4032307 tn?1349159298 Dear experts, I have a couple of questions about symptoms of HIV , I know usually symptoms are useless ;) but symptoms usually (such as rash and fever) appear 2-4 weeks after exposure, right? (if not, correct me), already I am at 7th week post exposure and I had my ECLIA test at 7th week and it was negative, 2 days after test, I began to feel a couple of symptoms such as rash on my neck , Sore throat, one Mouth ulcer, pain in my lymph gland in left armpit and joint pain ...
Avatar m tn so if a person who guess infected with hiv but in six weeks he hadnt any fever and flu-like symptoms and other early symptoms so his immune system is weak or strong?
Avatar m tn Do oral problems manifest in the early stages of hiv?? Is it normal to be suffering symptoms for 7 weeks if this is seroconversion?
Avatar f tn yesterday i saw white patches or nodules on my swollen tonsils (it never happens before) and it is a early symptom of HIV. i don't have any symptoms like fever,tired feeling,Swollen lymph nodes,Joint and muscle aches,rash. (i saw from that site http://www.aafp.org/afp/990800ap/990800d.html ) i hope it is not cause of HIV but if it is then what will show 4.5 week HIV test result ? will it be positive ? if the symptoms are showing it that mean body already produce enough antibody ?
Avatar m tn I have to wait about 3 months for a blood test, but the wait is just killing me. I've been reading a lot on the early symptoms of HIV and I seem to have a lot of them, but I haven't had any night sweats, swollen lymph nodes, or rashes on my hands and feet, and I would think an HIV rash wouldn't appear only during a shower, but I honestly don't know.
936016 tn?1332769204 Many of the questions we answer on this Forum and also the Freedomhealth Sexual Health Forum relate to anxiety about HIV and also possible early HIV symptoms. One of the main problems in relying on HIV symtoms themselves is that they are notoriously vague and almost all the symptoms may in fact be symptoms of a different disease. The best method always of diagnosing HIV is to have a modern HIV test.
Avatar m tn no risk at all.those symptoms can be from anxiety or other viruses and bacterias but not HIV.
Avatar m tn I am having rash on my body when i woke up early morning and while coming from my work ? This symptoms i have more than 6 weeks ... what is the reason?
1180329 tn?1265434588 Hello, From the symptoms the rash looks like typhoid fever and not HIV because skin rashes in ARS do not present so early. But to confirm the diagnosis investigations are needed. Many people do not develop symptoms after they first get infected with HIV. Others have a flu-like illness within several days to weeks after exposure to the virus. confirmation is only done by specific tests for HIV like western blot,PCR and ELISA.
Avatar m tn I am quite worried that I contracted hiv and am very scared. Is this a typical hiv ars rash..most sites say if a rash appears its usually 2 - 3 weeks after infection takes place. Is this true and does there usually be other sysmptons too..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 f tn Anyway what I am worried about is that I have just developed a sort of itchy, round spots (not raised) rash on the upper part of my back. Is this an early symptom of HIV? What does the rash look like? Where is it usually found? How soon does it start? I am really stressing so do you think this could be stress related instead?
556087 tn?1226599014 No it was to early to develope symptoms that early and as you know you can't go by signs or symptoms. If you want to test which you should test at 6-8 weeks post exposure and then do a 3 months conclusive test.
Avatar f tn The chances are low that you were infected as you went in protected-test only for peace of mind @ 3 months if you need to, otherwise you should be fine.
Avatar n tn Rash from any systemic infection/disease will always normally come with other symptoms. Even if you had a fever with your rash that still does not point to HIV. Symptoms mean absolutely nothing. I've been tested negative out to 6 months and had pityriasis rosea all over my body, including my penis. I also had a slight sinus infection during/before this time and my lymph nodes were enlarged. I've learned (the hard way) that symptoms aren't an indicator for anything.
Avatar n tn Can you please advise if taking prednisone(panafcorte)Orally for a skin rash , very itchy on trunk ,arms, back , can this treatment approx 35mg a day mask the symptoms of ARS or early HIV. ? Eg masking fever, swollen glands , aching muscles. 2. Will taking this Prednisone (Panafcorte) have an effect on a typical ARS rash ?
Avatar f tn And all I have now is a rash no other symptoms , I goolged it and it says you habe symptoms all at once. I think its a bit to late to start having symptoms now isn't it ?
Avatar m tn Dear All. Can you please tell me can the HIV symptoms like rash and fever can show up as early as 10 days time..?
617123 tn?1221842819 although the rash started itching a little once it was clearing up. how long does tha hiv rash take to clear and does it come in form of the goosebump looking rash? it's clearing wiht no visible marks left on me. at the beginning there was some burning behind my ear where i thought my skin texture changed though no one can see a difference, i can still feel it. the skin color is the same.
Avatar m tn There may be some other symptoms, such as swollen glands, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, but the 3 symptoms are the most common ones, with at least high fever definitely being present. 3) What about HIV rash?? I need more info on HIV rash.I did not get what is a rash? how it looks like? which color? big or small? bulgy? How does it feel? itchy? burning? painful? how the HIV rash could be differentiated from normal rashes? --> Rash is a change of the skin color.
