Avatar n tn I just finished rabies vaccine here in Seattle. No word of caution about any of what you just spelled out (no hot drinks, no sex - what a bummer). Mine were all in the arm (after the first one in the butt). BUT....who knows what kind of vaccine they are giving you. Are all anti-rabies vaccines the same? Do you know a doc in the States you can call? Or email the CDC or public health. I would first find out the chemical name of the vaccine and what is in it. In any case - GOOD LUCK.
Avatar n tn insistance on 12 weeks for definitive testing is simply a conservative approach, not because of different test methods. The chance you have HIV, with the negative test result at 4 weeks, is astronomically low.
Avatar m tn Eulogy for a doomed vaccine: what happens when an HIV vaccine not only fails to prevent infection but may actually help cause it? Sean Kennedy assesses the second major vaccine study to go belly-up--and his own participation in it. It was bad enough when a promising HIV vaccine's global trial was halted last September because the drug under study failed to prevent infection.
Avatar n tn Hansfield for taking the time and providing us answers to our questions and your service in the Seattle area. First I have a question about my health. Would a sore from masturbation and herpes look different? Last night I masturbated harder than normal (and I've been doing so more frequently this week). Today there is what I think is simply a raw spot from friction on the shaft of my penis near where my index finger usually resides when masturbating.

146021 tn?1237208487 (I should also add that I had the Hep B vaccine the same week so there was some discussion with my doctor if it was the herbs, the vaccine or a combo). But nevertheless, my doc likened the incident to an acute attack and treatment was delayed until the enzymes came back down to baseline which took many months. HEY, STOP BACKING UP, THE INTERESTING PART IS COMING... Ok, my viral count before this all happened was over 30 million.

Avatar n tn 4. Medication is not a vaccine. It may help reduce transmission, but does not prevent it. Judging by the number of posts by married men worried about transmission after an encounter with a sex worker, I'd say being married has little to do with it. Also, I've been reading a report on HSV2 infection rate amongst monogomous Cosa Rican woman : 39.4% !! The publishers claim this is a direct result of the male population's sexual behaviour.
Avatar n tn And if you have HSV 1 which most people due maybe you still have genital herpes. Antibody tests are in fact useful for HIV and other diseases that involve the whole human body, not skin condtions. But remember there are no tests for HPV and plenty of people have that too without knowing it, and it is much more prevalent. I and others just feel that as you see on this website promoting HSV antibody tests for people who never had a cut, blisters or rash is irresponsible medical care.

Avatar n tn At the time I was working on a cruise ship. This time the doctor misdiagnosed me HIV and quarantined me and threatened to throw me off the ship. Thankfully they were very wrong and I stayed onboard. The next time it flared up was a couple months later this time on the back of my hands again. Just as before it started with tiny bumps that grew and blistered and spread.
