Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms rash chest

hiv

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 f tn If anyone can give me more information on should I be feeling any other symptoms along with the rash.. Could I have hiv rash, and still test negative? Did my rash appear to soon for it to be HIV rash? Also prior to my sexual encounter, I've never had a rash like the ones I've described a day in my life. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Also I will be getting a HIV done on the 3 month mark, but for now, any help would do! Thank you in advance!
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. I suggest that if the rash persists for another 2 weeks, show it to a doctor. Meantime, there isn't any specific treatment you need to do. Best. Dr.
Avatar n tn I know I'm being way paranoid and over analyzing every little symptom I have, but I just always come up with possible things wrong when I google my symptoms etc and when I see HIV I get so worried. My only concern is this rash I have, I thought I had Keratosis Pilaris on the back of my arms (both) and also some tiny bumps on my chest and now stomach, however I went to my doctor and he told me it was Folliculitis, dry skin. Said to apply baby oil after showering etc....
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 non itchy macopopalur rash chest neck and face or all over body for acute hiv infection but many other things can cause this kind of rash
Avatar f tn i had unprotected sex about a month ago and there were no symptoms up until recently when i developed some rash on my chest. i really don;t know whether it looks anything like hiv related rash or is it just some irritation on my skin?i have uploaded picture on my profile of the rash, if you could have a look and tell me your opinion, i would highly appreciate it.
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.
Avatar m tn Can a HIV rash occur on the chest as a red blotch with lots of small pimples? & Can it exist alone, without other HIV symptoms?
Avatar f tn And that my skin is brown, from what I understand the color of the HIV rash changes depending on the color if your skin, mine rash is very red
Avatar n tn I did not look at them. Got a weird rash on chest that would not go away with cortizone cream and was given a corticoid pill that has helped. The rash was raised the sized of my hand and was on the chest annd migrated to the bellybutton then back up to the left and it stayed and mostly vanished. The red disappeared and left with some white bump. had slight lymphnodes enlarged and dont know if a fever was present I was in warm climate. All this happened 3 to 4 weeks after sex.
Avatar m tn Will the rash look like red spots on the chest? 4. Is it itchy? 5. When squeezed will clear puss come out? 6. Will the rash appear and disapperar for months at a time?
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 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 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 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 n tn Does the burning red face, neck and ears constitute a rash and would it be hot? 3. Can you tell what kind of rash is from HIV? 4. How high would a fever be that's associated with HIV and how long would it last? 5. How severe would the night sweats be and how frequent? Everything I read lists the symptoms, but never tells details about the symptoms.
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 n tn I mean this could be anxiety but i just want to make sure. Does anyone know if this is what HIV rash looks like? I saw pictures of KS and it looks nothing like that, but do these sound like anyting i should be worried about? I am going to get tested this week to hopefully ease my mind, but I just want to assure myself that I am not positive before i go.
Avatar n tn i have not broken out in acne for many years and given so many appeared at once i was wondering if this could be HIV related rash? I picked and squeezed alot of them due stress and now it looks terrible. I have since gone for HIV testing and am waiting the results, could i get a false negative if this was HIV (does the rash signify the window period is closed?
Avatar m tn Although I know the fatigue can be explained by the stress I had a non itchy rash on my chest for one day after being incontact sexually with a friend of mine. The rash went away but a week later i noticed very faint red spots in the chest area again. This worries me because I don't know what could cause this? Contact with her skin? I have been on a huge bender as far as drinking goes as well and three days after I stopped drinking excessively is when it faintly reappeared. Please help me.
Avatar f tn In other words, acute HIV would never cause rash alone, without other symptoms. Also, the rash of ARS doesn't itch. An itchy rash often is due to allergy, and it sounds like you have a lot of potential factors that could trigger allergic rashes. I won't try to guess which of them might be the explanation in this case. But I'm confident your rash isn't due to HIV. If it continues or you otherwise remain concerned, see a doctor about it. But don't worry about HIV.
Avatar n tn ars symptoms...IF ONE EVEN EXPERIENCES THEM...come at 2-4 weeks post exposure...NOT 7 weeks. symptoms come at once...not something one day...and something else the next day. your "symptoms" are NOT hiv related. if you had unprotected vaginal / anal intercourse or shared iv drug works...you will need to test at 3 months post exposure for a conclusive result.
Avatar m tn (You also describe a relatively low risk exposure, since most sex workers don't have HIV; 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?
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 m tn I have this rash on my chest.. its three little spots..is this related to hiv?
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.
