Hi there. I read your history with interest. From what you state (& both of you had protected sex), it appears you have the 'common-cold'. There is possibly a feeling of guilt & fear of HIV that's driving the brain to think otherwise. In any case, only a PCR test for HIV (NOT ELISA) will give you a crystal clear picture should you still be in doubt at this stage. Take the cold meds, blow your noses & rest with a good diet..all will be well. Cheers & GodSpeed!

Hi there.

Thanks for writing in.

Since a condom was used, chances of HIV are very less, though not impossible . At this stage, I feel it might be a case of viral fever. Just take paracetamol 500mg three times a day for 2 days . Drink plenty of warm water. Get some rest. If you don't feel better in 5 days, please visit your physician.

Hope this helps.
