Hiv rash pictures symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv rash pictures symptoms


I mean this could be anxiety but i just want to make sure. Does anyone know if this is what HIV rash looks like? I saw pictures of KS and it looks nothing like that, but do these sound like anyting i should be worried about? I am going to get tested this week to hopefully ease my mind, but I just want to assure myself that I am not positive before i go.
1) can ars rash come after you had cold symptoms and they went away? does ars rash come by itself? 2) what are my chances that I have HIV? are my symptoms typical of ars? 3) could my rashes be caused from birth control if i also have gotten side pain since ive started it? 4) do people have symptoms during the latent stage of HIV? 5) What percentage of people get ars symptoms?
I have had no other symptoms what so ever. Do you think this could almost definatly write off HIV and Syphilis? I will get tested anyway but just want some assurance.
sorry if i ask question in here... but do hiv rash comes along other symptoms... because i still have this rash in my arm...
// Please disregard the big red bump on the left side of the picture, as that is an ingrown hair I've had for ages already. I'm really hoping you could help me, since I've been in such an anxiety funk lately. Thank you.
hiv is NOT transmitted through oral sex. if you are having health concerns...see your's not hiv related.
Does the labcorp ICMA test detect HIV-2 in early exposure as effective as HIV-1? Should I go get a HIV-1 again AND a HIV-2 PCR test from labcorp? I'm to the point where money doesn't matter. I want my life back. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Hey Doc, Ok so here's my story....I did something stupid and had sex with a commercial sex worker about 3 months ago. It was protected, but I had a slight rash around the base of the penis at the time (I believe it was jock itch) so I am leaning to believe vaginal fluids could have possibly entered my body that way. Anyway, I have not experienced any flu-like ARS symptoms such as fever or night sweats but just recently, I have gotten a maculopapular rash on my entire back.
and the large majority of CSWs in Singapore don't have HIV anyway. Your symptoms are not typical for HIV anyway, and an ophthalmologist has already examined you and given you a diagnosis unrelated to HIV. In any case, HIV test results always overrule symptoms and exposure history, so even if you had had a substantial exposure or typical symptoms, your negative test results prove you didn't catch HIV. Ten weeks is always sufficient time for reliable testing.
If your rash had been due to HIV, your PCR taken any time after the appearance of the rash would have been positive. Finally, while symptoms of early HIV may include a rash, they are typically are accompanied by a number of other symptoms including fever, sore throat, and muscle and joint aches. You need not worry. I hope my comment help you in that direction.
Secondly, you mentioned that you have had multiple partners over the last month - I am assuming these were unprottected? Symptoms - Your symptoms alone cannot be a case for diagnosis. I have view the pictures and they dont seem to look like anything too sinister. That being said, I would have prefered to see this 'blister' on the shaft of your penis - this seems more like something that can be connected to an STD. What to do now? - Doctors. You need to do two things.
You have already been advised and been told that "HIV rash" or HIV symptoms in general are NOT useful indicators to diagnose infection. There are no "pictures of actual HIV rash" because it varies in everyone, if they even get symptoms at all.
I have pictures of the rash which I will put links to on the bottom. The rash itself does not really have to many whiteheads, although there are a few, very very tiny whiteheads. For the most part it is pink-reddish and is non itchy and seems to be coming and going in some spots. In certain spots it has very tiny dark red spots, only about 4 or 5 of those, which you can see unless you look closely.
Often different sites and opinions don't distinguish clearly between a newly infected person's rash to an hiv rash later in hiv stages. Online pictures are often unclear as well. I'd actually say they're more unclear than the written information. I understand symptoms should never be used to diagnose and that's not my intention. Can a single raised/seemingly symmetric bump very closely resembling an early acne bump suggest accute hiv infection? Can several of these suggest it?
1) Is it possible to catch hiv from one exposure (male to female transmission) 2) I have heard that one of the most common symptoms of hiv is a rash that can develop shortly ( 2 weeks) after exposure. Several websites have shown pictures of these rashes. I have some red itchy marks on my body the last week, they are not really itchy.
you have reason to think your friend has hiv????? it's highly unlikely she does...most ppl dont.
i have had a rashes thorough out my body. can somebody tell me what it could be. the pictures of my rash can be seen in the following link. would highly appreciate your comments.. regards.
Thank you for the message Joe 147- My main issue now is that I can not explain my partners new leg rash....I have seen pictures and it does resemble HIV rash. Again I had an ELISA at 4 weeks when I had all those symptoms myself- continue with some muscle fatigue. Although it might be stress induced- my partner and family has become my main concern now.
I have posted two pictures of the rash at around 6 weeks into my user profile. I have read that if the ARS rash occurs it would usually be accompanied by other symptoms such as fever and severe sore throat: "When people get the acute retroviral syndrome (ARS) they do not have an isolated rash. Rather the symptoms include fever, muscle aches, sore throat and diarrhea. People feel quite sick." - Dr. Hook, Acute HIV Rash?!
I wish there were good visual sources of primary hiv infection, such as the rash. I'm surprised there isn't more pictures, regardless of the lack of confidence one can associate to symptoms.
Could the protected oral sex be the cause of the symptoms? Didn't these symptoms sound like Herpes symptoms? I heard that hand-to-genital transmission is possible for Herpes and HPV, could this be one of such cases? What could possibly be the case, and what kind of STD tests would you recommend? Thank you in advance for your help.
At the time I thought I had restless leg syndrome although now I realize it was likely due to HIV. I am really trying to be optimistic but when my symptoms speak so loudly it is very difficult to do. 101 fever, night sweats, diarrhea and nausea (for 24 hours), swollen glands, no appetite, extremely weak... Anyone have these symptoms and end up being fine? The scary part is these symptoms were not in my mind I went to a Dr...
I have oral symptoms that have not gone away. Pain on the bottom left side of my mouth with bumps that I can feel with the tip of my tongue, but I can't see them because they are along the base of my mouth. What can they be? Who can help me? I was very frustrated after having gone to two dentists, a family doctor, and an std specialist. The first dentist didn't see anything, the next dentist prescribed me an oral rinse and said it might be herpes. That didn't work.
Statistically speaking, your risk for HIV is low. The symptoms you describe are consistent with HIV, but also with any number of other conditions, generally not serious. On the other hand, you say nothing about (and may not know about) possible HIV risk factors in your partners, e.g. sex with other men, injection drug use, etc. By far the most common cause of genital sores is herpes; that's a pretty good bet for "1-2 sores on my vaginal area" that "went away in a week".
You cant really see them but you can see it when you are close to the arm. I included some pictures of it. i do not think they are keratosis because some of my family members have them and mines looks different. They get more itchy when i scratch. is it hiv, std? is it scabies? I noticed it at the end of may. and 2 weeks before that i received oral sex after a party. i also was in a pool for 2 weeks. i had to touch people because it was a life guarding class. i dont thinks its from a plant.
