Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for your HIV/AIDS related health information. It seems you're concerned about the possibility that you may be HIV positive. We're happy to answer your question.

We at AIDS Vancouver are not healthcare providers, so cannot comment or assess any symptom you're currently experiencing. However, HIV infections are never diagnosed based on symptoms alone, simply because the symptoms of an HIV infection are quite common to many other common medical conditions. Testing is the only way to diagnose an HIV infection. If you're concerned about any symptoms you're experiencing, we'd encourage you to see a healthcare provider. The drug acyclovir will not effect the results of any HIV test you've had.

We at AIDS Vancouver are trained to answer questions on HIV only, but if you'd like more information on the herpes virus, we'd encourage you to check out one of our favourite resources at [SmartSex](http://smartsexresource.com/topics/herpes-simplex-virus-genital-herpes).

Thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your question. We hope it has been answered fully.
