Brief Answer:
The symptoms are not due to HIV

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic

Dear Mr XXXXXXX

A negative test after the serological window period of 12 weeks certainly rules HIV infection. The cause of your symptoms is definitely not HIV .
It would be very helpful if you could send the clinical picture of rash and penile ulcer for further assessment. Kindly also let me know your present health status and symptoms.

Awaiting your response


Take care

My current status is slight blurry vision, eye sensitivity to light, swollen lymph behind left ear and under left jaw. All blood test show excellent health condition. What could be the cause of this. All other symptoms subsided as months past. But these continue

Brief Answer:
Symptoms unrelated to exposure

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Greetings

Isolated enlargement of only neck lymph node which are smaller than 2 cm , non tender and freely XXXXXXX is not significant. There is no reason to be worried about. If you have already undergone opthalmic assessment and everything is fine then there is no cause for concern.

Put back the past incident and move ahead. Definitely no relationship to your present symptoms.

Take care

The cause of symptoms is likely to be anxiety and stress. Also the fear of having contracted infection could be causing these symptom.

Brief Answer:
Infectious Mononucleosis

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Good morning
Greetings of the day

Infectious Mononucleosis could be one of the possibility. The infection is self limiting and not serious. Clinical assessment by your Physician will be more reassuring.

Recent questions on  Night sweats

doctor1 MD

I have recently taken a close friend of mine to the Emergency Room due to shortness of breath, and a pinch on the left side (lung/chest area) it is worse when taking a deep breath. He is also experiencing night sweats very badly, to the point where the bed is drenched. He also will just be sitting and he will break out in a sweat to the point where he is just dripping sweat. he is a little overweight but the ER didnt diagnosis him they basically said it was just something that happens and sent him home with pain medication. it has now been a little over a week and he still is experiencing the pain on the left side and is worse when he takes deep breaths, and is still sweating. do you have any idea what this could be? he went to a follow up and the doctor actually told him he didnt have a clue what could be wrong. said the chest x-ray looked fine and again gave him another prescription for pain medication. i feel as if it is something more serious, but now he is being stubborn and wont go back to the ER because he thinks the doctors are just passing it off as nothing serious. he is very uncomfertable and i just want to know if you have any idea what this could be so maybe i could pass the information onto him. thank you!

I have severe, constant itdhing of the skin. Have been unable to determine the cause. Nothing has been changed in diet, laundry detergents, etc. The itching seems worse during the night, causing night sweats, dampness of undershirt. Dermatologist has given me AMMONONIUM LACTATE CREAM, 12% to use twice daily and it seems to burn when applied.

caught an unknown cold/virus 14 days ago. initial onset skin irritation I had been sunbathing 30 min in afternoon sun. first three days of infection characterized by severe skin sensitivity. hot and cold flashes. night sweats. moments where i cant get warm at all. by day 5 I was feeling better so I went back to work. day 6 rebound. day 7 decided to sweat it out with some work. rebound. day 8 9 and 10 bedridden left shoulder from mid back to base of neck locked up in spasm. day 11 took anti inflammatories felt horrible got home started hiccups. all other symptoms still with me to a seemingly lesser degree but now i have persistent hiccups and going on day 3 with no relief. tried 100mg gabapentin, worked for an hour.

I have had a fever for the past 3 days along with a stiff neck and back, and loss of appitite. My fevers usually range between 101.5- 102.6 with the occasional 103- 103.6. Last night I had night sweats and have started to get an infrequent cough. I also have granuloma annulare and with my immune system down it has flaired up swelling one eye shut and leaving various lesions around my knuckles, feet, and face. The fever and aches are keeping me up a lot at night and herefore I am always tired. Unfortunetley I am between providers and my insurance will not kick in until the 18th so seeing a doctor would be quite expensive. I have been drinking a lot of water and occasionally taking some over the counter fever reducers. I do have a perscribtion for Amoxicillin but I am not sure if that will help me. Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
