Do Corticosteroid Drugs Affect The Results Of HIV Testing?
Hello. I want to ask … does the use of ointments made from Clobetasol propionate like lotasbat affect the results of HIV tests … is it false negative or false positive huh?
Hello, good night Mekelichen ...
Clobetasole propionate is a corticosteroid class of drugs. This class of drugs is given with the aim to relieve inflammatory reactions and suppress the overwork of the immune system. Corticosteroid drugs are divided into several levels, and Clobetasole is one type of corticosteroid that is classified as strong. The use of steroid drugs has immunosuppressive side effects (decreases endurance), so long-term use of steroid drugs without doctor's instructions is not recommended. The results of HIV testing are not influenced by other conditions, including infections, drugs used, food / drinks, alcoholic drinks, mouthwash, and the time of the examination.
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
