What are the symptoms of HIV and Aids?

Hi Doctor, I recently visited a commercial sex worker and in the anxiety and excitement I fondled her breasts and allowed her to touch my bare penis. She rubbed my penis with her hand ( I had no condom on but I have undergone circumcision). She even gave me a wet kiss on my cheek. I realsised that I was doing something wrong and stopped at that. Since then I am terrified and worried if I stand the chance of contracting HIV and AIDS. Please reply if I run the risk and how soon should I get a test done if necessary.

Hello
You fondled her breast but you can't get HIV infection even she was HIV infected .
She touched your penis and its tip with bare handed , but you can't get an infection because in vitro HIV can't survive .
Now she gave you a wet kiss ,but saliva in mouth is having anti retro viral properties ,so in this way , you can't get an HIV infection.
Still you are very worried but this is natural and I also recommend you please get in p24 ( pcr dna ) antigen antibodies test for HIV confirmation ( nucleic acid amplification ).
Antibodies to HIV begin to appear within 2 weeks of infection, and the period of time between initial infection and development of detectateble antibodies is rarely > 3 months.
So after 2 weeks you can get this test.
Good luck.

i have a few brown spots on my body (chest and lower back) that I haven t noticed before. I am worried about HIV, as I had a high-risk sexual encounter ( a professional sex-worker woman who I found out is likely positive for HIV, syphilis, and herpes) on July 17, 5 weeks ago. I took an Oraquick antibody test after 3 weeks which was negative, and more significantly I hope, a DNA PCR HIV early detection test a couple days after. Both were negative. I did get the flu early August, during which I developed a case of peripheral neuropathy (hands, feet, left cheek), which haven t completely gone away to this day. I am also fatigued all the time, regardless of the amount of sleep I have had. I will test again for HIV next Tuesday, which will be the 6-week mark. What could I have?

Dear Doctor. I am working in Gulf. I am single 34. last march I came to India. During my vacation. I had sex with one married girl. Her husband also working in abroad. She was not a prostitute. She was one of my friends classmate. I saw rash in both of her lower arms. She told me that was allergy problem. Now I belive she was infected with HIV. During sex I used condom. but I put my fingers inside . and there was a small cut in my finger that happends 2 days before. and there was deep kissing . and she done oral without protection less than 1 min. After 2 days of the event I felt joint pain in fingers. and a small rash came to my upper lips and roof of my mouth . After around 35 days of this event some problems started on me:- 1 In my right side of my tounge and lips appeard white spots. 2, sore throat, reddish throat and swollen tonsil for a month. and my sound change. Red eyes for 2 days and foamy saliva 3, little swollen lymph nodes in neck and groin. 4, Very mild Flu around 3 week . a cold and discomfort feeling from chest and stomac 5,itchy Rash came in my whole body. coming and disappearing in 30 minutes 6, Neck stiffness and pain 7, 1 week there was diarrhea 8, swollen left upper eyelid one day 9, musle vibration in whole body 10, Digestion problem 11, black bloody spot in lips for one day 12, head presure 13 fatigue 14,Ear whisiling I took Augmentin 625 for 5 days. I am fearing to go a hopital here. I told her that you have some problem. So you should take a test. she went to a doctor and done General check up . and she told she is ok.she dont have any problem . I think she did not take Hiv test. Now I am very upset and worried about HIV. As I am in abroad I cannot take a Hiv test here anonymously. I belive i am infectd with HIV. What I want to do next? can I confirm HIV with these symptoms? If I am infected when I want to start treatment. How long I can hide this from others and family members. Is there any hope for curable medicines in my life time.

hi doc, im 32 yrs of age. i recently had unprotected sex with my girl friend about 7 days ago. well a day after having sex i noticed a bump just under the head of my penis. as soon as i noticed that i started experiencing sharp pains throughout my body from my feet to hands. 4 days after that i notice that there were two red scarrs that almost look like bumps where i first initially saw the first bump. seeing that really panic me. later that same day i experienced a light fever. for the past two days i havent really had a appetite and the sharp pains more than anything i am and have still been experiencing for 7 straight days now. I am a diabetic and am presently taking meds along with vitamin c. i looked at the side affects of the meds and they presented some symptoms that i where having but i still doubt that its from the meds because before i had sex i wasnt having these symptoms. this has become very overwhelming as i cant help but think that these symptoms are very well in the category of hiv. i just had a hiv test done in october. my partner stated she was last seen and check in march of last year. what do u think it could be doc? im pretty nervous and its hard for me to think and get things done as of late.
