Is Keisha Campbel And Her Husband Hiv Positive
My 3 year old tested positive for strep,so we are treating him and his brother Ender (although Ender wasn't tested). Ender now has rash and diarrhea?
Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods. 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
If a man doesn't take all of his antibiotics for chlamydia in 15' and his partner tested negative in Oct 16' and now he has tested pos. Is he cheating?
He was infected.: if in 2015 he was positive for chlamydia didn't finish his antibiotics he may still have had it. But, if he has had sex with his partner throughout 2016 and she was negative then he probably did NOT have it. Now he is positive again. This means most likely he has a new exposure to chlamydia. Please followup with your primary doctor to get treated and tested. ...Read more
My 6yr old little boy was raped and tested positive for hep c twice but now the doctor is sayn she thinks its a a (false) positive. What happens now?
My son is a former IV drug user on suboxone. He is HCV antibody positive, but he did not have a viral load on further testing. Should his dad and i get tested?
Hepatitis C: If you are in any way worried then get tested. But, there is no transmission in households or other close proximities. Hep c is about blood to blood transmission. It sounds like he is one of the lucky ones that cleared the virus on his own. He is not contagious. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
My sister found to have positive IgG for cmv, toxoplasmosis, and rubella. She don't have kids but she has 3 miscarriage.. What is the treatments?
None: A pos igg just means that she has been exposed to these agents and has developed some immunity. The more important antibody would be igm which indicates current or very recent infection. There are many reasons for miscarriages and it requires a gyn to assist her on that. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My friend and business partner Scott just confided in me that he has recently been diagnosed with HIV. He is very confused, lost, depressed and is contemplating suicide. Please advise.
Call crisis line: That is so hard! HIV is not AIDs. Treatment is better than ever. If he feels suicidal, have him call a crisis line, or 911. He is so lucky to have a friend like you who cares about him. Keep it up. You don't say where you are from, but I am sure there is an HIV/AIDS support group in your state or area. That can be a treasure-trove of help and advice. See http://tinyurl.com/puok946 ...Read more

My wife is 3 weaks preagnent an she had her toxoplasmosis test and tested positive with Igm 7.05 and IgG 81.0.is there any risk on the fetus Thx?
Toxoplasmosis: Highly improbable that she has had acute Toxoplasmosis during pregnancy. This pattern suggests old infection. If she ever becomes profoundly immune suppressed it is possible to reactivate Toxoplasmosis and so her doctors should be aware of the prior history of exposure. It is one of those organisms that once having acquired you never get rid of. Fetus should be fine. ...Read more

My HIV test result is 0.9-1.0=1.0 and healthtap doctors answered that,this is HIV negetive.can i continue my sexual life with my family?thanks.
Never give up loving: I'm glad you got good news. If you're reassured you are HIV negative and it's been enough time after the dangerous event for you to be confident, then go back to unprotected intercourse if that is your wish. Until then, use a condom. Many couples prefer this anyway. You MUST not forego intercourse in a marriage, though it can be protected, or other aspects of the relationship will tend to fail. ...Read more
