I woke up on thursday morning with a sore throat and a cough, on Friday morning i noticed a rash on my face and it is still there. Has any one had a reaction like this?
Six days ago my throat began to get sore and by the fourth day it was extremely sore to swallow. So I went to see a doctor, he told me that I had a viral infection and sent me home with no medication. The next day (yesterday) I started to get a rash on my forehead, it started like little pimples with white tops. Within an hour it had mostly spread all over one have of my face although there was a tiny bit on the other half.
It doesn't really hurt, my face just feels a bit hot. Could this be anything to do with HIV? The sex worker said she had no STD's or HIV and was tested regularly - she was right about being clear of any STD's I suppose. What are the % chances of this sex worker having HIV? i.e. - 1 in 100, or 1 in 200 etc etc?
He said she had what is called gutate psoriasis, related to a form of arthritis. the rash can come on with just a sore throat of a fever that is related to strep. Her rash lasted about 1 yr and comes back in a lesser form every time she grts a fever.
Hey guys I had unprotected oral with 2 girls about 2 and half months ago and then had with another gil i had unprotected vaginal sex about a month ago 2 weeks after last exposure I got a runnynose,sore throat, sneezing, and coughing no fever. A few days later I noticed a red rash looking thing across my chest wasn't sure if it was a rash or not because I get red in face and neck area easily when upset and I was upset at the time. Then it appeared again the next day after a hot shower.
I had a probably low exposure risk about 14 days ago. About 3 days ago I got a rash on my face and neck (especially around the collar), but not on my back or chest. I had no fever, sore throat, lymphadenopathy or anyother ARS symptoms. The rash in worse on my left side than right but (diffuse --both sides), It is very severe and incredibly itchy/sensitive. The PA who saw me in the ER said it was likely Poisen IVY/OAK/or Suma. He started me on oral steroids (prednisone).
I went on a whole slew of different penicillins over the next 6 months to kill off whatever was on my face, which then went to my buttocks. A throat culture then determined "Overgrowth of C. Albicans", but no symptoms were present i.e. thrush, etc except ring-worm in the buttocks area. That resolved mostly after several bouts of diflucan. I was tested negative for HIV three times.
Under his nose is also red with some bleeding and crusting, maybe just from being dry, but could be related. He was sick last week with a head cold and sore throat, but seems fine now. Is this simply the same hormone related acne of teenagers? And if so, will it go away? How to care for it? Or is it something more? Thank you in advance!
my child has fifth disease, and now has a very bad sore throat. They tested him for strep but that came out negative. Can fifth disease cause a sore throat, bad breath, and swollen tonsils? He has also developed a rash on his ears.
I am now freaking out because I thought I have come face to face with death. When I look back, I regret so much the act with the escort- it was a moment of temporary madness. It should never happen again. It was my first time. Should my HIV test return positive, that will be the end of my world....Do you think my symptoms could be due to something else and not necessarily primary HIV infection? I need urgent answers.
My son is 4 and developed a rash 5 days ago. It started with just a patch of skin on his face hear the nose and mouth. We applied hydrocortisone cream to see if it was just an allergic rash. The redness has gone away, but spread over his face. It is like rough skin, almost sandpaper feeling, that you can't see till you are up close to him. He is perfectly fine, no fever, no complaint of sore throat. Please tell me your take on this. Thank you for your time.
The fever went away in 24 hours, the rash does not itch that bad, but is still very prominent. My nine year old son had a fever for three days last week with a sore throat. He had no rash. My doctor is on vacation and I don't want to bother the exchange since I feel much better. What could this be (I also have had all the childhood diseases - measles, roseola, etc.)? What can I do to clear it up?
Hi, Swollen lymph node could be due to common cold, sore throat or tosillitis. It may or may not be related to the rash on your face. I would suggest you to get yourself examined by a physician.
I do not have a fever or rash, no night sweats or swollen next nodes. Just sore throat and for a few days runny nose and sneeze The doctor gave me a week of penicillan started 3 days ago but this has not had effect. He did not seem worried about HIV, though when I seen him throat was not severe as it is now Its just I cannot understand this throat and the skin before, the penicillan should have worked if it was a bacterial infection.
The palmer surface of my hands get very red and warm as well as both cheeks and bridge of nose. The rash on the face and hands is red, warm and feels like a sunburn. The rash on my legs(and sometimes on my arms) is violet/red and blotchy. The rash is not palpable, red/violet in color, blanchable, and non-pruritic. The joint swelling has been fairly consitent, while the rash will improve and then worsen multiple times throughout the day.
My 4yr old son has been sick for the last week with a fever, cough, congestion, joint pain, ringing in his ears, and now a rash on his face and sore on his arm. I noticed last week that his cheeks were flushed but I figured it was from the fever but now that the fever is gone, the rash on his face noticable. The rash looks like little bumps but all together in a bright red circle with some of the little red bumps are on his nose and lips. The rash is also dry and flaky.

