Confused

My HIV test result after three months was negative but just yesterday I have noticed a very dark red (almost black) patch of skin near my left armpit. It's flat, doesn't heart or itch. It like a circle and a bit smaller than a ping pong ball and there are two three tiny circles around it. I have pain in my both hands and feet almost all the time. Though the pain is bearable but irritating. Apart from these I don't have any other problem. The thing when I was scared of HIV before getting the test results I didn't have any of these problems but I had other problems which went away after getting the result. But these current problems are there for more than almost two months. Does it have anything to do with HIV? Was my result a false negative? I did my test result in Miri, Sarawak, Malaysia. Though I have heard and read in lots of place that a test result after three months is not likely to change but the doctor told me that only a 6 months test result gives conclusive result no matter what. Another doc told me three months result should be fine. I don't know what to think right now and why would I have these weird problems. I really need help and advice on what to do and think. Please reply asap.

Re: Confused

You were advised in your previous thread, you were not at a risk of an HIV infection, and you had protected sex. You were also advised that listing your ailments on a HIV board is of no benefit to you, they cannot be commented on within this setting.

Speak to a doctor about your red patch of skin; it has got absolutely nothing to do with HIV.

The only reason for false negatives is if people test too early, you didn’t. Your test, which you did not need, is conclusive you do not have HIV.
