Hiv rash on legs

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv rash on legs


Avatar m tn i have rashes on my both upper legs. can acute hiv rashes be on only upper legs? i have no rashes on torso or arms or face. and im brown some of them are red and some are purple.
Avatar m tn During that time I recieved oral sex and shortly after (could have been a day, a week or two I don't really remember), I got a nasty discharge (tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia both negative) and a rash developed on my upper legs which was like a honeycomb of redness and red spots like folliculitis. Is this consistent with HIV rash? Both of have since cleared up.

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 n tn I don't know any other reason I could have a rash AND diarrhea other than HIV. The rash has been going on for four days and is not almost gone. So how long does the rash last? Would this really be my first HIV symptom after 14 weeks? COULD THIS BE ANOTHER STD SYMPTOM?
Avatar n tn im just wondering about what a hiv related rash loks like because i have been getting this tiny very tiny little dots that look like an acne pinple in my belly (very few, about 4 o so) im also getting what looks like little tiny blood dots that is under the skin and i cant feel them, only see. and im also getting what looks like pimples on my legs but dont know if the are really pimples. please can any one here tell me what this is if it could be hiv or not.
Avatar m tn Could you please answer a few questions I have regarding HIV Rash - 1. Will it reoccur or will it only appear once when HIV is first infected? 2. Does it look more like a rash or spots? 3. Does it itch? 4. Where is it most likely to occur on the body? 5. What does it look like? 6. Will it come on its own or with any other symptoms? I had unprotected anal sex with another man about a year and a half ago and I am worried.
Avatar m tn recently I developed very itchy legs and some spot on my side. Could this be an HIV rash? There are no individual spots on my legs, just red areas around the hair follicles. There is nothing on my back or face. some redness on my upper chest but only around where the hair is. I'm freaking out. Can't work, sleep, or sit still.
Avatar m tn 2 days after possible exposure I got an itch-less rash on both of my legs. There is no agreement on the various sources I looked at about within how many days a rash can appear. A source says acute rash can appear within few days. Another thing that worries me very much is that one of the picture I saw on the internet about the maculopalpular rash (which says is the rash associated with HIV infection) looks exactly like the one I have got.
Avatar m tn ARS rash is almost always on the trunk--torso.
Avatar n tn While others say it can occor on the legs and thighs an buttocks. I get tested again on Aug 20 which will be 13 weeks from the encounter and hope it is still negative then. Your reply does help and hope that is the case that i dont have it.
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 One of the reasons why I was so concerned is that after googling about my rash, and finding information on the Internet on whether HIV rashes itch or not, I have found some sites where they say that it does rash, so that was confusing me a lot. May I ask a follow-up question on this? you seem to be pretty certain that it does not itch, can you provide more background on your answer please?
Avatar m tn I Have been getting a rash on and off for two months and one week now, its kind of slowing down. it looks like red dots(very small) then sometimes it looks like bug bites, and sometimes even a patch of my skin will swell, i know this sounds like hives because it will only last several hours then fades away and shows up elsewhere later on.
1043834 tn?1269046623 I have developed a rash on around my collar and my chest area. I am freaking out since It just developed. I hope It isn't ARS rash. it has been like 9 weeks since that day.
Avatar n tn The rash looked as if somebody would have taken a paint brush and flicked it, kind of blotchy, on the inside of arms back and on my hip, some on my legs, basically where i had my shorts and t-shirt on. I began to worry when it stuck around for a few days, ive had contact derm before, non-itchy but went away in 24 hours, my question is, could this have been from that night of sex? could the rash be an std? ARS rash?
18954 tn?1314301717 My husband gets this rash on his chest and back and sometimes on his upper legs, it is really dry and itchy. He says it feels better after I amply lotion to it. Could this be the rash they say you get when you show symptoms of hiv or is it just egzema? We have only been together for two years so it worries me.
Avatar n tn 2 days after being with this girl I did have a rash on my right top, forearm. Looked like freckles, lasted a day. SHould I get the really pronounced one checked for a viral culture? I have to wait alteast two days. Is condom use, one time exposure, and no gential lesions, encouraging, very encouraging or makes no difference? I did have some itiching in the genital area but attributed it more to anxiety and hair growing back in after trimming. OH!
Avatar n tn What does an acute HIV rash look like? I have these red spots on mostly my legs and ankles and only randomly on my arms, not really my stomach. They tend to itch. I don't know if it can be associated with ARS or not. I don't really have any others symptoms such as fever or fatigue, just this rash thing. I don't want to mistaken it for Posion Ivy or poison oak if it is really something more serious. Can anyone help? ps...
Avatar m tn I can't tell what they are whether measles or not, cause they didnt reach all the way down to cover my legs. There are a few on my legs, but mostly at the moment on my torso and back. The ones on the face are already disappearing after two days. I have also seen a white spot or two in my mouth, can't tell whether they are Koplik's spots or ulcers though, they are quite small. Would anyone be able to ease my anxiety? Thanks!
Avatar m tn It started on my arms, legs (especially in the thighs) and back of the hands. A week later it appeared on my stomach, chest and back of the feet. At the beginning it was very itchy. Now looks like it's healing and it's leaving dark acne-like scars. I have had NO fever, NO flu-like symptoms of any sort, NO lymph nodes, NO muscular or joints ache, NO sore throat. Could it be ARS? Thanks a lot!!! And forgive my bad English. I'm form Argentina.
Avatar m tn Hi, so I had a risky sexual encounter around two weeks ago. Right now I have a rash on my inner thighs that is making me worry that I may have contracted HIV. I have had it for around 7 days now. It is the only symptom I am experiencing right now. No headaches, enlarged lymph nodes, flu like symptoms etc. Just the very itchy rash around my inner thighs, coming up to my waist at some points and then just a few bumps on my ankles and legs.
Avatar n tn Just last week I developed an itchy rash on my butt. A few days later it started to spread to my waist line, sides of my legs, and under my boobs. I went to the doctor to see what it was and he wasn’t sure. The rash consists of small little bumps in clusters that are clear, some your can’t even see, only feel. He said it wasn’t poison ivy, and I haven’t taken any new medications and I haven’t been doing anything different.
Avatar f tn i also had 2-4 tiny bumps/watery filled bumps on my lower lip *my dermatologist gave me lotion and cream to treat the rash/small bumps on my back,legs arms and gave oral medicine(ped tablet)..but the rashes after 2 weeks just remains and now i am not treating it,from small itchy bumps,it forms small blisters..and the rashes get bigger a bit.
Avatar f tn After 3 months i got red rashes on my hands, finguers and legs. They are looking just like mosquito bits. They are not itching. They are comming & going from 1 month. What do you think about these rash.. is they related to hiv? Any expert plz answer this.
Avatar f tn But today I noticed there is a red rash on my abdomen and high up on my back where the shoulder plates are. I'm really freaking out about this. The rash is not really itchy. Please advise is this hiv rash?
