Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

I'm being very truthful with you here--I don't see anything abnormal in any of your photos

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Am I in the risk. I took the blood test on 16 and the result came back as non-reactive. I know it is quite early to do the test. But I don’t really know my condition now!’
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I understand doctor. I am just very scared.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

Did you discuss this with your doctor?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
but the doctor told me to take the blood test on 31 of this month.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

What did he say about your risk?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I don’t really know. But she said it’s better to do the blood test.
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I am just so worried.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

I understand but for now you just have to work on this terrible anxiety you have

As I've told you before I'm certain you're negative

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
the thing is on 7 of October the sex worker gave me the oral sex with condom for like 4 Mins and then she put the massage oil in her vagina and then we had sex for lilemore or less 10 Mins.The thing is when I ejaculated in ghe condom she kept having sex for like 30 sex.I am so worried about getting HIV.And I am worried in case the condom has broken when I ejaculaed in the condom and kept having sex.
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I know I’m just asking way too many questions. Thank you for the patience as well doctor. Cause I really need help.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

The condom didn't break

And I wish I could do more to relieve your fear

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
This is the oil she use to put in her vagina before we started to had sex.
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
This is the oil
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

That really shouldn't be a problem for any condom

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I don’t need to worry anything ? About the tiny lumps on my tongue as well
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
will the blood test be accurate if I take it on 31 of October.Since I was in the possible exposure to HIV on the 7 of October. Will it be still early?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

As I said before--nothing abnormal on your tongue

But that would be too early right now

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I should not take it on 31 of October?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

No--now would be too early

But the 31st of October would be the proper time to test

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Umm doctor. I wanna ask more question.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

Sure

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Supposed if I get HIV and I knew it early ,can I cured it!
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I can’t really get HIV. I am the only son in the family. And my family is too conservative and traditional.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

I really don't like to deal with what if's--that's never useful

But these days HIV treated early on is not a death sentence

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Is this normal as well. I think the tongue is getting hairy?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

Looks totally normal

HI Doctor Chip
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

Hi there

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I got the urine test result and it came out chlamydia positive.I am now confused am I getting higher chance of HIV
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

What did your doctor say?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
As you know, because I got the thing on my upper lip as well which is now getting more and more visible. But it do not hurts or itch.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

Yes but what did your doctor say as regards ***** *****?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
The doctor just told me to take Azithromycin 2x 500 mg in a single dose.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

No--I mean did you discuss your worries about HIV with him?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
after that I went to the sexual clinic and told me to take the blood test on 6th next month. But he told me I am not in a risk of HIV.But I am still confused on how did I get chlamydia and any chances of getting HIV
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
The doctor on sexual clinic told me that I used the condom and it should be fine. But why am I getting chlamyadia?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

Have you had any episodes of unprotected sex lately?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Umm, I had protected sex with a sex worker on the 7 October which I am pretty much worried about now.But I had unprotected sex with my girlfriend on 7th September but I guess it would be too late for chlamydia to show up now.What I know is chlamydia show up within 2 weeks or 3 weeks. So in this case I think It is more related to the sex with sex worker.What about your thoughts Doctor?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

Actually it probably is from your girl friend--she may be what's called a carrier--not infected herself but able to transfer it to you

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
But Doctor, it is already more than one month and I am just wandering the chlamydia infection should have shown earlier.?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

Not necessarily

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Sorry Doctor, what do you mean?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

The symptoms can show up a month or even later after the encounter

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Oh so you mean chlamydia is likely from my girlfriend? and what about the thing on my lip?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

Yes

But the thing on your lip isn't any STD of any kind

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Doctor I want to ask one more thing.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

Sure

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
After I took the 2 Azithromycin single dose today at 1pm, I felt stomach ache and was sweating after and hour of the medication. And till now I am feeling kind of nausea, headache and loss of appetite. Now I already had 2 times diarrhoea after the dose.Is it normal or is the medicine not effective after diarrhoea? Do i need to go and see my doctor very soon about these case?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

Those are fairly common side effects of the azithromycin and the diarrhoea won't affect its action

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Doctor so how do I manage the thing on my lip? What do I need to do to get rid of that?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
is there any medication to prevent from HIV, in order to get the best result when I take the blood test?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

Can I see your lip again?

And there isn't any medication to change the results of the HIV test

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
doctor, I’ve attached the photos.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

It looks like a tiny benign cyst and nothing serious at all

You could try either Retinol or RetinA for it

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
do you mean I have to apply that cream on it? Or will the thing get away by itself?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Because the doctor told me I should apply Zovivax only when it breaks
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

Usually these go away on their own

I don't think it's a cold sore so I wouldn't give you the Zovirax

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Ok Doctor, and I have heard about Pep Medicine to prevent HIV? Is it ok for me to take it?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Because the thing on the lip is just getting slightly bigger and I am just kinda worried.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

That's only effective if taken within 72 hours of possible exposure

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Doctor so lastly what do you think of me?Am I in the high or low risk of acquiring HIV? as I got chlamydia.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

Very low risk but I'd go with zero risk

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Thank you Doctor.
