Are swollen glands under the jaw line and dry mouth signs of HIV?
Not related to HIV.
Welcome to HCM. I understand your concern and try to solve it at the earliest.
You had protected sex with unknown lady and the test result for HIV also came back negative after 4 weeks then the possibility of getting the HIV infection is very unlikely so forget about the incidence and move ahead in life.
Tooth pain, swollen glands under jaw line, dry mouth and minor ulcers on cheek all these symptoms are due to bad oral hygiene or some other infection as your GP said but not related to HIV so don't get feared or tensed and relax your self.
Consult your dentist or physician and follow the treatment regime as per expert advice. For any further query you can get back to me any time.
You have to go for repeat testing after 3 months.
Welcome back and thanks for follow-up.
ECLIA is an antibody test so it is highly reliable at 26 days but not conclusive because the window period for HIV varies from 15 days to 3 months.
You have to go for repeat testing after 3 months to get 100% conclusive and accurate result so don't get stressed as the risk is very unlikely in your case
You are most welcome.
You are most welcome any time. If you need any help in future write to me directly at healthcare and I am always available here to help you.
Don't get stressed and consult dentist or ENT specialist.
Welcome back once again.
No need to get worried about mouth related issues or swollen glands because these are not related to HIV. Consult dentist or ENT specialist to isolate its cause and follow the treatment regime. Be relaxed, you will be fine soon. For further query get back to me again. Wishing you happy and healthy life.
