Hello, thanks for the question.
HIV is a virus that can attack a person's immune system so that his immune system will decrease and be susceptible to disease. HIV can be transmitted from one person to another through bodily fluids, such as blood, sperm, or vaginal fluids. Usually transmitted through sexual contact, syringes, blood transfusions, or from mother to child she is carrying. HIV is not transmitted through saliva, sweat, touch, or mosquito bites. HIV testing is recommended for people who are at high risk of being infected by HIV. Examination by detecting antibodies or immune substances or detecting viral antigens, ie proteins produced by the virus. In general, it takes 3-12 weeks before antibodies can form in the body. HIV testing using the CMIA method detects antibodies and P24 antigens, which can be done as soon as 14 days after exposure but should be repeated again at 3 months to confirm. Your examination 15 months after your last exposure showing a non-reactive result can indicate that you are not infected with HIV. To avoid infection with the virus, you should avoid risky behaviors or actions, avoid changing partners and use condoms during intercourse to prevent sexually transmitted infections, and also avoid sharing needles. For complaints of eczema, you should consult a dermatologist, the doctor will conduct a direct examination of the lesion and conduct additional examinations if needed. Handling will be tailored to the cause of the complaint.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
