Aids symptoms skin lesions

Common Questions and Answers about Aids symptoms skin lesions


Avatar n tn Very last question before I go to the doctor. In addition to the white lesions in my groin area, I have been getting thrush on my tongue about once every other month for the last 6-9 months including a current episode. When going through the various STD symptoms, I saw that frequent thrush was a symptom of aids as the immune system is weak. I don't have an explanation for the frequent thrush and I don't have a clue what the lesions in my groin are...are these symptoms for aids?
Avatar m tn I have many of them left on my skin after being ill with aids in 2012. The kaposi is cured but some of the lesions have left brown pigment under the skin. They do not seem to fade anymore. Are there any treatment options that could work? Thank you very much!
Avatar m tn hello , i saw here that u told a guy that Skin contact with genital moisture doesn't carry much risk, certainly not for HIV guy that wat u mean by that i mean in dry sex u mean that aids cant be of a dry sex?
Avatar m tn Equally important, your description of yoru skin lesions is consistent with a number of skin conditions other than KS. And as you have been told, your exposure a year and half ago was low risk for HIV, if I correctly understand that it did not include penile-vaginal or penile-anal intercourse. Finally, I have to wonder why you are spending time and energy trying to figure this out on line. Presumably you have not had an HIV test, or you would have mentioned it.
Avatar n tn Moisturizing is one of the most important self-care treatments for sufferers of eczema. Keeping the affected area moistened can promote skin healing and relief of symptoms. Let us know if you need any further information. It would be advisable to consult a skin specialist for your symptoms and a proper clinical examination. Let us know if you need any other information and post us on how you are doing. Regards.
Avatar n tn I have noticed that the skin around my eyes has become green it is more noticable sometimes i also noticed that the skin underneath my eyes looks like its sagging. I know that symptoms never matter when diagnosing someone with hiv/aids. My last sexual encounter was 3 years ago (vaginal intercourse) i am a male. I also have a white coated tongue for 1 year and little red spots on my skin, not to many, that make skin itchy and i also feel like i have something sticky in my throte.
Avatar n tn However you should not be worried about that unless you see lesions. Read the Expert STD forum for descriptions of symptoms. You should get in the habit of getting tested for all STDs including Herpes every year or six months, especially if you have multiple sex partners.
Avatar n tn I think the purple spots around eyes in hiv are KS lesions with is a type of skin cancer, this would be a latent stage of hiv
Avatar m tn Would skin cancer remain as such on a person's skin for years without any change?
Avatar m tn is pink skin lesion a symptom of aids.. and how long do the acute symptoms last???
Avatar m tn I am worried that the shorts could have irritated the skin and her fluids might have gotton in by there or by the inside if the pinus. Like I said, the only thing I saw that was wet was the shorts.\ and dr answred Skin contact with genital moisture doesn't carry much risk, certainly not for HIV. Conceivably herpes and HPV might be transmitted, but even those are low risk. I don't recommend getting tested for anything unless symptoms show up.
Avatar f tn Has anyone had small, very hard, white lesions, deep under the skin?
Avatar m tn Chinahand, wow, maybe that's what this was. Thanks very much for your insight. But why would she only have it one her legs? Looking at pics on the web it appears that most people have it on their back primarily? And Doctor, if you could weigh in, I'd feel a lot more at ease knowing that birthmarks are not symptoms of HIV/AIDS. Reason being, I read somewhere that as one's immune system is compromised with the disease, increasing numbers of birthmarks are possible?
Avatar f tn I don’t have any kind of Hiv risks but I have all the symptoms of aids,my tongue is white always ,I have white lines in my cheeks it started about 5 years ago and still is.
Avatar m tn Welcome to the forum. The title of your question indicates you have concluded your and your partner's pimple-like skin lesions are molluscum contagiosum. However, I doubt they are. MC of the upper body (face, trunk, etc) is very rare in adults; and when MC does appear in such locations in association with HIV, it is only in people with very advanced AIDS. If that's what you had, you and your partner would be deathly ill, with a large number of other symptoms.
Avatar n tn Also doctor, if i do test positive for one of those STDs, am i likly to have HIV since they were able to get through a intact condom?
Avatar m tn for about 6 months, after dozens of cryofreezes I have been without lesions for 5 months. The question is, if I remain abstinent can it come back (chances)? Am I immune to it now? At least 5 doctors have given me different answers on whether you are immune to it after having it or not. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Hi Yes, the lesions are the molluscum bumps .We use the term lesions generally for any skin growth or markings. It is very much a general terminology. I would not recommend peroxide or alcohol. They are abrasive and they would dry up the skin. The virus resides in the epithelium or the outermost layer of the skin. Your physician would remove the white substance and use cryotherapy or electrodessication to completely remove the 'lesions".
Avatar m tn I will get tested at the appropriate 3 month mark, but do these symptoms sound herpetic? With absolutely no pain or other symptoms and redness/flaky skin?
Avatar f tn How can MS lesions and migraine lesions differ (I believe two leisons were 6mm but all others are smaller? I've had headaches but only one that was surely a migraine in 2013. No family history of migraines either except my aunt who had a brain tumor. I definitely do not have a tumor but a 15mm polyp in my right maxillary sinus cavity at the bottom that looks like bone in the middle of it. ENT doc asked if I had an dental implant in which I do not.
Avatar m tn Hey , I had dry sex (sex on clothes he was with panties and im with panties and pants ) and i see that their panties sometimes are wet from their penis and i scared that it could make AIDS transfer to me I asked a doctor he said its cant but here i saw the doctors answer to someone who asked similiar question : heres the guy question : I had what I would call, dry sex. I had my cordoroid shorts on and a the women had her underwear on. She was on the top and rubing.
