      hey

      thanks for the information as i could not tell you if that is related to hiv or not.

      what was the risky behaviour you had? if you want, you can send me the private message then i could analysis for you as your behaviour decides how possible of getting infection.

      regards,

      hugo

    saw my doctor today. he told me the rash was not an STD and that i was overthinking everything. he ordered my to have a a full STD check both blood and urine. i should have my results back later this week.

    i did take an at home OraQuick hiv test and it came back negative. it has been 4 weeks post exposure. i am continuing to pray everyday and hope i am going to be okay. stay tuned
