Avatar f tn Hello, In terms of the skin, the late hiv symptoms include a hiv rash on the skin (the rash is often flaky in nature like a severe case of psoriasis), sores around the male or female genital areas, easy bruising of the skin, warts that are rather large in size on the feet, hands, face, anal and genital regions, and mouth sores or lesions inside the mouth.
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...
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.
623944 tn?1244039090 The biggest complaint is the fatigue. Sometimes it hits and I feel like I have the flu, but no fevers, no cold like symptoms, just the body aches and weakness and lack of appetite. I have intermittent digestive problems, sometimes it doesn't work, other times, works too well. Yes, I itch. It comes and goes, usually lasts 3-4 days, then stops for a day or two - neck to ankles.
Avatar n tn There is nothing in your description that sound at all like HIV, and heterosexually transmitted HIV remains rare in most settings in industrialized countries, even in people and populations with gonorrhea. I predict negative HIV test results.
Avatar f tn OK SO IT ALL STARTED 3 YRS AGO IN 2006 WHEN I HAD UNPROTECTED SEX WITH MY BOYFRIEND AT THE TIME BUT NOW HES MY EX BOYFRIEND WE R BROKEN UP BUT AT THE TIME WE WERE TOGETHER HE WAS CHEATED ON ME BUT I DIDN'T KNOW IT......
Avatar m tn how does a hiv rash look and where would it be? i something that looks like a rash on my chest but really looks like goosebumps but a little darker than the rest of my skin.
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 f tn 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 I no longer speak to this girl and we only had sex once which was around 10-12 weeks ago. Could I be getting symptoms this late? Does anyone know the characteristics of a hiv rash?
Avatar n tn 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 m tn 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. Also I have started to feel unwell within myself and havepins and needles in my arms and legs could this be HIV related.
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 m tn HIV has no specific rash. If someone had a rash and tested negative then it had nothing to do with HIV to begin with.
Avatar m tn Dear all, how does an hiv rash look like and which part of the body it is seen.SO in the case of swelling lymph too.Also is it likely to develop symptoms such as swelling lymph nodes 7 days after exposure..
Avatar n tn I can't find any concrete information. Does the rash itch? How does it look? Where is it on the body? Is it intense or just a simply rash thats not at all painful and barely noticeable, just itchy? In my case its all over my body, especially on my legs. It would be my first symptom 14 weeks after my possible exposure along with diarrhea. Does that sound like it could possibly be HIV? Also, does diarrhea usually come with it?
6577846 tn?1382608488 Dear teak, I can see from your posts that you have wide knowledge about the disease. Please tell me, does the rash in the picture look like an hiv rash? Also, i did have the flu and sore throat for 4 days, no fever though, the flu cleared up in 4 days using a medicine, to treat the nasal congestion, and strepsils lozenges for the throat. No antibiotics involved. Do these symptoms sound like ARS symptoms? And if they are, would a test come positive 3 weeks post exposure?
Avatar n tn My question 2 weeks ago was what does the HIV rash look like? does it itch? is it light like a heat rash? is it raised? how long does it last? does it appear and disappear or is constant? Although its reassuring to hear no risk it would educate me and others to know what the hiv rash looks like.. I have had test for everyother std bar hiv and been negative so you can understand my concern with passing it on.. I just am not educated enough to know what other std can have these symptoms ..
Avatar m tn When will the ARS rash appear and how long will it stay for? 2. What other syptoms will accompany the rash? 3. 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 Today several small red spots appeared on my skin, looked just like insect bites, but don't itch, and are not next to each other but isolated. Should this worry me? Does an HIV rash look like this?
Avatar f tn I also jumped in a freezing cold swimming pool on Saturday 2/21 which was a very bad experience, I m thinking this is cold Urticaria from the cold water or allergies. 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.
Avatar n tn //www.medhelp.org/posts/HIV-Prevention/Window-period/show/1178859 Look at the Doctor's response about test windows. Hope all clears up.
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 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 Does the hiv rash disappear as quickly as a bed bug bite would? Can a hiv rash be easily mistaken for a bed bug bite?
Avatar m tn Hi, I have a question related to HIV rash, and HIV in general. In the period of last four months, I had unprotected oral sex twice with two partners (I was the one giving oral sex). First one was before 4 months, and the second 4 weeks ago. Im not sure how long after the first sex I had fever 39´C and throat problems, I went to see my doctor, he said I had strong sinuses problems and otitis media and gave me penicillin shots.
