Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Do you have a history of risky sexual relations? Do you use drugs with unsterile needles?
Acne (acne vulgaris) is a chronic inflammation of hair follicles and oil, which causes symptoms such as the appearance of blackheads, brunts, to cysts on the face, neck, back, and / or chest. Acne usually occurs in adolescence, but can also last for years to 20-30 years. There are multifactorial factors that affect the appearance of acne, including: hormonal, genetic, excessive production of oil glands, bacteria in the skin pores, diet, stress, etc. In general, acne cannot be used as a reference sign of HIV / AIDS infection.
Sources of transmission of HIV infection include:
Sexual contact, both heterosexual and homosexual, through the mucosa (mucous membrane) genitals
Blood, blood products, tissue transplants / needles, syringes
Vertically from mother to fetus / baby through infection during labor, birth, or breast milk
To find out if you are infected with HIV, it is necessary to have an HIV test. The examination is carried out using blood samples to identify the presence of HIV antibodies. Examination methods carried out include rapid tests, ELISA and Western Bolt. There are several things that affect the accuracy of HIV testing, including:
History of previous diseases that also affect the functioning of the immune system, for example: autoimmune diseases, leukemia, and other malignancies
Consumption of corticosteroid anti-inflammatory drugs
The window period (window period) is a period of time where antibodies to HIV have not yet formed so that it cannot be detected on examination. This causes someone who has actually been infected with HIV to get a negative result on examination. The duration of time ranges from 3-8 weeks since the infection occurred. Although antibodies are not detected, the patient can still transmit the HIV virus during this time period.
If you want to do an HIV test, you are advised to consult directly with your doctor or internist in order to get counseling about HIV testing, diagnosis, and treatment plans related to the results of the examination. As a suggestion to prevent HIV transmission, you should avoid risky sexual relations or the use of illegal drugs. To enrich your horizons, you can read articles about HIV testing.
