Flu and rash with diarrhea and negative HIV tests after exposure

Resolved Question:

Dear Dr.

Please I have a situation which needs your advice and consultancy.

I had a sexual relation with a women 6 month and 4 days ago without using protection or condoms.

I have bad health since that time and facing so many problems as per the below:

-flu with fever for a week

-felt very high fever in my blood internally burning moving in my body for couple of days

-had bad virus in throats twice and Doctors gave me Augmentin Antibiotic twice and klavoks once.

-having rash till now as small red dots and big brown dots in all my body special my back

-having high allergy as my IGE test is 480 while normal range is up to 200.

-having bad body pain

-having headache from time to time

-feeling no power in body

-having diarrhea every day after lunch and dinner meals

Im stressed and having bad feelings because of afraid might have HIV Positive since 6 month so this cause lots of problems too.

I did the below HIV test and all results negative:

-HIV combo test after 2 month from date of relation

-HIV P24 antigen test & HIV 1&2 after 3 month from date of relation

-HIV Combo test after 4 month

-HIV P24 test after & combo after 5 month from date of relation

-HIV Combo test and HIV 1 &2 after 6 month & 1 day from date of relation

All test results is negative but I still can’t know if this is accurate and if I’m infected or not and what are the Synopsys that I’m having.

Please I need your medical advice to know what to do.

Can anyone be HIV positive and get negative test after 6 month ?

Can anyone be HIV positive and keep testing negative?

When does the window period end so test will come positive if infected.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Thanks and best regards,

Thanks for your query at DoctorSpring. I can understand your concern.

If the HIV tests are negative even after 6 months, then they are accurate.

Window period is usually three months after exposure.

I would recommend that you visit your doctor who can order blood tests for you like complete blood count, liver profile, kidney profile etc.

There is probably some other reason for your symptoms.

You could send me a picture of your rash, which I can have a look and suggest to you what is the rash due to.

P24 antigen assay is usually confirmatory test for HIV , however in case your doctor feels the need to repeat a test for HIV after he examines you and does the other blood tests, he would advise you accordingly.

Hope I have answered all your queries. Please feel free to discuss further.

Take care.
