in september i had met a previous iv drug user and we kissed heavily alot, the last time i met him i had a cut inside my mouth on my cheek where i had bitten it, about a week later i hadba fever andba cold sore , then recently i have eye floaters got an eye exam everything seems normal. i had a antibody test at threee weeks it was negative, he had a oral test done over three months since last possible exsposure and it was negative, concern is my daughter used my toothbrush a day after this exspeience and now over nine weeks later she has a high temp , dry cough and sore throat . what are the chances she got something from me hours after i used the toothbrush and what are the chances his test was wrong due to not having antibodies, i also had a elsa test done at 37 days and was negative do i need to worry?

Your partner has tested negative for HIV. He does not have the virus to pass on to you in any shape or form.

The fact that your daughter used your toothbrush a day after you kissed the guy plays no role in why she developed a fever, cough and sore throat nine weeks later.
