Likely to be due to a hematoma...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The bluish black discoloration is likely to be a hematoma, probably due to an inadvertent injury. You needn't worry about this. It will resolve on its own.

Brief Answer:
Not indicative of HIV

Detailed Answer:
Hematoma is a blood clot under the skin. It is not a serious problem and will resolve on its own.

The rash could be due to an allergic reaction or a fungal infection. It is not indicative of HIV.

Brief Answer:
Nothing to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Both situations are not dangerous and you don't have to worry. Such kind of repeated doubts annd worrisome thoughts are indeed indicative of OCD. I would suggest that you consult a psychiatrist for further management of this problem.

Best wishes,

Night sweats can be due different causes like nocturnal panic attacks, fever, hypoglycemia, etc. If this has happened obly once, then you needn't give it much inportance. But if it is happening frequently, then you may need a detailed medical evaluation.

Brief Answer:
Not a serious problem... no HIV risk.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Hypoglycemia means low blood sugar.

Regarding the cut in your arm, another person accidentally touching it does not result in any serious problem. It does not result in transmission of HIV. So, there is no need to worry about this.
