Hiv rash no other symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv rash no other symptoms


Avatar m tn once HIV symptoms start, the blood test is almost always positive. And your rash doesn't sound like that associated with HIV, and HIV could never cause a rash as the only symptom. I'm not going to guess at other possible causes; we don't speculate once it is clear that neither HIV nor any other STD is the cause of symptoms. See a doctor or clinic if you remain concerned. If you are reasonably certain a high risk event occurred, you could have another HIV test at 6-8 weeks after the event.
Avatar n tn ur symptoms dont relate to hiv...! and ur 12 week test proves no hiv! those type of symptoms are hiv related....but u would also have all the over major ones...fever..swollwen lympth..etc! sounds like some sort of allergies...
Avatar n tn 1) Can having all of these symptoms in combination be explained by something other than HIV? I got tested a few days ago and it came back negative but that would mean nothing if I'm still in the window. 2) Would HIV rash come and go like this over weeks? Or would you get it once for a sustained period? Thank you so much.
1325789 tn?1276885239 I'm going in for a full std checkup June 30, ( which will be 7 1/2 weeks since protected vaginal, which is the incident I'm most concerned of) Could any of these symptoms be related to early HIV symptoms, ARS etc. I know you can't go by symptoms that is why I'm going in for a full checkup, but just looking for peace of mind. Internet just has me scared.
Avatar m tn From what I read if no unprotected penetration occurred there is no risk. Also the rash of ARS usually does not itch and occurs as a cluster of symptoms . If no other unprotected exposures occurred you should be fine.
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 After I shave, it got worse. No other symptoms, just the red spots / blotches under the skin, a bump on one of them and flu-like symptoms that are starting to clear up. The acts that I felt would have put me at risk (assuming she is in fact hiv positive) was that I performed oral sex on her on numerous occasions and I don't have the best of gums, they do bleed quite often. We also had unprotected vaginal sex on several occasions, no anal sex at all.
Avatar f tn HIV has no specific symptoms, so the answer is no. HIV is not diagnosed by symptoms.
Avatar m tn I have a small red dry patch next to my left eye for 3 weeks now - no other symptoms. If this was rash due to ARS would I have fever would it present itself 2 months after Pep and almost 3 after exposure?
Avatar n tn It's not HIV related. If you were to have ARS you wouldn't have just one symptom.
Avatar f tn This is because there are many other things which are far more common, and much easier to catch, which have exactly the same symptoms as HIV. Even specialist HIV Doctors do not use symptoms to diagnose HIV infection. So if they do not diagnose based on symptoms, image how hard it is for patients to self diagnose. The only useful thing is to take a test.
Avatar n tn hello anybody id just like to know is a burning rash on the back of your hands after 3 and a half weeks exposure to hiv something to be worried about i also have most of the other symptoms thank you.
Avatar m tn I have the rash on my chest, the pimples are very small. I also have very small unusual bumps on my hand.
Avatar m tn No 4. Not 100% sure 5. Google it 6. Most likely with other symptoms. Whatever is going on now has no relation to HIV. Test now to know your status.
Avatar f tn You can not use symptoms to self-diagnose yourself with HIV. HIV symptoms can match a number of other illnesses, and if yours were related to HIV, you would have tested positive. Test again at 3 months to confirm your negative staus.
Avatar n tn Hiv rash is known to onlyu come for 2 to a few days and with other symptoms. It doesn't itch. No point looking for pictures of hiv rash as you will just see photos of every other rash and think you have hiv rash. I too had a rash in the correct window period, also as you explained a kind of heat rash coming and going. Can be a number of things like allergic reaction to medication, bacteria infection of even stress/anxiety worries.
Avatar f tn what does a hiv ars rash come during the syptoms does it come when you see all the symptoms or can it come later because when i was sick with no fever (normal flu symptoms), then when i got a shot of antibiotics and two pills of antibiotics then a few days i notice a rash on my chest and thats when the swollen lymph node came. the rash had swollen my chest hairs no white puss or nothing just swollen, and it stayed that way for a few months.
