Not due to HIV.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

Welcome to HCM.

The rash under your eye is due to some skin infection or allergy but not due to HIV so don't get worried or tensed. Tell me in detail about your exposure so that I can explain you in much better way. If still any query is there feel free to ask me and I am here to help you always.

Thank You

Brief Answer:
Your exposure is not risky.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

Welcome back and thanks for the follow-up.

The risk of getting HIV from oral sex and fingering is very less even if your partner is positive. You had protected sex with the lady so there is no risk in it.

The symptoms you have are non-specific for HIV and most likely due to other viral or bacterial infection not related to HIV so be relaxed, forget about the episode and live your life normally.

For any further query feel free to ask me again.

Thank You

Brief Answer:
Consult dermatologist for your problem.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

Welcome back once again.

You can use betnovate-c cream for local application over the rashes but better to consult skin specialist to isolate the actual cause and follow the treatment regime accordingly. Don't get scared or worried as the risk of HIV is not there in your case. For any further query you can ask me any time. Be relaxed and live your life normally.

Thank You
