Acute hiv rash symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Acute hiv rash symptoms


2214843 tn?1339326026 What does the acute HIV infection rash look? Are they a cluster of small bumps or apart? Two days ago, I got about 8 red rashes on my left arm. They are red spots, sparsely distributed, about 2 inches away from each other. Now, they are fading away. Are these possibly caused by HIV infection? What do the acute HIV infection rash look? They they appear in big amount and multiple areas? Do they keep growing and spreading out? How long do they last?
Avatar m tn I now have a rash 3 days after all over my body. No other symptons. Could this be acute HIV symptons?
Avatar f tn Possible exposures: sex with man (status unknown), with condom, just over a month ago. Almost two weeks ago, oral sex (giving and receiving) with a different man (status unknown), ejaculated in my mouth both times. Nearly a week after the oral sex, I woke up with a swollen throat and red, sunburn-like rash covering my groin, buttocks, breasts & surrounding area, but it didn't itch and I no fever. I had slept with a tampon in, and was concerned about TSS, but had no other symptoms.
Avatar m tn one quickie and i'll happily end the thread, so 8 weeks is to far down the road for any type of HIV rash, and does the RASH always have other symptoms as well?
Avatar n tn Now, day 14 all crusts have fallen and i see some spots (like scars)... Does this resembles HIV acute rash? Can it be confused with chickenpox? Should i get tested? Thanks!!
Avatar m tn Oral sex (and kissing) are NOT a risk for HIV. Oral sex CAN be a risk for other sexually transmitted diseases and it is recommended that anyone who engages in oral should have an STD panel done every three months for prevention.
Avatar m tn The other is can a rash unaccompanied by other symptoms be a sign of HIV, no fever , flu like symptoms, or other signs. I did have a slight loss of appetite and stiff shoulders (most likely from worry)? I did something stupid and exposed my self to a person of unknown status. I am now very concerned about being infected. I will be taking a test when I get back to the US. At that time it will be 7 weeks since the incident.
Avatar n tn What worries me is that these symptoms are also typical acute HIV symptoms in a typical time frame. Generally speaking I am never ill so am worried this infection is acute HIV related. I am hoping the infection was due to the travel, alcohol consumption, kissing the girl or cunninglingus with the African girl. I intend to get tested once three months has passed from the African girl, but in the mean time I am looking for some reassurance to reduce my worrying.
Avatar m tn I have questions 1_tonsillitis in acute HIV infection how is it common, and are there characteristic features of HIV tonsillitis? 2_weight loss in acute infection can occur?? 3_if we assume that my tonsillitis was due to HIV,after how many days it will return back to normal size? 4_lymph node after how many days in acute infection will disappear (maximum time) 5-my rashes coming and going ,rash of HIV is like that?? 6-how much the chance to get infection by one time vaginal sex? Note.
Avatar n tn 1 i began Anzithromycin @ 250 mg (5 day plan), since treatment i have began getting mild hives and now have a cold sore in my mouth, i also realize that one of the side effects of Anzithromyicin is rash, but the rash is non localized and is similar to hear rash apearing lightly on arms and chest. im worry and my fear is that i some how may have contracted HIV as rash is one of the symptoms i blowing things out of proportion given the known side effects to the medication i am/was on...
Avatar m tn Is it acute HIV related? Can you share with me the temperature of an Acute HIV fever? Hope to hear from you soon.
Avatar n tn If HIV is your concern, based on the experiences you have had, contracting HIV is along the same line as winning the Powerball, especially if your test was after 4 weeks.
Avatar n tn I have some symptoms if someone can help me,i am so scared. after reading HIV acute infection knowledge. 1.I have headache ,like a throbbing headache which is not gone yet after tyneol 2.I have gastric problems,not diaherra but feeling of diary and gastric and gas passing problem 3.I have left arm paining are these symptoms good sore throat but a feeling no cold no rash uptil now. do symptoms come one by one,or some come and some dont right.
Avatar n tn 1) Does this rash sound like the typical symptoms of acute HIV? Is it normal for it to disappear and reappear over a 4 - 5 week period? 2) Are other symptoms normally present? I think I had a headache for two hours once during this entire 4 week period. No other symptoms are / were really present. I know, I know... i really need to be tested, and will. I am just so nervous that I am curious what your experience is with this rash and if this sounds like acute HIV or likely something else.
Avatar m tn I know because of the unprotected sex with the stripper I need to test. My question these symptoms I describe sound like acute HIV? Thank all of you in advance for advice/comments.
Avatar n tn I know oral sex risk is low but if she gave me herpes should i be worried about hiv ? Are these symptoms typical of anything else? Is there any kind of test like PCR where i can get quicker results or is it possible to get a quicker turn around in the hospital?
Avatar n tn All together, the chance you acquired HIV during that exposure was astronomically small and it is very unlikely your symptoms are due to HIV. On top of that, if you had acute HIV, your fever and other symptoms would still be continuing, typically for a couple of weeks. So it is much more likely that you caught a garden-variety intestinal virus, exactly as the ER doc said. See a health care provider if your symptoms persist.
Avatar f tn I was wondering if you are in fact having acute hiv symptoms and you do have hiv is it possible for the test to show up positive early as 2 weeks or the absoulte soonest 3 months. Can u have symptoms n it show up positive before 3 months or the result may not be accrate before 3 months even tho u may be having symptoms. Thanks.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar f tn I am stressful one or two weeks before these symptoms appear but the stress didn't focus on HIV but on other matter ( study and financial) then one or two weeks after sex encounter I started fear and stress on HIV then everything ( acute HIV symptoms) started to appear in me one u one , sometime it happen altogether like fever and headache and rash something else which mimic acute HIV symptoms. Please advice ! Thanks!
