Hiv rash arm
Common Questions and Answers about Hiv rash arm
I know my exposure was not high (unprotected oral and protected vaginal, all in the span of 5-7mins)
This exposure was on dec 5th 2007... 1 year and a month ago
Recently for like a week and a half Ive gotten a little rash on my right and left arm... On the right arm it's like 3-4 spots in a circle
On the left arm it's like red spots... Kind of a poison ivy rash but not that serious... Theirs no itch or bumps or blisters
Through out the whole winter I haven't got sick once...
I just recently today was itchy in my arm and I kepted scratching it . Later I had 4 big and inflamed red spots on my arm. And also one on my hip which I also scratched too and also one on my right arm near my armpit that I scratched . Could this be a symptoms of HIV ? Or jut or inflamed due to me scratching my skin ?
Some months back i had two sexual encounters with some females in which the condom broke before ejaculation, about 1 month later i developed 2 small rashes on my left leg, both of my legs were sore, and both of my hips were sore and I also had a headache and some sorenes in my neck. Those symptoms lasted close to a month, and now I have a rash on the back of my arm, its not red, but it's a rash. Its been almost 3 months since my last sexual encounter w/ the condom breakage.
I had rash on my rear arm. There are like black dots some how, look like some sort of rash, does that look like hiv rash? They're only at my rear arm, below my shoulder, above the part that a short sleeve t-shirt covers your arm, can that relate to hiv?
I had unprotected Sex back in February and now am afraid I might have contracted HIV. 3-4 weeks ago this rash started on my face and is now on my arm. My arm has just started itching within the past week and hurting. I woke up this morning with a swolen lymphnode on my armpit of the same arm. I do not have or have I experienced night sweats, fever, sore throat, flu like symptoms. I have read so much over the Internet im making myself sick.
I am a married low/no risk male. 1 month ago, I underwent a TB test as part of a work related routine physical. I had the test on a Friday and had it read the following Monday in a somewhat dirty little occupational clinic. The TB test was negative. A few days later I noticed pain in my left arm pit which was the arm I had the test done on.
Hello, can you tell me about AIDS window period rash style and quantity, and how long will it last? I am an unprotected intercourse on the back skin rash, in the arm, leg, back, buttocks, has lasted for a month, but no other symptoms.
I have not seen anything on my palms or feet. I now have a red rash on my right arm toward the elbow. It is very red and there might be some little red dots along there somewhere else on my arm. I am getting very concerned that it is a maculopapular rash.
I had a risk of hiv infection and and later on i noticed a small rash on my left arm it was reddish and raised and had 3 little scab like marks on it. and it didn't itch. It later disappeared and left a slight brown mark on my arm. Only other symptoms I remember having was muscle aches.
I am really worried about HIV? I am due to get tested next week but need a few questions answered first -
after my possible infection I had no symptoms 2-4 weeks except symptoms of gonharia which I got antibiotics for and went away
12 weeks after possible infextion a red blotchy rash appeared on my chest which was not itchy but when squeezed clear puss came out and I also had loose stools, this went away after about 7 days.
The reason I ask is because 3-4 months after i developed a rash under my left arm which got resolved with canestien cream, and then i got a rash under my right arm (same rash), This rash looks very typical of a yeast rash under my arm. Also i have had a few blood blisters in my mouth though these appear after eating. When applying the cream I can feel tiny little bumps under my arm. I also 6 months after this got two red dots on my chest.
I get a red mark on my skin on my back (just one) and a couple red dots (bright red) on my arm and I think again, oh no hivrash. I am waiting for the results (2-3 business days) in agony. I dont think realistically i have hiv but the disease honestly scares me.
Just out of curiosity, when does HIV rash usually appear? I am 10 weeks out. Also, does the rash go away and come back? Again only answer if you wish.
The rash associated with HIV is commonly known as a morbilliform, or macular rash. It is very measles like in appearance...and commonly spreads along the trunk of the body. Its not always present with acute HIV infection. There are other conditions that can cause a rash with this kind of appearance. Yours doesn't fit the profile. The best thing to do is to not self diagnose. You should consider seeing a dermatologist.
After the 8 weeks from the exposure brown and black skin rash developed in my back side, neck, and arm-phits. Some time some rashes in red. No itching. I have also white coated tongue. But no flue like sympthem.
I then shaved my under arms since it was very painful and found rash under the arm which was painful to touch so I used cortizone cream on the rash. Went to see the IM doctor and told her what happened and she assured me that the incident will not transfer HIV through the toe. She prescribed Mupirocin 2% (anti bacterial) which she though was a inflammation of the underarm. She did not find any abnormal lymph nodes.
I went to the doctor and wasnt sure what it was, so she asked another opion from another doctor and they devated that it could either be scabies or moth-feet-armrash but they let me go unsure of what it was. they gave me a cream and said if it was scabies it would help if not to go back..
