I had a possible exposure to HIV, five months back. It was exactly on the 45th day I took an HIV fourth generation test, both HIV-1 and HIV-2 were nonreactive. At the 105th day, I took an ELFA HIV 1 and 2 antibody test, which was also nonreactive. I also did a viral load EDTA plasma HIV RNA-PCR test, which was done on the 123rd day, which stated 'not detected.' My symptoms are allergic rashes with higher IgE levels since a year. I am a known asthmatic. I had an anal fissure, following a day of constipation. I also have small red spots on the glans penis, which my dermatologist claims to be ectopic sebaceous cysts. I am taking Alaspan, Methycobal, and Symbicort for asthma. I am recently married and panicked. I have even gone to an extent of killing myself for being restless, out of guilt. Let me know if my medication or my IgE levels would interfere with my HIV results. Can I allay my fears from the above results? Are these tests conclusive?
