Early hiv rash pictures

Common Questions and Answers about Early hiv rash pictures


Avatar m tn hiv is NOT transmitted through oral sex. if you are having health concerns...see your doctor...it's not hiv related.
Avatar m tn When trying to figure out what this rash was, I stumbled onto pictures of the HIV rash, it looks very similar to what is on me, which is FREAKING ME OUT! My rash is pinkish, and barely raised off the skins surface... When I first noticed the rash 7 days ago, it looked slightly different than now, it was a bit more pink at that time, and it had like 5 or 6 dots that looked similar to very wimpy pimples with no puss...
Avatar m tn 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.
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 m tn 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.

Avatar n tn Hook already explained why this is not an HIV rash. In addition, heterosexually transmitted HIV remains rare in Sweden, especially in Swedish nationals; heterosexually transmitted HIV in your country is largely limited to immigrant populations from Africa, eastern Europe, etc. And you obviously understand, intellectually if not emotionally, that you are not at risk. I agree that a rash that comes and goes so quickly is probably hives, i.e. an allerfic reaction to something.
Avatar f tn On top of all of this a few weeks ago I developed a dark red dotted rash on my back near my bra. It lasted a day or two but it was a significant rash( I do have pictures if it helps). I have tested HIV negative at 6,10 weeks, I have had mutiple STD tests of my cervix and throat, blood work..all of which were negative. All at 10 wks post last exposure.
Avatar f tn 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.

Avatar m tn ,Is her symptoms consistent with any std that I have not checked or checked too early for, i have read tonsilitus is consistent with oral std?is it to hiv? could the rash and sore toat be bcz of the medication taken for tonsilitus? 5)The black spots I saw on western blot do they mean the same as bands or its just some simple contamination?(PLEASE TELL ME IF THERES ANY WAY I CAN UPLOAD PICTURES BCZ I WOOULD LIKE SO SHARE SOME. 6)HOW much clearer picture will PCR GIVE?
Avatar n tn Your 4 week test would have been expected to have detected at least 85-90% of infections acquired 4 weeks early and is strong evidence that you do not have HIV. Your 6 week test, which I anticipate will be negative, would detect over 95% of HIV infections acquired 6 weeks earlier. I am confident that you do not have HIV and that your next test will confirm this. In the meantime, try your best not to worry. The likelihood that you have HIV is very, very low. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn everyone seems to be really interested in stopping the itching and not getting rid of the rash, has anyone rash completely cleared up? i've got the same thing on mine half of it has dried and is flaky the other is still spreading, its come up pretty quickly over the last week and a half. i've had the tatt for 7months now, and like most of you i've been getting tatts for several years which are not affected at all.
20817617 tn?1521532028 Hello, well we are not doctors on here but I am a microbiologist. You have quite a medical history. I am not an HIV expert. If you do have HIV were you tested and confirmed positive? If so then I don't know any particular doctors in Los Angeles but these links might help: https://www.keckmedicine.org/positive-care/ https://www.cdc.gov/std/hiv/stdfact-std-hiv-detailed.htm The CDC has other things on HIV that might help. I personally don't look at links off of MedHelp.
Avatar m tn I am terrified about HIV now because I have a rash on the back of my hand that looks a lot like the Accute HIV rash that I have read about and seen pictures of on teh internet. So my first question is if it it makes sense that the HIV rash would show up just on ycommon (or unlikely) for the HIV rash to show up just on the back of your hand even if it is not on your back, chest, or anywhere else?
1277632 tn?1327598315 Thank you. But when do symptoms of early HIV infection usually appear in most cases?
Avatar f tn It only lasted a dayor two but it was a significant rash( I do have pictures if it helps). So far I have tested HIV negative at 6 and 10 weeks, I have had mutiple STD tests of my cervix and throat as well as blood work....all of which were negative except HSV 1 antibody. (All at 10 weeks post last exposure). My fear is that the lymph nodes, although small are very persistant, the bumps on my throat(lymphatic tissue) and the symptoms I attributed to stress could also be signs of HIV.
Avatar n tn My mother (a nurse) says that it might be a rash. All the pictures I have seen about early HIV skin signs show something that looks more like a round or scattered splotch. I've talked with most of my recent partners and most have been tested or are people I had sex with at one point before I got tested last time too(the results came back negative).
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn Throat added on 15 day on, pain under the rib - 16 day. Please, please tell me is it possible to start HCV and HIV symptoms as early as 9th day? - beginning of second week. Can HCV test be accurate after only 17 days? I know HIV probably wont.
Avatar m tn I was a teenager in the late 70s early 80s. That is when HIV was first coming on the scene. I developed extreme anxiety toward it. The result was therapy. The exposure was sitting in an AIDS clinic on my lunch hour. I am no longer bothered by HIV. In fact I will tell you a story about donating blood because I do that all the time.
220090 tn?1379170787 However, HBV and HIV only reproduce within cells. HIV uses the DNA of the host cell to reproduce. HCV reproduces free in the bloodstream and not within a cell. This makes HCV much easier to treat with PIs since the virus is exposed during reproduction and the other two are hidden. This is the reason it is possible to cure HCV with a PI, but HIV and HBV are not curable with PIs.
Avatar f tn Either has my steady bf, who if I am infected, would probably have hiv as we've done it unprotected many many times. Also, I have no rash or fever, I can't feel my lymph nodes and my friends tell me if they were swollen Id feel them easily. However, I have this weird itch all over but no bumps or flaky skin, just generally more itchiness. My main questions are: 1) what does this sound like?
Avatar n tn my 11 year old son had a virus on Thanksgiving 5 days later he started itching from head to toe no rash no hives nothing. we started him on benadryl and calamine lotiong, not relief so the Doctor gave him allegra and cortisone, no relief. Then the dermatologist gave him a shot of kenalog, and prescription cortisone. still no relief after two emergency room visits they gave him hydroxine and blood workups for kidney, liver, and thyroid came back normal.
Avatar m tn I saw a bottle of that in my contact's bathroom cupboard. I thought it was mouthwash. It's for Herpes I presume. The rash in the photo (day 63 one) in my profile has re-emerged today in the same place (looks like shingles) and a scaly rash on my feet. I spoke with someone at the HIV charity today, the senior worker wasn't in. Their interim relief was in and they said they had to get tested to 6m, per GUM clinic recommendations for significant (i.e. actual) exposure.
Avatar m tn The symptoms of early HIV typically do not begin until 2-4 weeks following exposure to an infected partner and the rash you describe is not the sort of whole body rash that we see with early HIV. I urge you not to worry. You need not be concerned and have no medical need for testing.
Avatar m tn The results were (negative) as I was expecting since its way to early. I cant stop looking at pictures and symptoms of HIV as I know the girl will not tell me the truth. (she says shes clean) Its stressful knowing I cant get a accurate test until June.
Avatar n tn website give minimal information on acute hiv rash and show no pictures to what they look like. I have been tested for HIV on March 12th exactly 2 months after unprotected sex that was negative. I have taken a Blood Count to see if there in infection on March 20, 2008. the results were negative but my thyroid levels were extremely low and I was given a thryroid panal to see what exactly what it is.
Avatar f tn My question is with these symptom, and given the tests I’ve had, what are my chances of having HIV? I’m worried about HIV-1 and HIV-2 and Hep C or B because of the liver pain. Also I should note I had diagnosed sarcoidosis around 3 years ago which cleared on its own. I’m scared it has affected my antibody response. I’m terrified, please help. Thanks.
