Avatar m tn On 30 Dec 14 I was tested for HIV and tested negative. My question, was my shingles symptom of HIV infection? as I read the shingles is OI in HIV.
Avatar m tn I am 32 years old, healthy but under considerable stress I have been diagnosed Disseminated Zoster There is no pain, and the rashes are small, but they are in two separate nerves What are the chances I have HIV (I have almost no risk activity in the last 5 years and tested negative 5 years ago)
Avatar m tn hi Recently, i (male) noticed these small red dots in my stomach , my doctor said i have affected with herpes zoster.he advised to take Valtoval 500 virus tablet.
Avatar n tn It in fact worked very well and the rashes were gone in a week after i started taking the medicines. I read that shingles is mostly common in those who are above 50 years old, with HIV, or it may also cause because of stress. It freaked me out cause I am just 28 years old, so i went for HIV testing and it was negative. I am now curious to know if it is common to have shingles at this age, what could have possibly caused shingles on me? Do I have weak immune system?
Avatar n tn as i understand it herpes zoster is one of the capital symptoms of hiv. what are the symptoms of herpes zoster?
Avatar n tn I am terrified that everything I have read about shingles, HIV is mentioned. I know an HIV test is the best way to find out but I also wanted to get your professional opinion. Should I be very concerned?
Avatar n tn For the last 5 days i've been fighting the Herpes Zoster virus (shingles). I've been taking aciclovir but only since yesterday so yes there was a delay since the blisters first showed up etc... I'm always taking a range of vitamins. My question is does me having shingles at 22 years old maybe be due to the cancer coming back? or having HIV and not knowning so??

Avatar m tn But do you think that these are any symptoms of HIV?
1708219 tn?1307937860 5 weeks ago I had a protected vaginal sex with a CSW, I had no idea whether she was hiv positive or not. On 40th day I felt my chest hot, and two days later I saw 4 lumps of rashes on my chest and back, which felt quite painful. I saw my doctor, he said it is Herpes Zoster, and gave me some pills.
Avatar n tn I've been tested for HIV and i'm negative, and overall feel healthy. Is zoster that common at my age-- for my Dr. to take one look at this sore on my nose and know it wasn't sinus infection or something else? A similar pain happened 2 years ago on the opposite side of my face that ultimately went away without treatment-- the pain was in my ear and unbearable... there were no sores or rashes that time... could that have been a zoster flare up??
Avatar n tn I have never had any such incidents before, so this is all very odd happening at the same time, although I have been experiencing abnormal stress. HIV tests negative (both 4 mos. ago with 1st zoster and last week). Any thoughts on the recurring zoster at my age? Any more specific tests that I should be getting?
Avatar n tn HSV2 does not cause PHN. Is it possible that the HSV has caused a Zoster infection that has gone undetected? The thinking in my case has been that I must have Zoster because I have PHN - Yet I have never been diagnosed with Zoster, and have been diagnosed with HSV2. I am apparently not the only one diagnosed with HSV2 who has PHN. Could there be a contingent of people with HSV who develop PHN? Is anyone researching this? And -should I be tested for Zoster; if so, what test should be done?
Avatar n tn I am suffering from Herpes zoster. I have just had sex with my new boyfriend after abstaining for 7 months. I highly suspect I got this infection from him but he does not show any signs of this disease but he is very worried since he knows it is mostly people with HIV who suffer from it because of their low immunity. We both tested for HIV and our results are negative. Please advise.
Avatar m tn IS THIS VIRUS IS LINKED WITH HIV OR STD ? CAN IT CAUSE HIV IN ME CAN IT SPRED BY KISSING ? DOCTOR HAD PRESCRIBE TWO MEDICINES 1)BRIVIRAC125MG FOR SEVEN DAYS ONE DAY EACH 2) AUGMENTIN 3 times a day for 8 days its it the permanent treatment for it IF NOT WHAT COULD BE PERMANENT DRUGS FOR IT I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE THIS VIRUS AGAIN ?
Avatar n tn The nurse called me with the results and she said that I was negative for HPV1, but positive for HPV2. She said this was from the blood test. I had requested an STD panel and HIV test, so blood was drawn. Everything came back negative, except this, however the Syphillis test at first was positive, then the lab went further with the test and the final results on that was negative.

Avatar n tn People with late HIV/AIDS, which you cannot have, can get recurrent herpes zoster, but zoster is unrelated to early HIV infection and certainly not a problem for someone who has a negative HIV test at the time. And a 'recurrence' 2 weeks later doesn't count; that's more likely a relapse the same episode. In summary, nothing in your story makes me particularly concerned. But of course I cannot guarantee any particular person is or isn't infected.
Avatar m tn A Doctor told me it was disseminated Herpes Zoster. Another one told me it was not Herpes Zoster. However I took acyclovir and pregabalin. The blisters had gone completely but I still have some pain (not constant) in the foot after 4 weeks. Honestly and due the nature and locations of the lesions, I'm not completely sure it was Herpes Zoster. My blood tests were OK, and also no positive HIV.
Avatar f tn Due to a comedy of errors between the hospital and our GP in April and May this year we eventually landed up at an opthalmologist on 06 June, who briefly examined my fiance's eyes and took some blood tests - he called us the next day (07 June) to tell us that he is HIV+ and that he needs to get to the Hospital Opthalmology department asap. At this stage he was blind in both eyes and extremely dizzy, ill and terrified.
Avatar f tn Zoster has nothing to do with HIV or ARS.
Avatar n tn Hi Dr, Last july i went to an strip club ( full Nude ), i took a lap dance, i touched her boobs and vagina ( did not finger her ), while leaving she kissed me in my lips, so coming out after about a minute i used my fingers to wipe the lipstick. I got scared if i contracted HIV. I kept thinking what if i had some blood on my fingers and rubbed it on to my lips and i had a canker sore inside my mouth that time.
Avatar n tn I only pray its not HIV and one of the LESSER stds. Could this possibly be Herpes Zoster or Synplex? ANY help is VERY much appreciated!
Avatar n tn I got HIV tested a few days ago and it came back negative at this time. But I think she also has HIV, what is the chance that HIV also passed with the Herpes? Has this ever happened with just skin contact? I feel so stupid, I always thought condom would protect against STD's, but I hot Herpes... so sad... I will get tested in 2 months time again for HIV. Is there any chance?
