Thanks for the query.

Relax. You have a variety of Gastric symptoms & they don't necessarily have anything to do with AIDS.

You have done a PCR & ELISA tests at your mentioned intervals & this is enough. For completion sake, please repeat your ELISA at a different lab with a different method & am sure it will put your mind at ease.

Please go visit a good gastroenterologist to know what is causing the intestinal symptoms. It is unlikely to be related to HIV

The skin symptoms you describe are most likely a fungal infection. Please go over to a dermatologist or use a local mixed cream containing clobetasol-gentamicin-miconazole that you can easily procure over the counter in your part of the world & you may want to add a 'single' tablet of fluconazole 150mg in addition in conjunction with your treating doctor.

Prevention is better than cure & please do consider using protection in the future vis-a-vis condoms should you continue to have such relationships.

Hope this makes you feel better & answers your queries. Let me know if you need more information.
