash, but this is rare. Syphilis can be deadly. It is time to get to a testing site or to your family doctor. Do not let fear delay you getting the information and testing you need. ...Read more
