Hello! So I was just diagnosed with Molluscum. I have tons of them all over on shoulder, arms, legs, trunk. I have within the last 3 months been sexually active with a few different women.
The Molluscum started showing up about a month ago and a few weeks later spread quite rapidly. I am not showing any other symptoms. However, about a week before the Molluscum appeared I did have an upper respiratory tract infection with a fever. I currently sometimes experience some congestion or a VERY mild cough. After the Molluscum appeared I got tested for HIV when it spread to my arms. They did a blood test and it came back negative. Is it at all possible I have HIV that is just not detectable yet? As I said I had been sexually active as little as 2 weeks before anything started and as far as 3 months.
I was told that it shouldnt be HIV because I tested negative after the Molluscum had appeared. However, I am still worried because I have soooo many of these bumps on my body. They say it is caused by weak immune system and I cant imagine any other reason why my immune system is weak. And again I have the bumps of Molluscum all over but still tested negative. Should I be worried at all about HIV? Are there any cases where someone tested negative after seeing tons of Molluscum on their body but were indeed infected with HIV?
Thank you so much for reading over. I look forward to a response.
