Someone fingered my anus and four weeks later I got what looked like a ring worm. The internet on some sites states that ring worms can be a sign of hiv.I got a rapid antibody test at 6 weeks and a third generation test at 7 weeks.Do you think I am ok or do I need to test again?They both were negative.
Persons with advanced, not recently acquired HIV can sometimes have severe fungal infections which are hard to treat. In your case, you have strong evidence you did not get HIV from your test results. Most ring worm occurs in normal persons and you are most likely one such person. It is most unlikely that your ring worm is a result of the contact you describe. further, as I said above, your test results provide strong evidence that you do not have HIV. I would not be based that you have ringworm related to HIV.
I see no need for further testing, particularly if your exposure 7 weeks ago was only masturbation ("fingering").
