I have been with my boyfriend for 2 years. 3 weeks ago i sat in a large amount of urine. Have acne on butt. Now every symptom of hiv. Possible?

Why would you think this of all of the millions of other more common possible problems there could be? ...Read more

Does a thyroid level in the TSH 4.1 to 5.2 range indicate hypothyroidism? Is very dry skin and increase in acne also a symptom?

Does a thyroid level in the TSH 4.1 to 5.2 range indicate hypothyroidism?  Is very dry skin and increase in acne also a symptom?
