    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    No. Even assuming any of this blood came from someone who was HIV positive, it is important (and should be very comforting) to understand the this virus is an extremely delicate critter outside the body and dies very quickly outside the confines of the body.

    The fact you were placed on antibiotics for two weeks would imply that your sore throat was due to a bacterial, not viral infection (HIV is a virus).
