Hi. No, the HSV infection you have will not interfere with the HIV testing. The viruses are not the same, and neither are the antibodies. If by chance your HIV test is positive, it wouldn't be a false positive from your being infected with the HSV virus.

I have hpv and hsv too do you do you tihnk it is likely to acuire hiv as well ? am i at risk ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

also i want to ask you if there is any good cure for hpv or hsv2 i have tried valtres 500mg once a day whenever i feel it will come but its not working anymore kindly suggest me some good medicines or creams for hpv and hsv thank you.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Still the same answer--the viruses and the associated antibodies are totally different. Obviously, since you have two separate sexually transmitted diseases you are at risk for being positive for HIV also since they all are contracted by unprotected sex and whomever gave you the HSV and HPV also had had unprotected sex with someone else. There is no cure for either HPV or HSV but for you I would suggest Famvir 250 mg daily and not just when you feel it coming on
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

you mean to say i should take it everyday ?the famvir 250 mg it will not affect any side effects ?

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Sorry for the delay--if you're having frequent outbreaks it's best to take a suppressive daily dose. That's safe and without side effects

can you expalin me the test is doen by eclia


 


is that result okay ? do i have to worry about it ?

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Sorry for the delay--the test is negative--you don't have HIV so you can rest easy about that. The test is for HIV antibodies and nonreactive means you don't have any. I would appreciate your giving me a positive rating on my answers for my service to you
