Well, one of my children got a terrible one at about age 6, and he is fine. He's 17 now and didn't have HIV then and doesn't now.
I have also got a crack in the corner of my mouth that is slow to heal. I keep re-breaking it. I used to think that was due to poor nutrition but someone told me it's due to dry air. Are you in a part of the world affected by recent cold weather? Indoor heat and cold weather can be very hard on your skin and mouth.
You keep wondering if you have HIV when you've had a hundred tests that say you don't. You are worse than me
See my thread nearby. Forsest By the Sea Lady left a helpful response but I was thinking, "Yes, but what if is it a slow-growing thing that takes years to cause harm..."
See, I am almost as bad as you are.
