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, I am a male and about 2 year back I received unprotected oral sex from a stripper. 4 weeks from then I had fever and swollen lymph nodes. I also tingling sensation on the penis right after the exposure for about a week and had the same few weeks later. I got early detection tests done for HIV and herpes 32 hours post exposure - HIV came negative and herpes was equivocal. I have had 4-5 Hiv antibody tests done from then and all have been negative. I had one at 15th month HIV 3rd generation Antibody test (HIV-1 Antibody and HIV 1/O/2 Abs, Qual) which also came back negative. I have experienced chest pain, shortness of breath and chronic diarrhea and intermittent dry cough. Shortness of breath has been constant and I do not have any nasal congestion or sinus issues. My PCP has done EKG, chest xray and some blood tests and has no reasoning for this. I am so worried about this being HIV and it not showing up on my tests. I have read on forums that tests after 6 months are conclusive but these symptoms without explanation are terrifying. As of now, I have the following main symptoms 1. Chronic Diarrhea - been going on for more than 1 year now. Endoscopy done which didn t find anything. 2. Cottage cheese like whiteness on the tongue and redness on the inside upper mouth for more than 1year 3. Neck pain/stiffness I got another HIV test (HIV Screen 4th Generation wRfx) which was non-reactive and this test was done 2 1/2 years from the date of exposure. Searching medical sites suggests that there are cases where people are hiv positive but it doesn t get detected on tests for a long period of time as the tests are not 100% guaranteed (antibodies develop differently in different people). I am worried if I am one of those people as I have so many symptoms with no medically explainable reason behind them. What are the chances of me having it without it turning up in the tests that have been done so far? I would have considered the test conclusive evidence of not having HIV if I had clear diagnosis of what could be causing these symptoms. But since its not explainable, I am really worried.

Hi, I'm male, 30 yrs old and recently had unprotected sex with a girl i don't really know. As soon as the next day I noticed that my penis head was blotchy and red but without any pain or itching. There are no sores or blisters. This was now 4 days ago and there has been very litlle to no change in the symptoms. I have showered a couple of times and not used any creams or lotions. All the research I have done online suggests that it is very unlikely that these are the symptoms of a sexually transmitted disease but I am still very worried that I may have caught something, especially as I would not want to infect anyone else. Please help!
So about a month ago i have been getting little red bumps on my legs arms stomach and sometimes down between my legs.. Im worried as to what it could be. I just had a baby in november and was clean from stds but have had unprotected sex since. They are itchy before they appear and then they show up the next day then are gone within a couple hours..
I have been experiencing cold-like symptoms for the last few days. My father had the same symptoms and was better after four or so days. Today, however, I noticed that my stool color was a clayish white accompanied with moderate abdominal pain on my right side. Is this cause for concern?
Additional information. I have been drinking plenty of fluids (water and gatorade with the occasional soda) and haven't had any dietary changes. I have been taking vitamin C tablets, Sudafed, and Nyquil. I was in the Bahamas three weeks ago. I have had intercourse with only my girlfriend in the last year, prior to I had been tested for hepatitis and other STDs, all of which came back negative. I also chew tobacco regularly.
Hi. I am a 20 year old female. I was recently treated for a UTI which lead me to have a yeast infection. I since have been treated for both. I was also tested for STDs, as I am very afraid of them- twice. All results were negative both times. I am still having a burning sensation however and having some pain on the left side close to where the back side of the pelvis bone is if that makes sense. I never get this pain on my right side and it more of a dull, throbbing pain. The doctor said my lymph nodes were fine and I'm going to get checked again next week- just wondering if you had any ideas?
