Avatar m tn I recently got a rash on my chest, below my nipple. It's a series of small raised red bumps (very close together) - maybe 12 -15.

Avatar m tn A day and half later I had a sore throat and when I worked out I had a red rash on my arms and chest. It would only come when I worked out and it was red, not itchy, not raised, not bumpy. That week, I had a cold like symptoms and very low grade fever (99.5) with other cold symptoms, including a cough, but not much mucus (no runny nose). Two weeks later, the rash appears in the same fashion but just on my chest and not itchy, not raised, and not bumpy.

Avatar m tn Two days ago, I started getting mildly itchy, and developed a red 'spotty' rash over my body - beginning with my chest and spreading to my back, legs, arms and hands. I visited a doctor today and was given a blood test which proved negative for Dengue, but suggested a Low Wbc count, Low Neutrophil, High Lymphocyte, High Monocyte, and High Eosinophil. The doctor concluded I had measles, (or an allergic reaction), but also brought up the possibility of HIV - which surprised me a lot.
Avatar m tn Dear all, Is there anyone to explain me how a primary hiv rash looks like? I am worried alot regarding the rashes over my shoulders., Thank you.
Avatar f tn I also jumped in a freezing cold pool on Saturday 2/21 which was a very bad experience, im thinking this is cold Urticaria from the cold water. 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 I was advised no risk but I have been having this burning rash on my chest that is red for about a week, at the 2.5 week mark from the incident. I have had no appetite and am convinced this must be ARS. How could this not be an exposure I just know my 3 month test will tell me otherwise. The rash does seem to be less intense sometimes and more intense at others. It is at its brightest red when I am wearing a shirt, and seems to almost vanish when I am not wearing a shirt but still slightly red.

Avatar f tn How long does hiv rash last? I still have the rash until now .its been 1 month and 1 week. I have been stressed out since sept 25. I never experienced high fever only the rash.
Avatar n tn I have read the 2 -4 weeks and there are of course topics that say that everyone is different and that at 8 weeks one can still possibly get the rash. What no one seems to mention is if the rash occurs like all at once or gradually starts to flourish over a period of a week or days. Then some post say usally at the upper torso, the chest area, face, and rarely the extremities. While others say it can occor on the legs and thighs an buttocks.
Avatar m tn "so ur saying all of those situations are pretty unlikely?" Yes but not for the uprotected sex with your gf since you cannot assess one's HIV status without testing. " also does the rash sould like an hiv rash? " No. DM or DXM cannot transmit HIV. HIV symptoms appears 2-4 weeks after potential exposure not on days.
Avatar m tn and your symptoms are not typical for a new HIV infection. The rash of a new HIV infection doesn't behave as yours has. But as already discussed, these things don't matter anyway.) So my advice is that you continue to work with your doctor about the various symptoms. My impression is that they reflect some combination of a systemic non-HIV viral infection (maybe infectious mononucleosis?
