Hiv rash timeline

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv rash timeline

hiv

Hi Everyone I have a question about the average time frame from initial exposure to HIV to the ARS illness. Is it possible to develop the flulike illness 4-5 days after exposure? Or is that too soon??? Is it more likely to happen a little later? Please help folks, any advise is appreciated.
Sep 08 oral sex 20 Oct catch cold (runny nose, sneezing, mocous drainage) 17 Nov feel tired, yawning alot 24 Nov break out with dry rash on back (only in the middle from top to bottom) I feel good when waking up in the morning, then about 3 or 4pm, i start to yawn, then about 7 or 8pm, i feel fully alert again. 1. Can ARS skip that far apart or does it all come at the same time? 2. What is the normal timeline for ARS if you do get it? 3.
5-6 days is not even the time frame for ARS. You can't use symptoms to give an indication for HIV.
If you cannot have HIV, your rash cannot be due to HIV. How much more strongly can I say it?? See a health care provider to find out what else it might be. This is my last response.
I have had vaginal itching in different areas for 2 days followed by frequent and urgent but not painful urination (have problems with UTIs and this is different). I haven't gotten any bumps or rash or redding of the skin yet, but I imagine they are coming. What is the timeline on developing lesions from the initial itching stage? Also, what is the liklihood of getting meningitis or some other complication? Please help.
Even Planned Parenthood, a breath of fresh air in all of this and where I received confidentiality, respect of privacy and a no cost HIV test has limited walk in hours available for STD testing other than HIV. This should be a lot easier and people in trouble should have better sources to turn to for clarity, care and guidance. Again, thank you for what you are doing.

her to penicillin, as she is mildly allergic (gets a rash)? I know that the only 100% foolproof answer is going to be, wait and see the results of her second test. But obviously, I'm concerned about this NOW, and we won't have her next test results 'til early next week. So I'd like to know, in general terms, what kind of odds I'm dealing with here. Thanks.

