HIV Prevention and Testing > Am I Infected?




i decided to ask some question regarding on my stress about if i'am possitive with this disease.
June 8, 2013 when i got this oral sex with a gay and after that i dont usually have this HIV symptoms, until
July 7 i got drunk and i do not have enough sleep and went to my office for work, i do have a hang over and
my colleauge was browsing some internet stuff and when i look at what he was browsing, i saw the HIV on the MSN websites
the symptoms, the pictures and i was terrified if i do aquired this kind of health condition, starting on that day i dont
feel well, i feel that i do have a fever, no lymph nodes swollen. no muscle ache, no joint pain and no diarrhea.

July 17, i decided to ask my physician regarding on my condition, but not the HIV symptoms.
she ask me what i feel, i told her that i feel this fever like feeling, pain in the stomach.
nurse take my weight, take my temperature is 37.1 (normal temperature), but my blood pressure is not normal.
she decided for a blood testing (CBC)

CBC resulted into good conditions, she told me that my blood was in good condition and no infections from bacterial
and viral noted.

she told me that iam fine and i do not have a fever, nor my stomach is fine. after that check up, i feel so fine.

after a days, i saw my nephew suffered from a rash with no fever all over the body, and my feelings about that symptoms
from hiv rash went back suddenly, then one morning, i look at my tummy and then i got a 2 small rash and its itchy, the
rash continues to my armpits 3 small rash after the rash heals on my tummy,and then after healing on the armpits the right armpits
has a rash, (the rash look likes hives but its itchy) my whole body feels like a bee sting feeling, a itchy feeling also.
i used calamine lotion to relieve the itchyness and its effective, i used actibacterial cream and it heals but it takes days.

until now i feel the itchyness, the hives still persist, with no fever, no lymph nodes swollen, no diarrhea, nor muscle ache
and joint pain.

my question is.

is hiv rash is so itchy?
is this an fear or anxiety to what i read? or am i infected?
is hiv cause a feeling of bee sting and itchyness?
is oral sex is safe from HIV?
is the flu from the infection is worst? can people able to go to work with this kind of flu?

until now i do have this itchyness and sting feeling, and a hives that itch. its August 24. 2 months after the exposure, near to
3 months.

hoping for your response and advise.

Jeff G:
You didn't have a risk , getting a blow job isn't a risk for HIV .

There have been no fewer than three separate serodiscordant couples studies (where one person is HIV positive, the other negative.) These couples were tracked for three. five and ten years. The couples used condoms for penetrative vaginal and anal sex, but NO BARRIER at all for oral sex. Any kind of oral sex.

These studies yielded NO infections.

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED HIV TESTING AT THIS TIME for this incident , 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!

You didn't get HIV from oral sex so if you are feeling ill go see your doctor again and find out what's making you sick .
