Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
I can understand your anxiety.
HIV is not transmitted orally or through kissing.
Ayurvedic medicines have no effect on HIV.
Do a P24 antigen test and continue HIV testing till 6 months.
Do an HIV testing for your wife too if she is Hep B positive.
Consult a doctor dealing with sexually transmitted diseases and HIV.
TLC and lymphocyte count have no value in HIV.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.

Hi,
Please do not panic.
There is very little chance of acquiring HIV after all these test.
Late seroconversion can occur theoretically but it is very rare. Keep healthy and practice safe sex. Go for further testing if something goes wrong.
Bye

Hi,
Don't be scared...relax.
He had probably given you a prophylactic medication for accidental exposure to HIV.You should have completed the medication.
However there is nothing to get scared of.
Please send me the final report of X XXXXXXX
Isolated Right hilar prominence has no clinical significance.
What is your regular physician's opinion about your case?.
Stay cool.
