Avatar f tn Hello, I met with a friend that is hiv positive and is not on treatment currently. He was sweating a lot. I have a little scratch on the top of my hand. I gave him a hug hello, we had lunch and a drink together, then I gave him a hug goodbye. Is there any risk of me getting hiv from his sweat on my scratch?
Avatar m tn re in Dubai, where HIV positive foreigners are excluded and those found to be positive after arrival are deported. Are you sure he has HIV or merely suspicious or concerned about the possibility? Or perhaps you're currently in another country?
Avatar n tn Welcome to the STD forum. I reviewed your previous discussions on the HIV forum. I'm sorry to hear your inflated fears about your oral symptoms are continuing. What specimen was positive for chlamydia by PCR? Urethral swab, urine, oral, etc? Chlamydia is rarely if ever acquired by oral sex; and oral chlamydia would not cause geographic tongue etc. Alternatively, are you sure it was a PCR test? If you actually had a blood test for chlamydia, you can ignore it.
Avatar f tn Ive been dating this guy which I really like for a while and we had sex with a condom once, then he told me he is HIV positive and is taking truvada, I like him n we r dating but me being HIV negative I can't help but worry if I got it already. What is the probability that I got HIV if he is on truvada and we used a condom? He mentioned he is not rcontagious n has the least aggressive form of HIV. He's been on treatment for 29 years and is undetectable.
Avatar m tn Sustiva) due to the high VL, I got a geno and phenotype test done before starting treatment, Dr. check for antibodies at this time and still non react, during treatment I've been watching my counts very closely, which I've been undetectable since 08/2005, my VL went from 330,000 to undetectable in a period of two months and it has been that way, CD4 counts ranging at the beginning out of range, I don't know what this mean but anyways, DR.
Avatar n tn That is not a full treatment given for HIV. Truvada is never given alone for HIV treatment and yes you need to be tested. The viral load in blood is NOT the same as the viral load in semen.
Avatar m tn I am suffering from laryngiopharyngeal reflux (LPR) disease since 2 months. I had unprotected sex with a partner having unknown hiv status. It happened almost 8 months back. I can't face hiv test and it gives me lot of stress. I don't have other symptoms. Is it LPR only?
Avatar n tn t stop wondering how likely it is that this person gave me HIV. On Nov. 4th I tested for HIV and Syphillis. The HIV test was the rapid blood test (finger prick). Both of those resulted in a negative finding. Nov. 4th was only 19 days after the possible exposure and I know the recommended time frame is to be tested at 3 months. I have been unbelievably stressed out about this (I am a long time hypochondriac) and I find myself worrying on a daily basis.
1725905 tn?1309741273 I am a 35 yr. old male, HIV positive for about 12 years. CD4 stays in range at around 350-450, Viral load stays undetectible. I have a very severe case of Seborrheic dermatitis on my face, ie cheeks, forehead, chin. I currently have a topical prescription for Ketoconazole Cream 2%. I apply it daily, as well as wash my face with nizerol shampoo (over the counter), and apply hydrocortozone cream. NOTHING SO FAR RELIEVES the burning, severe flaking, intense redness of infected area.
Avatar f tn The power of ART today is so profound that many people who start effective treatment soon after becoming HIV positive will have a near normal life span. One important thing to understand, the viral load should remain undetectable for at least six months before depending on this approach as an effective HIV prevention strategy.
Avatar f tn At a year, a false positive, you wouldn't get a false negative this late.
Avatar m tn I am a 31 year old female who is scared to death I may be HIV positive. In November of 2007 I noticed a ton of tiny bumps on my soft palate. I don't know if they have always been there and I just never noticed them or not. The bumps are flesh colored and are painless but I cant stop obsessing over them. I have read that many mouth problems can be a sign of HIV infection. Scared to go to the clinic I did a home test (Home access HIV-1) in March of 2008 and tested negative.

Avatar m tn Your risk for HIV is relatively low and certainly lower than your risk for chlamydia which is both much more common than HIV and much easier to catch if exposed. HIV rates in Singapore, like elsewhere vary in terms of who your partners are but in general they are not excessively high. With regard to your question about the time it is taking to get your test results, in general chlamydia tests are done at different locations than HIV tests and on different schedules.
Avatar f tn Several volunteers on other forums who are HIV positive themselves and are receiving ongoing treatment have confirmed that, once they tested positive for HIV, they would always test positive (similar to mono).
Avatar m tn According to my doctor who did the test he said Oral is not a risk for HIV even if i received a blowjob while i had contracted syphilis because blood needs to be present to transmit HIV and Syphilis can be contracted with contact with a lesion hence he said HIV testing is only recommended for my mental clarity. Is this a true opinion?
Avatar m tn And even if it is HIV positive let it be !Because hiv positive doesnt means AIDS(that was 10-20 years ago). See it just like diabetes and all. You must be happy because its been detected earlier itself . Early detection n treatment will help u to lead a normal life. Just that u must take a pill daily to maintain your immunity. As u daily brush your teeth, bath and all, u must see that too just as a regular habit :) Be positive !
