You maybe suffering from viral or allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.

You got the tests done but have you seen a qualified doctor? I am surprised that you were not advised chest x ray if you had seen a doctor.

I met a girl (prostitute) in a bar. I don’t know HIV status. She kissed me on lips, it was a closed mouth dry kiss for just a second and I did’t see it coming. It took me 3-5 second to release the kiss. Later she also kissed on my cheek and there was a pimple with no blood. She touched me on cheek and chin with hands. We were holding hands, nothing more than that and I don’t know anything about her. I had sore-throat at that time and I cleaned lips and cheek with my hand, later I ate chips without washing hands. At that night, I washed my hands and face with soap and I got cold. Next morning, I got cuts with my own blade during shaving. After one week I saw cavities in my mouth and loosing weight 4-5 kilos and recovered from cold in 3 weeks. After 3 weeks, I got tested HIV 1/2 P24 screening test. It was 0.1 non reactive. Now after 4 weeks, I got symptoms like left upper stomach pain with stool feeling after every meal (from 1 week), rashes like ant bites in nights with itching (from 6 days), headache (from 5 days) and dizziness and pain in right hand and right feet, mostly in joints (finger, elbow, shoulder, knee)(more than 1 week). I have muscle pain in hands and arms and thighs. I don’t know about swollen lymph nodes. I have white tongue and yellow after every meal. I saw a white ring in tonsils. These symptoms never happened to me before. I am dying with stomach and joint pain. I am so much worried and depressed about these symptoms. Please reply asap.

Hi Rahul... if you are worries about HIV.. then what you describe cannot cause HIV.. But our mind is very strong... and if you believe and fear that you have HIV.. it will start mimicing like that... or it may be some other sickness... Better consult for proper treatment...
