Worried and scared!!!!!!!!!!!!
An_244655 posted:
I have always had really bad eczema every since I was a baby. The other night I was sweating badly and I noticed a lot of little bumps on my face that hadnt been there earlier at all. Also my hands have been itchy and dry recently. Not only do i have eczema but i also have GAD (generlized anxiety disorder) and have been under a lot of stress. I've never had sex but was sexually assaulted (orally with no fluids) about 5 years ago. Should I be scared???? Help me please

These are not symptoms of HIV.

There is no need for testing.

Since there were no fluids present in your assault, there was no risk. Moreover, HIV does not cause the symptoms your are experiencing.

If you are not currently receiving treatment for your GAD, I highly recommend that you do so since that appears to be the primary cause for concern at this time.
