Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi doctor, I had sex with a partner two weeks back , who is married.This was the first time i had sex and i am not sure i used condomn properly. I became very much depressed after that and i started getting body pains and lethargy . She went for an Elisa test just before we had intercourse and the result was negative...The 11 th day after the incident i went for P24 antigen as well as VDR (TPHA) test . THe results are negative.Do i have the risk of getting HIV/ any other std?I am paranoid on this. I also started getting small black/white rashes on my body . I went to a skin doctor , he said these are not related to std's .I am totally confused.Please help me .
Doctor :   please give me a couple of mins to read your query
User :   ok
Doctor :   i would suggest you repeat the HIV test again
User :   why doctor?
Doctor :   as it must be done at least 2 weeks after exposure
Doctor :   and even if it is negative , we suggest it should be repeated after 3 months
User :   which one should i do doctor ?? elisa or p24 antigen ?
Doctor :   you could do a combo test for the same that is HIV ELISA and P 24 antigen
User :   also doctor , she took elisa and it was negative...
Doctor :   the combination is more reliable and sensitive than individual tests
User :   just 2 days before incident
User :   moreover she dint have relationship the past 5 months
Doctor :   ok
User :   so do i still have the risk ???
User :   my skin doctor said the rashes are not symptomatic to any std ...and he asked me to meet a psychiatrist
Doctor :   if the partner did not have intercourse and her ELISA suggested negative then there is very very less chances of getting the infection
Doctor :   yes , I agree with your skin doctor
Doctor :   rashes are not spcific of an HIV or STD
Doctor :   they may just be a dermatitis
Doctor :   an allergy as well
Doctor :   they increase if a person gets stressed
User :   i started feeling depressed doctor and started getting body pains.... after having multivitamin tablets , i am starting to feel well doctor
Doctor :   seeing the psychiatrist is a good option
Doctor :   ok , i suggest you not to worry much
Doctor :   as her status was negative and you also used a condom
Doctor :   so the risk is very very minimal
User :   what about any other std's doctor?
Doctor :   if you feel depressed share your feelings with someone you trust
User :   will the vrda test be accurate if taken after 11 th day
Doctor :   other STD's also are not much of a possibility as condoms are known to protect from all STD
Doctor :   and if your skin doctor would have felt a need , he would surely suggested tests
User :   because since i started to feel some rashes within my palm, i fear it could be syphilis
User :   but it was exactly 2 weeks after the incident , so could the doctor identify the marks
User :   ?
Doctor :   from the history you give the rashs do not seem like an STD
User :   my skin is very sensitive doctor, so i have a history of rashes even if i dont iron my shirt (even before the incident)
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   sensitive skin will develop rashes
Doctor :   it is common
User :   so doctor what is the best thing for me to do..because after taking the multivitamin tablets given by doctor, my body pain has decreased
Doctor :   and due to the weather also some changes add on
Doctor :   ok , it is good to learn your pain has decreased
Doctor :   i suggest you continue the multivitamins for 3 more months
Doctor :   and also see a psychiatrist
Doctor :   do some daily physical activity
Doctor :   like running , jogging , join a gym
Doctor :   it will reduce your worries and depression
User :   sure doctor, can you let me know how will the rashes of HIV look like????
User :   sure doctor, ill do those activities
Doctor :   you will feel better and more energetic
Doctor :   the rashes may present in any way
Doctor :   from plane red rashes to spots , white lesions on mouth , etc
User :   i am getting black dots very very tiny it symptomatic to anything?
Doctor :   but they will also have fever , and very sick feeling along with rshes
Doctor :   no , it is not
User :   also one more thing doctor, i started to get white spots on my skin recently
Doctor :   i say this ,a s you have got yourself examined from a skin doctor
Doctor :   that white spots could mean anything like even dry skin
User :   the doctor said these are just spots
Doctor :   i suggest you moisturise your skin daily
Doctor :   and they will come down
User :   ohh ok
Doctor :   sometime calcium and vitamin deficiency can cause this
Doctor :   do not think a lot of them as it will lead to more itching
User :   ok doctor so can i be free of worries of hiv as well as other std's
Doctor :   yes , do not worry
Doctor :   see a psychiatrist
