Avatar n tn What is an acute HIV rash? does it look like a sunburn rash, pimples outbreak rash, does it have some kind of guidelines? Any information regarding this would greatly be appreciated. how long after exposure does symptons come and how long do they general stay?
Avatar f tn My question is, what does an HIV rash look like? After a week or two I broke out with three raised red bumps on my chest. Didn't look like acne that I usually have. No itch to them. They just looked weird. I took a test weeks later but it came out negative. Now after research I'm thinking that it might not have showed up on the test. How soon will it show up on a test after all the symptoms (bumps, headache, fatigue, etc.) have passed?
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 f tn I am a boy who had unprotected sex on sept 17 2015 and on day 10 after sex encounter started deep tiredness, on day 14 started numb all over my body and itchy inside penis tube with clear discharge ( look like rain water) and itchy around anus, and on day 17 started severe headache and fever, on day 19 started itchy rash on my torso( face, chest, back, shoulder, arm) and blood test on day 19 for HIV came back negative ( also my partner tested for HIV one day before sex and his result came back
Avatar n tn What does an acute HIV rash look like? I have these red spots on mostly my legs and ankles and only randomly on my arms, not really my stomach. They tend to itch. I don't know if it can be associated with ARS or not. I don't really have any others symptoms such as fever or fatigue, just this rash thing. I don't want to mistaken it for Posion Ivy or poison oak if it is really something more serious. Can anyone help? ps...
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 does anyone know what a rash during seroconversion would look like...also.. could constipation be included in this...
Avatar m tn (So maybe slightly high but not drastic). I still continued to feel fine but it took the rash like a week to go away. It does seem like 3 days after the rash developed I woke up in the morning covered in sweat. (not sure if this is a night sweat). At the time I dismissed it as nothing because I never really felt sick. I'm wondering if I shouldn't have. Any one with any input or more knowledge on the subjects opinion would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn Does the HIV acute rash always appear at the same time as the onset of other symptoms, or does it appear in a more piecemeal way, perhaps after other symptoms have resolved? Also, does the rash always appear with a fever? I have had no fever during this illness. I feel as if this must be acute HIV infection, and that my doctors, by simply giving me an antibody test, are not doing enough to help me.
Avatar m tn how does a hiv rash look and where would it be? i something that looks like a rash on my chest but really looks like goosebumps but a little darker than the rest of my skin.
1092101 tn?1256959649 first question, what are the realistic chances something like this could really result in an HIV infection? Second question, does my sickness sound like Acute HIV infection? I should have asked the doctor when I was there in the first place but I’ve doubted myself as paranoid. 3rd and major one is, When is the soonest I can get tested? I’m not sure if the anti-biotic drugs/infection will interfere with the ability to take the test. Thank you for your time!
Avatar m tn What does a HIV rash look like? I have a few small pinkish red spots on my left shoulder/collarbone. There are no more than 10 spots and each is like the size of the tip of a needle. They feel like goosebumps in a way but they're not. They don't itch either. Is an HIV rash localized like this? Or is it more generalized?
Avatar f tn I also jumped in a freezing cold swimming pool on Saturday 2/21 which was a very bad experience, I m thinking this is cold Urticaria from the cold water or allergies. Doctor I am worried this could be an HIV rash, what does that rash look like and feel like exactly, should I be worried? Note that I have had these skin issues before due to stress, drinking and bad food called dishydrosis, but never to this extent.
Avatar m tn would appreciate your honest answer on the above doctor if a) this sounds likes ars rash and b) some sites say al over body rash..what exactly is all over? C) what does it look like. Man thanks in advance for your answer Doctor.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have a question related to HIV rash, and HIV in general. In the period of last four months, I had unprotected oral sex twice with two partners (I was the one giving oral sex). First one was before 4 months, and the second 4 weeks ago. Im not sure how long after the first sex I had fever 39´C and throat problems, I went to see my doctor, he said I had strong sinuses problems and otitis media and gave me penicillin shots.
Avatar m tn I have sensitive skin so have constant blemishes and red patches over my chest and neck, now with the pimples combined, it didn't look good, just looked like some of he HIV rash pictures. My lymph nodes started to feel sore in my groin and under my arm so that walking was sore. I also developed sore throat, and that run down fighting a virus feeling.
Avatar n tn Go back through the archives of this forum and of the body. Look at the 100's of posts like yours of people with low/no risk hiv/std exposures who them, despite the dr's telling them there was no chance, can back and said, "Dr, you were wrong. I got an STD and or HIV"....you can't find ONE!!!!

Avatar n tn Exactly three weeks after I did it my body began aching, head hurting, sore throat, or in other words all the symptoms one would expect with the flu... I have rashes between my elbows which simply look like a common heat rash, but as I'm young and am very worried, I wonder if I'm simply working myself into a state. Are these likly signs of HIV and how unlikly is it that I contracted it while wearing protection?
Avatar m tn I would appreciate it, if you assess my risk of a single exposure in my life time and if my mentioned symptoms are side affects of my medication or are they related to Acute HIV Infection or any other STDs?
Avatar m tn Your symptoms don't resemble those of acute HIV infection. The first set of symptoms you describe is simply a cold (and they came on way too early anyway), and in the second set you don't mention fever, which is almost always present in those who develop ARS (and not everyone does). Even in people who have classic ARS symptoms, the vast majority turn out to have a garden-variety virus- you can't go by them because they are non-specific.
Avatar m tn Can anyone offer me some insight into the possibility that I had AVS caused by HIV? Does anyone know what percentage of cases of AVS present with the maculopapular rash that I didn't have? And what about the pericardial effusion? Why hasn't it gone away yet? What could cause the lymph node above my jawline to become larger? Could this have just been an infection by a typical virus--an enterovirus of some kind or something?
Avatar m tn The next couple of days I was still weak but then it got better. Does 24 hour flu symptoms are also similar to “typical” acute HIV infection? Or the “flu” every expert mentions stretches for a longer period (i.e. multiple fevers)? I am extremely concerned that I possibly got infected with HIV and I obsess with it because it is too soon to go test myself (because of the window period).
