    Yes, HIV tests are trustworthy, and if you've had that many negative results since your last exposure, then you don't have HIV.  Maybe you have something else, but it's not HIV.  You should probably see a doctor if you have oral thrush that wron't go away, but I can't see any point in testing for HIV again.

    A human body is about 7% blood btw.  I don't know what percentage is lymph nodes, but it will be a lot less than for bone, muscle, organs, and fat.

      Ahh thank you for the correction! i was wondering what ammount it was! cheers.

      I'm pretty sick of seeing doctors/dentists/ they keep brushing it all over the shoulder.

      what does that look like to you in the picture? if you look at the back its like hairy? and this leads all the way down to my throat.


      Red chin rash wont go

      Glands under neck change size daily wont go

      diherrea changes daily soft,hard,watery 

      oral complications?

      21 years old male. 

      i was in a rough state for around 6 months worrying i had hiv could i have broken my body down so low through stress? i have caused a disease/illness unbalance in my microbes?

      i have pain in middle of my throat sometimes is this my thyroid?

      also have pericorontis on an impacted wisdom tooth too. (not an issuse) 

      any ideas?

      thanks for replying!

    If you tested negative after 3 months, and had no exposure during that time then you don't have hiv.
