my results were all negative

Well, you should not worry at all.

You are completely safe from all these incidents, and I don’t feel the need for re-test at this time.

As you already have been tested, 3 times in 3 months, by method of 4th generation HIV test and by Rapid hiv test.

These all tests, are very accurate. You have gone tested at right time.

Please stop worrying. You are absolutely safe.

This sore throat, is just a common viral flu. It is self limiting in nature.

You can Gargle with hot, saline water - mix 2 teaspoonfuls of salt in 1 glass of hot water and gargle thrice daily.
You can go for Steam inhalation - Take a bowl of hot water, and put 2 tsf of salt in it. You can also put menthol in it if you have some. Inhale the steam that rises from the water.
You can Drink a glass of warm lemon juice daily.
You can suck on hard sweets - the saliva trickling down the throat will be soothing.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