The article (http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/211873-overview ) also gives a rough timeline of the different stages of HIV infection. Day 0: A person is infected with the HIV virus.
At 6 week, I got another negative elisa test (should be 3rd generation too). At 43 days, I started checking my chest for rash, and I found a small patch of redness on my middle upper chest, just below my neck, I would say about 5cm in length and 2cm in width. It is flat and not raised, no pain, no itchiness, no irritation, infact it feels the same as normal skin. It could have been there before but i never noticed. It is still there today.
I know you would say my exposure was no risk from reading other posts, and I was willing to let it go, but now that I've developed a rash just over 2 1/2 weeks post possible exposure I'm really losing it! My possible exposure was about 2 1/2 weeks ago when I was out in front of my house and a guy introduced himself to me and shook my hand. Afterwards I checked my hand for any cuts and sure enough on the back of my hand where the guy's thumb pressed, I have three small cuts.
My concern is that sometime either during the relationship or after bf adn I broke up, I got a rash on my chest. I recall it itching, being given a prescription and it cleared right up. I cannot remember the timeline when I got it. It could have been anytime. I have a tendency to get hives. BF and I were together for almost 3 months, both in mid 20's. In the past 12.5 years, I don't recall any symptoms except that possible rash and severe anxiety.
This all came about since I had a sexual experience by which I believe I have contracted HIV. All the evidence is pointing that way as far as seroconversion but my hiv tests come back negative. I find it highly unlikely that I have anything else since my illness coincides with the sexual episode. Unfortunately, no other doctors take me seriously because when I tell them of my medication, they think its all in my head.
The chest area starts itching - upon itching, rash appears - once rash appears, the rash is non-itchy ii. no itching in chest area - rash appears out of nowhere - it is: a. flat b. non-itchy c. pink/red b. how long does it last? c. does it move from one spot on chest to another? d. Is it flat or raised? 2. ARS related FLU: a. is there any way to differentiate a flu from cold or allergy b. is runny nose a symptom of flu c.
Could anyone please confirm these things: 1. Correct me if I am wrong: Is it right to assume that if I am not bleeding actively during kissing, I do not have any risk of hiv infection from kissing. I mean even if I have inflamed, swollen and reddish gums on tooth edges but nno active bleeding going on from there. 2. Also, I need to confirm 1 more thing which I think might sound stupid. I have read in the past as well that saliva de-activated hiv virus.
If i have definatly been exposed to the HIV virus and i am experiencing all the symptoms of acute HIV syndrome exactly and according to the timeline most doctors provided....is there any chance i still wont end up having HIV for the rest of my life?? i have never tested positive but i was exposed to the virus about 2 months ago. i am also infected with herpes and had a open sore at the time of contact. after 16 hours i was put on PEPs. my symptoms include.....
Please tell me whether my exposure was high risk, and please tell me whether you believe that my symptoms (based on timeline) are consistent with primary HIV infection. In other words, should I be worried? Thanks a lot for the feedback.
#1. does this sound like ARS? #2. Do I need to worry HIV from this incident? #3. When to test if yes?
Okay, so here's a timeline of my symptoms. Every time I look stuff up, I get really scary possibilities, so I'm hoping someone can confirm or deny them. Sep/Oct - itchy, red rash on groin, thighs, arms, torso; doctor gave me Nystatin/Triamcinolone. It went away but came back in early December Dec 23 - severe diarrhea, gas & bloating. The gas & bloating was the worst, most painful i've ever had. It went away within 48 hrs, but the diarrhea has continued. Dr.
What bothers me is that I've developed an extremely severe sore throat and a rash all over my abdomen at about week 5. The rash is red and blotchy and comes and goes. It extends down my arms. Here is a link to the rash: http://img534.imageshack.us/i/20100420125936.jpg/ The rash does not stay, it comes and goes and moves around. It tends to come more when I'm hot. I've also felt quite warm lately despite having no fever. I'm very worried as I've also been suffering EXTREME night sweats.
Something other than HIV is the cause of your rash-- and it doesn't sound like an HIV rash anyway. And no, it is not possible for HIV to cause a rash as the only symptom. "I know my risk was very low but can I be certain it was a NO RISK?" Yes, of course. If HIV could be transmitted by shaking hands, it would be 100 times more common than it is and it wouldn't be considered an STD. "I'm just so so scared.
As many have stated, neither your symptoms nor their timeline indicate early (ARS) or chronic HIV infection. The sores might suggest herpes (HSV-2), which is fairly common. The discharge is not suggestive of HIV, but it definitely requires diagnosis by your OBGYN. Chlamydia, gonorrhea, and HPV are possible causes. (HPV is extremely common and most sexually active are carriers. It has recently been linked to cervical cancer. HPV-6 and HPV-11 cause genital warts).
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.
You posted this in HIV, we don't discuss HIV here. Also we don't know anything about medication pricing. All over is different.
I have a question regarding oral symptoms of HIV. White tongue thrush and general disorders discussed on this site (below) and many others. Taken from here: http://www.hivdent.org/_oralmanifestations_/oralmanifestations_OMHAH0502.htm I am looking for more informaiton on this, not the symptoms them selves, as these are listed below, but the time scale over which they occur. I realise that most concern on this forum is around ARS, when this occurs and what is likely to happen there.
Here are the usual statistics that are used to describe risk when people have had an exposure to blood or bodily fluids when the source patient is HIV positive. Risk of seroconversion to HIV+ after exposure to blood or bodily fluids from a HIV+ source patient: 0.03% With mucous membrane exposures (for example to the eyes), the risk may be even less.
When a person suspects his or her own symptoms are due to anxiety, almost alway s/he is right. There simply are no symptoms that point exclusively to HIV. Every symptom of HIV occurs much more commonly with other things. The best thing you can do for your mental health is to immediately stop reading websites for HIV symptoms.
dont go thinking that every time you get sick or feel bad that it is hiv. have you NEVER been sick before? we are human...we get sick! what do you mean by you noticed the condom had come off a few times? was that during withdrawal? not being funny here...but maybe you should buy a smaller condom...seriously :) in order for a condom to work correctly...the right size needs to be worn too. you had a test at 6 weeks...and that is a GREAT indicator of your final result.
