Hi Frightened5, Any result after the 12 week window period is accurate and conclusive. Usually people begin to seroconvert around 3-4 weeks after their exposure. Additionally, a rash that is associated with HIV usually appears on the chest and even then, only around a third of people who are HIV positive get this kind of rash. Personally, I would not retest and would try to put this behind you, your negative result at 93 days should be taken as conclusive. Kindest regards, Becky, BioSURE LTD
