now a days this test has become mandatory,it would be helpful if you mention the skin infection you were diagnosed so that i can tell you if it is really relevant
once if report is non reactive may be because you either dont have it or you may be in window period(meaning though you have a hiv ,the test used could not diagnose it) hence advisable to get it checked in 6 more months (supposing that the window period is 6 monthss which may also vary)
dont worry such phobias are common,be health conscious avoid any risk factors of hiv infection
have a happy and cheerful life
thank you
