Our expert says:
1. Your symptoms really need not necessarily be HIV, but the fact that you're woried about it may indicate some risk of exposure in your life. Do consider getting tested for your own peace of mind. Is there anytning else causing you stress (which could lead to these symptoms?)
2. Because your immune system is low when you have HIV at a certain stage of development, wounds do take longer to heal. Wounds could however take longer to heal for other reasons too.
