Should I retest?

I took an oraquick exam. Negative. Now I am unsure if it could have been a false negative. It's been 6 months after possible exposure. Should I take an antibody test? Right now I have a very big red spot on my arm I know it's a symptom to something. Could it be an std? I have googled and no std looks like this!

I'm just scared maybe it was a false negative or invalid. The test was very expensive I don't think I can afford it again

I want to put it the past but I didn't understand my results. If your possitive you will have a t line, faint or dark. No matter what you are sopposed to have a C line, but my C line was faint. I called the support number they said the intensity doesn't matter with the C line it's the T that matters. Idk I just want to drop it I would take the test again but it's so expensive

Re: Should I retest?

You never had a risk and therefore (as Apollo told you) this discussion is pointless.
