Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms skin


Avatar m tn You don't have HIV.
Avatar m tn -dry skin on my face and hands -something that looks like dundruff in my eyebrows -scalp problems with small areas that bleeds when scrapped -patches of dry skin on arms around 1-2 cm that gets redish after bath and are surrounded by areas of what is called "chicken skin" I've read that these symptoms are hiv related and I've read what hiv pos people wrote about their dry skin problems. From your knowing, does these symptoms come as soon as 2-3 months after infection?
Avatar m tn Welcome to the forum. Heterosexually transmitted HIV is less common in the US (and other industrialized countries) than you might think. The large majority of women like your partner do not have HIV, and the odds are very strong that you weren't exposed at all. Even if you were, the average transmission risk from unprotected vaginal sex, female to male, is around 1 in 2,000 -- and that's only if the woman is infected.
Avatar n tn Those are not any kind of symptoms of HIV. You did put yourself at risk so you should test.
Avatar n tn Thank you.
Avatar m tn Symptoms are never a valid indicator for HIV.. That is why we discontinued discussing symptoms.. Also remember we are hitting the cold and flu season now...
Avatar m tn The first symptoms of HIV infection, sometimes called acute HIV infection or primary HIV infection, occur about 1 to 4 weeks after the virus was transmitted.
Avatar m tn As I have said innumerable times on this forum, symptoms never are a useful indicator for or against new HIV infection, because even the classical symptoms of HIV are caused much more commonly by other viruses and illnesses. (Read just about any 10 threads at random for more discussion.) Anyway, your symptoms don't suggest HIV (see below). You're probably a better judge than I am whether your genital area symptoms are due to a recurrence of your prostate problem.
Avatar f tn Hello, You can not rule out HIV if your HIV test is negative. Your HIV test result reveals only your HIV status and does not indicate whether or not your partner has HIV. HIV is not necessarily transmitted every time you have sex. This is why this should not be seen as a method to find out if your partner is infected. The enzyme immunoassay or EIA is the most common screening test used to look for antibodies to HIV.
Avatar f tn HIV "symptoms" are also symptoms that could be related to about a bazillion other phsycial ailments/issues. "Safe" sex is just that...SAFE. HIV is NOT an easy virus to transmit...and an intact condom is sufficient protection against it. Move on.
Avatar f tn I just wanted to ask a question regarding skin symptoms and hiv, as I have seen many confusing (and conflicting) reports online. (I know googling symptoms is a bad idea in the first place, but anxiety has gotten the best of me) Exposure: brief unprotected sex, no ejaculation--a little more than a year ago. Have not really thought about this incident until recently when weird things have been happening with my skin.
Avatar m tn 3 months is conclusive testing for HIV and no you cannot get hiv from oral sex.
Avatar m tn hello i would like some input, is flaky skin a symptoms of hiv i never had flaky skin and after having unprotected sex with a girl on one occassion about a year and half later i began to have flaky skin on my face now i been google this and all that pops up is hiv seborheic dermatitis which 85% of hiv people get i dont know if this is what i have but am so stress and depress now and am scare to get tested becuase i feel this is what it is.
Avatar n tn I have a stiff neck for 4 months. She has runny nose and cough for six months. Both of us have had very obvious skin changes. Our skin seems to have aged 10 years in the last 12 months.
Avatar m tn Either it broke or I scratched so hard the skin came off. Also had what felt like extreme jock itch in the fold area of my upper thigh and scrotum. Should I get tested?
Avatar m tn I have read in forums that Urticaria is one of the symptoms of HIV infection. I am deeply worried about this. Will HIV start acting within 24 hours it entered the body. The reason why I am worried about my encounter is, this irritation started from the next day I had my encounter. I also sucked her nipples 3-4 times. Sometimes i would have touched her vagina and then my penis. I checked the condom. It was intact and the encounter was only less than a minute. Should I take an HIV test ?
Avatar m tn The key is "there was no risk for contracting hiv" and since this is an HIV forum there is nothing to say. No one but your doctor can diagnose you, and the fact you are still trying to find an HIV link (despite the above advice that you didn't even have any risk) is a strong indication that you will not be able to self-diagnose your health concerns.
Avatar n tn And as we have said innumerable times on this forum, symptoms virtually never are a useful indicator of new HIV infection, since even typical symptoms of ARS are more commonly caused by other, minor infections; and in any case your symptoms aren't typical for ARS anyway." That remains true. Superficial skin and oral fungal infections (thrush) are more common in HIV infected persons.
Avatar f tn So I took a girl to the casino, and she gave me oral when I dropped her off.... And the next day my throat started hurting...... And I can feel my head got hot, I asked my dad to feel my head and it's not that hot he said ....It's day 6 and I don't know if it's from skin irritation or the cold since I don't wear a sweater at my work I noticed my skin was irritated...but now I have the sniffles, I've had it before the incident, and I'm hawking allugies....
Avatar n tn You cannot look at lists of HIV/ARS symptoms and conclude that just because you have some of those symptoms, HIV is a likely explanation. Most symptoms due to any minor, garden variety infection are included among the HIV symptoms. So there should be zero concern about HIV in this situation. Don't worry about it. You don't need testing. Just continue to follow up with your doctor if the skin infection problem or other symptoms continue to concern you.
Avatar n tn Lately my neck pain is getting more and more severe .In addition I also feel my skin more itchy.I have the HIV blood report pending .What are the chances in this case .There is no flu/fever/cough .I am also diabetic .Can anyone get HIV from blowjob.I know it will be difficult to comment without blood report but would like to know if these symptoms are any indicator.
Avatar f tn Okay..I read on a website that some symptoms of HIV are tingling, burning or pain in the hands and feet..decreased changes My question would it possible to have those things happening randomly, at around about the same time, and not be infected? Like noticing that you're getting more 'beauty spots' all over the body..going for ages without eating or drinking..random tingling in hands that won't go away?
