hi All
i need advice on my exposure, ulitmately calming myself down, im 31yrs old and tested neg after 6mths of last exposure at may 2012.
below is my story
Exposure 06/1/13: unprotected oral, protected insertive virginal with sex worker in massage parlour. overseas with a temp of 7-9Deg 11/1/13. back in singapore 12/1/13. feet itchy (might be due to fungal/bacteria infections again as i had them in dec when i stayed inthe same place overseas as i was on 06/1/13.) applied dettol and was ok. 13/1/13: felt heaty (dont know is it heaty food on 12/1/13 and drinks and late night sleep) 14/1/13: feel feverish, runny nose, sneezed quite a lot of times in office. some rashes appeared resembling hives and sometimes have red spots/dots.itchy on hands and back. rashes come and go. appear and disappear. had a swollen gland under right jawline. pain when pressed. (is it due to weather change?) 15/1/13: felt better but rashes still remain. got lower backache like sprain(dont know due to packing on my last day?) no fever. 18/1/13: itching worst after drinking beer. never happen before 19/1/13: itching worst after drinking beer. same as 18/1/13. 20/1/13. back worsen after i sneeze but still wwent ahead for soccer. had to put plasters after that. wonder is it menignitis or other viral or just plain sprain? head cant bend down. body temp was around 36deg stupid like others but yet need to assure (or so i thought), search internet for information. till now rashes on off (hives and red dots), appear and disappear. temp constant 36-36.5Deg. hands cold, cannot concentrate, a little but runny nose, back pain loosen a bit, worried, stress, throat feels dry.. sounds liek ARS symptoms?

ARS happen 1 week after exposure like i mentioned earlier? am i in the higly infected group? now im in my 2-3 weeks zone and always feel the next day i wake up i will be seriously till wiht fever, rashes etc. stress gives you rashes? stress makes you fatigue?

You never had an exposure.

Must,

Getting a blowjob, with or without a condom, is NOT a risk for hiv infection. Not only is saliva not infectious, but it also contains over a dozen different proteins and enzymes that damage hiv and render it unable to infect.

And don't bother asking the blood-in-the-mouth question. Unless you're in the habit of repeatedly punching a person in the mouth before they blow you, there could not possibly be enough blood present to cause concern.

Protected intercourse is just that - protected. Condoms have been proven to prevent hiv infection.

There have been three long-term studies of couples where one is positive and one is negative. In the couples who used condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, but no barrier for oral activities, not one of the negative partners became infected with hiv. Not one.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED TO TEST FOR HIV SPECIFICALLY OVER A BLOWJOB OR PROTECTED INTERCOURSE, anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

Very worried

Ann:
must,

Why would you be experiencing ARS when YOU DID NOT HAVE A RISK FOR HIV INFECTION?

If you feel unwell or are worried about your skin, see a doctor. It's nothing to do with hiv.

Give it up and get on with your life. You have NOT had a risk for hiv infection.
