Hey Dr. Owen, I have recently have been worrying constantly

Customer Question

Hey Dr. Owen, I have recently have been worrying constantly about hiv for no particular reason, I have had an on and off relation ship with this girl who I found out has had a number of partners. I first dated her August of 2014 and got back together with her April of 2015 until November of 2015. I stared a job late November that requires me to be in constant contact with water and throughout the day I need to put my arm in water that contains soap and then water that is hot and contains a little bit of bleach. Since stating that Job I've noticed a rash on my right arm that is slowing getting worse. The rash is red dots on the forearm that goes away after not working a few days but comes back whenever I'm in contact with the soap water. I have also lost 15 pounds from August 15. I started working out and this job has me working for 7 hours with little tome to drink and eat on a daily basis. This scare is worrying me constantly and can't get it out of my mind. Please get back to me
