Syphilis Diagnosis

3 Months ago i started having a reddish rash (no warts or sores) on my face, over the cheeks area. I went to the doctor and he suggested getting some exams, i got tested for HIV, Chlamydia and Syphilis and the last one came out positive (1:32)

After the exams i got 3 shots of penicillin with the last one being applied by January 2nd. After that i haven't had any follow up exams until last week that i took the VDRL and it came out (1:32) reactive again.

Does that mean the penicillin didn't work?

PS: i haven't had any sexual activity in the past 4 months

The lady also has small cut on her hand, Two weeks later I am experiencing Fatigue, Fever, Swollen nodes(pain comes and goes). I have tested -ve at 18 day mark, but my symptoms have been there for 2 weeks now. I am scared to death now.. I am really worried, I feel like killing myself... Please advise am I at a greater risk because I am circumcised and the skin which tore was under pennis glan ?

HIV risk through oral sex

7 months ago, I had two one night stands with two different girls( a bout a month apart) while I was in Texas. Now I'm worried that I might have HIV. I don't recall cuts on my penis and both gave me a blowjob and I only fingered them. I already had a test done two months ago and it reads that I'm HIV negative but it also said that the reason that it read negative was that it was too soon( 6 months was recommended). I feel fine except for this Streep throat that has reoccurred twice in the past three months and severe anxiety as the result of my fear. Could reoccurring Streep throat be an indicator of HIV infection? Do I need to go back and get tested to put this to rest?

Please, someone help! HIV transmission through hugging?

Thank you so much for your time.
I am panicking, two weeks ago I hugged someone that was HIV positive. I am now experiencing a runny nose and sore throat and I am very scared, especially because I have a baby. If someone could please respond I would appreciate it so much. Is there a chance I have contracted the virus?

How accurate is the 4th generation HIV combo test on 24 days while on pep medication?

I have unprotected vaginal intercourse with a sex worker. I am very regret on what i did and after 62 hours i am on the PEP medication. Throughout the PEP medication, i am having the side effects like nausea & dizziness almost everyday until now (24th post exposure). I have taken a 4th generation HIV combo rapid test with Alere HIV combo. The result came out negative. Would the result be accurate enough? I am having serious anxiety and go to different doctors everyday. Please help

Need help please - am i being paranoid

I had sex with a prostitute 9 weeks ago. It was vaginal and I was wearing condom and condom did not rip. She did however perform oral sex on me with no condom on, I did not perform oral sex on her.
At about 2 weeks I started feeling something in my throat like something was squeezing my lymph nodes. I started googling (worse mistake of my life) and got myself thinking about HIV. I did got to the doctor at 2.5 weeks and asked to get test for all the STI's and all came negative including HIV. Then I got test for HIV at 4 weeks and 7 weeks with the rapid HIV test and they both came negative as well. Doctor also tested my blood for the CBC (complete blood count) and once the results came back he said it was low pointing towards me having a virus in my system (it's flu time so not sure what kind of virus it was or is).

I got my lymph nodes looked at and they are not swollen and I have no other symptoms.

Should I be worried? and should I get re-tested again at 12 weeks.

Thanks for the help.

32yr single male

Sir, I had visited a hooker on 22nd december 2018. I had unprotected handjob from her. She applied lotion and put condom and gave blowjob for sometime. I had sucked her nipples for sometime and twice touched her vagina from outside and didn't finger inside. We didn't take shower before the foreplay but had shower after the foreplay. From next day onwards I persistent felt chills, cold sores, rashes on thighs, cold fever, nausea, frequent urination,headache, fatigue. After 2 weeks I had pain in the lower jaw and mouth ulcers with many tiny sores on inside cheeks (both sides). I'm really scared that I might have contracted STD/STI. Please tell me what are my chances of getting HIV from this act and symptoms.

Negative HIV antibody test 10 months after exposure to a HIV positive contact

Dear doctors,
This is my story. I had sex with a HIV infected partner, and he revealed to me his HIV positive status only when I started to have acute symptoms 3 months later after exposure when I texted him with a question, what's the matter with me, it looks like HIV and if it is, it is certainly from you and he answered me, yes I have HIV. Up to that 3 months period I had not suspected and not thought at all about any HIV. But after his confession I started to remember the prehistory. All that previous time I had an exhausted look though I didnt feel very tired. I also had some rare small night sweat outbreaks. After about 2,5 months I started to have some very small pain in the throat which after 3 months grew to a terribly full-blown flu-like episode with my pharynx hot-red and so painful, though fever grew slowly and did not rise above 38. All that time I had painful neck under the chin, which continues to this day and has not gone anywhere. This flue-like episode lasted about a week. But temperature about 37.2-37.5 lasted 2 months. Now too from time to time it rises to 37-37.2. Now often when I get up in the morning my temperature is 36.2 but the moment I leave my house for work it is often 37.2. I felt terribly tired about 1-1.5 months, I could hardly prevent myself from falling flat on earth any moment. But after 1-1.5 it disappeared almost completely. I also lost about 7 kg within a month, after that I gained back my weight quickly and even over my usual weight. From that time on my bowel gradually behaved worse, although before I have never had any problem with it. My stool about 1 month after an acute episode started to be more and more liquid. Now about about 1-2 times a week I have a perfect diarroea and this keeps going on already for more than 8 months. During the acute period my two very small hardly visible warts on the head became bloody and now they are quite bigger in size. During the acute period I started to have a coated tongue, which does not improve and continues to this day. I had HIV tests after 3,5, 6, 8, 10 months after exposure, all are negative. I have had some tender small spots in the lymphatic region in the neck and about the armpits on the chest from that period up to this time. So you can see I still have symptoms which I have never had before: sore throat with coughing (continues to this day), coated tongue, rises in body temperature, liquid stools with diarrhoea, some tiredness and weakness bringing me definitely some level down (though generally I am satisfactory). My exposure details are such. Anal sex was protected (I am on the active side), but my skin on the penis easily breaks even after small rubbing with some blood showing due to chronic fungal dermatitis. We had a lot of kisses, and there are papillomas in my throat which delay swallowing. I should explain about my fungal condition. It is chronic but spread all over the body and it is dormant. But if I rub my skin any anywhere just very little it breaks and becomes an injure. My doctor was very surprised that my fungus on the body did not disappear after many treatments with antifungals and became chronic though inactive, he said he has never seen such a case in his life. As for me I can attribute my new continuing symptoms to nothing else but HIV. Also it seems my immunity (although good enough in itself for living) is somewhat special and abnormal and can explain somewhat strange reaction of my body to HIV. Also I should say I cannot pay for PCR test, I must tell my name if I want it free, but I am terribly afraid of being disclosed. I will greatly appreciate your responses to my question what can you tell me about my case and what should I do? Can I do RNA test in your laboratory? Regards.
