please help me , I did a CMIA test
Sir,

I fingered a sex worker, whose vaginal secretions where sticky and dry, I had no apparent cuts or open bleeding wounds on my index inger while fingering ,after 1 to 2 minutes, I felt so low of my self that I ran out and rinsed my hands in a cup of water but I didnt wash them say like soap or under a tap.In another 1 or two minutes I headed to a nearby medical shop and purchased a germicide with an alcohol base and opened a new bottle of this germicide, but the metalic lid caused me scratches( like a paper cut),there was not much bleeding though I felt the burning on pouring dettol(germicide) on those scratches/papercuts. After 7 weeks I was advised CMIA test which was negative. but I have a bad sore throat after 2 weeks which is persisting for more than a month and a half now.Is there reason to panic as the vaginal secretions were almost dry during the scratch, Should I take further tests , What are my risks now am i in danger, Am I safe, I indulged in no other sexual activities.Please help, the docter said not to worry but my sore throat persists.Are the tests reliable.

A Chemiluminescent Microparticle Immunoassay (CMIA),is an advanced antibody test technology and is reliable. However, you never required a test because you never had a risk to begin with.

EVERYONE has floaters at one time or another. We just notice them more when we are worried about our health. Visual secondary infections to HIV are usually very advanced ones - you would have other symptoms first.

SO RELAX!

Elisa was the earliest test. i don't know about the newer tests - been retired since before the Milleniumn and decided to stop following the literature - too depressing. So there may be a valid medical reasons for doing a particular test.

And  Arif: also, relax; HIV is delicate outside of the human body. It was probably dead by the time you paid or the detrol.

Elisa is still one of the tests of choice is the USA.
