Still worried as getting lot of throat troubles

Have had two tests one at six months and another at 1 year. First test didnt look just right as could see slightly red mark on the edge of the testing line that being the second line. Was the test negative? Second test 6months later negative. Still worried as getting lot of throat troubles

Hi Robert y Thank you for contacting us. It is difficult to comment on what you described you saw in the first test, however, in general we would only consider a complete line across the test strip as a line. Given the negative result on your second test it leads me to feel very confident that both test results were negative. I do not think that your throat conditions are anything to do with HIV infection. I hope that this answers your question and helps to put your mind at rest. Kind regards Gary Carpenter BioSure (UK) Limited
