Brief Answer:
No HIV test is required.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

Welcome to HCM.

The risk of getting HIV through the exposure which you had mentioned is not possible at all so no HIV testing is required. Avoid relating every incidence with HIV as these kind of exposure are impossible.

The stomach problem may be due to food you ate not related to HIV. Allay the fear or anxiety related to HIV, avoid stress or tension and move on in life. For any further query feel free to ask me any time.

Thank You

Brief Answer:
It may be due to food.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

Welcome back and thanks for follow-up.

The blood may be salty due to the food you have or you feel like that nothing else and even though it is salty than also nothing is the matter of concern so don't exacerbate the things and move ahead in life.

Brief Answer:
Yes it is normally salty.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

Welcome back once again.

The taste of blood is usually salty that's why such type of feeling is there nothing more than it so no need to think upon excessively as there is no risk of HIV in any way so calm down and move ahead.

What's this mark on thigh???
doctor
Answered by Dr. Sunil Jangid 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
It is not related to HIV.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

The mark on the thigh is due to allergic reaction or other fungal infection as per attached photo but it is not related to HIV. Consult any dermatologist for treatment and follow the advice. You are free from HIV so don't get worried or scared and move on.

Thank You

Brief Answer:
I don't think so.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

I don't think that electrical has any thing to do with the tears as per my knowledge but you can surely have second opinion on this at healthcare magic. If still any query is there feel free to ask me again.

Brief Answer:
It is not of any concern.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

The way you are thinking is not considered as risk in any way as per my experience and knowledge of HIV. For any other issues apart from that you have to consult concerned specialist to get much better information. Again I will advice you to calm down.

Thank You

I heard that if you have chronic stress , no hair loss product will work to restore or regrow hair until the stress is relieved, is this correct?
