Hiv rash on chest

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv rash on chest


Avatar n tn I would wake up sometimes on my back with this burning heat up my spine back and stomach. Now have this rash on my chest that looks like and feels like a sunburn. Sometimes I feel it on my knees and at times my body itches in different places, head, neck, arms, legs, wrists, feet, hands, and ankles. However, the only areas that show the red sunburn appearance are the chest and knees at times. All other areas become red only when scratched. It often bothers me at night and I sweat.
Avatar n tn I am freaked out as I had a small rash on my chest that came and went away. Other than that, I feel fine. Is there any chance I could have gotten HIV this way? She grinded for about 25 seconds, never took her panties off. Any help would be great. Also, would a test at 4 weeks be pointless? Am I contagious at this point or does it take a while?
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. It's been a little over a week and they look to be fading a bit now. They're not painful, but can itch (although not all the time). I'm sexually active with multiple partners in the past few months, but always wear protection.
Avatar n tn As much as I can tell from the photos, this looks like heat rash or possibly a viral rash. There are plenty of summer viruses besides HIV, though.

Avatar f tn One person said she had a rash on her leg, another person had rash on just one half of his body, another person had rash on both legs and buttocks. The rash apparently doesn't last very long, based on what other people have experienced with ARS rash, it lasts a few days. The ARS is also said to not be itchy or painful, just a red macular, usually on the chest or upper arms, but also mentioned to be on thighs or buttocks.

Avatar f tn On Saturday I noticed a red rash of small bumps on my upper chest on only the left side. They don't have white heads or anything like that, just red bumps. It's only itchy when I wake up, but seems to be spreading since Saturday. I also noticed another rash on the top of my hands which I noticed around Friday. These ones look like pimples and are not as red as the one on my chest. I will be seeing a doctor tomorrow, but do I have anything to worry about? Or is this something serious?

Avatar m tn 3 weeks later, i start to feel my fingers and feet inching and then i got rash on my back, chest, stomack biscepts and legs. They are itchy and uncofortable. I went to the doctor he gave me Bendryl but that didn't help me. I have no fever, diarrea but had a brief nosea. Could this be Possible ARS because i'm really scared now becuase it took this long for the rash to stop itching.
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.

I took another test .it was 4th generation combo test.
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.