My hubby just got over a really bad cold and sore throat....Jeremiah seems just fine, thankfully. This morning he did wake up with his right eye a little puffy looking. (not sure if it's allergies or what) I have had allergies lately. My eyes will itch and water out of nowhere, then I will be fine. I hope little Ava is okay and that she is not sick. That would just be awful!! The other day went to a lake to do some fishing and we brought Jeremiah along.
6 weeks ago my 12 year old daughter woke up with what looked like a rug burn on her cheek. The next morning, there was another spot on her other cheek. Basically, for 6 weeks her face keeps getting new spots. We have seen 2 peditricians and 2 dermatologists. They do not know what it is. She was on Keflex for 10 days, Duricef for 10 days and Cipro for 10 days. We have been using Bactroban ointment continuously until this week when we started using Altabax ointment. Still, no improvement.
Prior to this I had dry throat (with an itch on the left side and in my ear) with periods of mucus running down. The night before the sore throat I had a mild headache. Should I be worried?

This disease tends to occur in the winter and spring but can occur year-round. The disease can cause a low-grade fever, headache, sore throat before the appearance of rash. The earliest specific sign of the disease is often bright red cheeks thus called slapped cheeks disease. Sometimes the child may have sore joints with the rash. I would suggest you to get your child evaluated from a dermatologist/pediatrician and get other viral infections ruled out.
I woke up with a sore throat neck swollen and tender, headache, and just achy.. Then next Day same thing but had a rash all over my body. Light pink dots everywhere.

Ive been taking lamotrigine for about 2 weeks and I know its associated with some serious rashes.
no risk for HIV. HIV cannot spread through oral sex period. if you concerned with your rash, check with dermatologist, but it has nothing to do with HIV.
The second day into the sore throat I broke out in an eczema like rash along the triceps of my arms. I didn't have it anywhere else. It started to fade after a couple of days. Then Sunday I was outdoors with a short sleeve shirt on and the rash on the backs of my arms reappeared. By evening I also had it on my thighs along the sides of both my legs, obvious but not wide spread. I was wearing long pants.
I am very scare now, I have search some photos in yahoo. The rash on my face does looks like the maculopapular rash. The color is light pink. Someone please help. Can ARS rash just appear on the face or on both face and trunk?
The acute retroviral syndrome (ARS) usually includes various combinations of sore throat, fever, skin rash, lymph node inflammation/enlargement, and sometimes other symptoms. But it would never include only one of these. In other words, acute HIV would never cause rash alone, without other symptoms. Also, the rash of ARS doesn't itch. An itchy rash often is due to allergy, and it sounds like you have a lot of potential factors that could trigger allergic rashes.
Other symptoms may also develop, including painful ulcers, sometimes be confused with canker sores, fever, and sore throat. The outbreak of the rash you have mentioned seems to be more like an allergy.It can be treated with oral anti-histamines and Calamine lotion applied to the area. If you get rash which resembles fluid-filled blisters associated with pain and tingling then you should be concerned because you may have been exposed in the asymptomatic phase of your boy-fried's infection.
