Infectious Diseases Specialist, Dr. Arun's Response
Hello, Thnx to contact us. If I am your treating doctor I would like to advice you that HIV exposure is only and only possible once it exposes to the abraded area. since you have shaved and licked the vagina there is some chances to be infected with HIV. But you should know about the status of the sex worker. If the status of the sex worker is non reactive you do not have to worry regarding that. But if she is reactive I advice you to start the PEP which is available in most government hospitals free of cost. You can confirm your status after 28 days of PEP with P24 Antigen test, which is earliest confirmatory test. If you have anything else to ask please contact me. Thanx. Dr. Arun Tank

Hi, I had a protected exposure atmost 1.7 years back. Recently i have checked for HIV RNA , DNA PCR, ELISA and Western blot test and everything came back negative. DO I still need to worry? I have problem with digestion due to gastritis. Is this a symptom of HIV?
Is it possible I have AIDS? Here s the thing. My friend has protected sex with whores. About a month ago, he got drunk and had unprotected sex with a whore and idk if he contracted aids. About two weeks ago, he had protected sex with a friend of mine, but she blowed him without a condom. A week ago that girl gave me a bj, and idk if she got aids from my friend ( if he got it from the whore) and then she passed it to me by giving me oral without a condom. I m really worried, any help would be appreciated . Thanks beforehand
Poisoning: First aid Many conditions mimic the signs and symptoms of poisoning, including seizures, alcohol intoxication, stroke and insulin reaction. So look for the signs and symptoms listed below if you suspect poisoning, but check with the poison control center at 800-222-1222 (in the United States) before giving anything to the affected person. Signs and symptoms of poisoning: * Burns or redness around the mouth and lips, which can result from drinking certain poisons * Breath that smells like chemicals, such as gasoline or paint thinner * Burns, stains and odors on the person, on his or her clothing, or on the furniture, floor, rugs or other objects in the surrounding area * Empty medication bottles or scattered pills * Vomiting, difficulty breathing, sleepiness, confusion or other unexpected signs When to call for help: Call 911 or your local emergency number immediately if the person is: * Drowsy or unconscious * Having difficulty breathing or has stopped breathing * Uncontrollably restless or agitated * Having seizures If the person seems stable and has no symptoms, but you suspect poisoning, call the poison control center at 800-222-1222. Provide information about the person s symptoms and, if possible, information about what he or she ingested, how much and when. What to do while waiting for help: * If the person has been exposed to poisonous fumes, such as carbon monoxide, get him or her into fresh air immediately. * If the person swallowed the poison, remove anything remaining in the mouth. * If the suspected poison is a household cleaner or other chemical, read the label and follow instructions for accidental poisoning.
