there is no possibility of HIV or ant other STD

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing to us. I can understand your concern.

From history it is 100% clear that there is no possibility of transmission of HIV or Herpes like STD (sexually transmitted disease).

And you have tested almost more than enough (though it was not needed) for assurance.

You are 100% safe.

'Still am getting itchy skin sudden rashes , stomach upset neckpain and pain in fingers and toes.' - All this can be related to your anxiety of having HIV or STD.

Just relax and always give reply your ind that you are safe whenever such thought come in your mind.

Even if your bothering continues, you can take anti anxiety medicine like clonazepam or etizolam for short duration after taking prescription.

Hope I have answered your query, I will be happy to help further.

Brief Answer:
hugging cannot transmit the disease

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for follow up.

HIV or other STD cannot be transmitted by hugging even if she is infected.

Ulcers in mouth can be due to nutritional deficiency or constipation.

Yes initially when you join gym due to muscle stretching pain can be there.

Chicken pox is totally different thing and anyone can suffer from it once in lifetime. No need to worry about that. With rashes no infection can be transmitted.

Take care and feel free to discuss further.
