Hi Gaffar , Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Hepatitis B is irritation and swelling or inflammation of the liver due to infection with the hepatitis B virus (HBV). It does spread through Blood Transfusions, Direct contact with blood through cuts on your body, Sexual contact with infected person, Tattooing with unsterile needles, sharing needles while drug abuse and sharing personal items with Infected Persons. Have you been exposed sexually to a Infected person? If yes, Kindly consult a Gastroenterologist and get a blood work up done like Anti HBs Ag antibodies and etc. as you may or may not show the signs and symptoms of Hepatitis B Infection.
If Positive, you may want to take Plenty of fluids, Get adequate rest and eat healthy nutritious balanced diet along with medications.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

I fingered a women then masturbated with the same hand. About 3 months later started feeling some groin discomfort and have had it on and off for 7 months. I went to the doctor and he said my lymph nodes aren't swollen and strongly opposed to an hiv test. I'm still paranoid about the whole situation should I be. She was really wet when I fingered her.

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.

Hello Dr.I am hiv+ but that is very much under control. The alopecia areatta began before my diagnosis and even with treatment of the hiv and cortisone shots, there is very little improvement. Rogaine helped my eyebrows but made my head hair worse. Do you have any recommendations?
