Avatar n tn If one gets a rash from ARS it will last from 1-2 weeks and it is not a puss field rash nor do you get any type of fluid from it. If you haven't tested for HIV and other STDs from your unprotected sex you should. You can test now and get a conclusive test result.
Avatar m tn I have tested for every STD including HIV and HTLV, this was negative after 17months. My current struggles are white coated tongue with teethmarks at the border. Severe headache which is much better now, but have a moving crawling sensation 24/7 in scalp/brain. Balanitis and peeling hand and soles. My next stop will be at a dermatoligist on 2 dec, to se if I have actually a yeast infection or staph.

936016 tn?1332765604 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 Does a typical acute rash improve dramatically in one day? Does the rash come and go over the course of the entire seroconversion period?

Avatar n tn m still right after i finished with her that night and i knew i would suffer as a result. 2 days after the incident (too early i know ) i went to a private clinic and asked for an hiv test , at this time i'm still ignorant about a lot of things toward the risk of unsafe . diseaese i had never known about or how easily would they be transmitted.
Avatar n tn You rash cannot possibly be due to HIV, so your question is irrelevant: It doesn't matter how long HIV rashes last. But typically it's several days to a couple of week. I repeat that your symptoms are those of a cold and do not suggest HIV. However, you don't describe your HIV risk. If you had a truly high risk exposure--for example sex with a known-infected person 10-20 days before your symptoms started--it would make sense to see a doctor or clinic.
Avatar m tn Dear Doctor, it has been a while since I last posted on this forum. I have had an episode with CSW on Feb 6th 2011. For as much as I can recall, I think I have used condom during any sexual intercourse. But since, I was on recreational drugs at the time, I can only be 90% sure. The problem starts 3 weeks after the encounter. I began to have rashes on my hands, legs, and chest. And 2 days later (which is today) I began to have a sore throat.
