Dear Stressed Dude
Complete the course of antibiotics - it will take about a week to clear up. Drinking lots of water may improve symptoms but will not cause the infection to clear up quicker
The HIV PCR test is accurate - will cost about R300. A PCR (R300) plus a viral load test (R850) can determine infection at approximately 30 days after contact
