Scabies is an STD. It can spread even if you wear condom. So your doctor is absolutely right. Rapid tests are sometimes poor in quality so I would suggest you to go for HIV DUO by CMIA technique. Grossly risk of hiv is excluded but we should confirm it with gold standard test. Continue treatment of scabies as it's having high rates of recurrence.

HIV 1+O/2 Antibodies & HIV 1 p24 Antigen PARAMETER RESULTS METHOD HIV 1+O/2 Antibodies and HIV 1 p24 Antigen, Serum Nonreactive ECLIA Test specifications: 1) ECLIA: Senstivity 100%, Specificity 99.63% 2) CMIA: Analytical sensitivity of < 50 pg/mL to HIV-1 p24 Ag, Specificity >/= 99.5% Intended Use: 1) The HIV Ag/Ab (Generation IV) assay is for the simultaneous qualitative detection of HIV p24 antigen and antibodies to human immunodeficiency virus type 1 and/or type 2 (HIV-1/HIV-2) in human serum or plasma. 2) This assay is intended to be used as an aid in the diagnosis of HIV-1/HIV-2 infection and as a screening test for donated blood and plasma. 3) An HIV Ag/Ab result does not distinguish between the detection of HIV p24 antigen, HIV-1 antibody, or HIV-2 antibody. Clinical Significance: 1) Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection is the cause of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) as well as symptomatic disease prior to development of AIDS. 2) HIV transmission is due to direct contact with infected body fluids; primarily blood, semen, vaginal and cervical secretions, breast milk and amniotic fluid. 3) The contact is usually mediated by sexual contact, IV drug abuse & blood exposure. 4) Antibodies against HIV are nearly always detected in AIDS patients and HIV infected asymptomatic individuals. 5) HIV 2 virus is similar to HIV 1 virus, however is less pathogenic, have longer latency period with slower progression to disease, lower viral titre and lower rates of vertical and horizontal transmission. Confirmatory Test: 1) HIV RNA PCR Limitations of the test: 1) Heterophile antibodies in human serum can react with reagent immunoglobulins, interfering with in-vitro immunoassay. 2) Patients routinely exposed to animals or animal serum products can be prone to this interference. Reference: 1) HIV (generation IV) kit pack insert 2) Wallach's Interpretation of Diagnostic Tests, 9th Edition 3) Bakerman's ABC's of Interpretive Laboratory Data Disclaimer: Pre and post counselling for HIV test will be performed by referring physician/authority whenever patient is referred. * Sample processed at SUBURBAN DIAGNOSTICS adhere CPL *** End Of Report *** what kind of test is that I am sending its not duo test I don't after 3 month 20 days. Need real answer that's normal angular hiv test.

Lybrate-user, You seems some technical person as per the details you provided. You mentioned that "sample you are sending. How should I interpret the sentence. If you are patient than you should go for HIV DUO. It will give you best Test results. If you are professional and dealing with high risk patient than Go for HIV DNA PCR Qualitative after 14 days, Western Blot after 42 days and HIV DUO after 90th day.

Morning, firstly this forum is proving to be a big help at this time to me. Just a question to throw out there to everybody. Have read on here that transmission of HIV is very difficult from female to male vaginal sex -iit is true. 1) I am unprotected vaginal sex single exposer hiv positive girl. I am circumcised male. Male circumcised reduce the risk it is true. 2) 15 months post exposer my hiv western blot ,hiv rna pcr qualitative ,4th generation test ,elisa, tridot all are negative. 3) what is the exact hiv windowperiod. 5) some doctors says every 6 months take hiv test hiv windowperiod is 3 months to 10 years it is true. 6) I am take every 6 months hiv test ar any further test is needed. 7) I am worried this reason about my partner hiv positive but my test result all are negative any delay seroconversion I am become positive. 8) I am thinking all.

1. It's is true but male should be circumcised in his infant age. Circumcision has no additional advantage in protecting from any STDs if done beyond that period. 2. It suggest you have not acquired HIV virus. 3. Window period for CMIA - 90 days Western blot - 42 days 4. 5. 5-10 years is the duration to develop AIDS stage if someone has acquired HIV 6. If you have no regular exposure than not required. 7. Delay seroconversion is answered by Western Blot and HIV DNA PCR Qualitative 8. You should not bother about HIV and don't read much on Google else you will be end up with confusion.

I feel very sick after travelling even short distances. I have lived in a pollution free township and rarely used to travel. It is because of pollution and dust I feel difficulty in breathing and then there is suffocating feeling and headache. It is also the smell of car which makes me feel sick. Is it because of some allergy or is it because I can not breathe properly while travelling?

Please wear mask without any hesitation during travel. Many people have issue with smell of Diesel or Petrol. You have to find alternative as your exposure is not modifiable.
