    Hello. I recently got a negative 14 month hiv1/2 test. I'm still concerned because I've had angular chelitis. I'm more concerned about HIV-2 because I've read that seroconversion can take a lot longer. There was an article written that said there were a couple people who tested negative for HIV-2 antibodies but positive for HIV-2 virus. They said it may have been due to the virus being more mild that the body may not produce antibodies. I'm extremely concerned. Isnt angular chelitis considered to be a form or oral thrush? I know oral thrush is a huge indicator of HIV. Someone please help

    No, Angular Cheilitis is not a symptom of HIV.

    I've read that angular chelitis is a form of oral thrush. Although my angular chelitis has always gone away within a few days with no medication. Is it always due to yeast infections or are there other causes?

    Read the article I attached above.
