I am HBV positive and DNA/RNA negative, what to do?
Q: I am HBV positive but DNA/RNA are negative. I got my wife screened, she is HBV negative but she has some pimples on her skin and she has daily fever. Please advise what tests are required for her? I learnt that treatment is possible. How can I get my DNA and RNA positive so that this disease could be treated? Further, is this disease related to AIDS? Please also advise the best medicine to be taken for early recovery and good health?
A:1. Since you are DNA negative, you do not need treatment. There is nothing you can do to become DNA positive. 2. For the pimples on your wife's skin, you should have her seen by a dermatologist. Also it would be safer if she was given a full course of hepatitis B vaccine. 3. Hepatitis B is a different virus infection and is NOT related to AIDS.
