2214843 tn?1339326026 What does the acute HIV infection rash look? Are they a cluster of small bumps or apart? Two days ago, I got about 8 red rashes on my left arm. They are red spots, sparsely distributed, about 2 inches away from each other. Now, they are fading away. Are these possibly caused by HIV infection? What do the acute HIV infection rash look? They they appear in big amount and multiple areas? Do they keep growing and spreading out? How long do they last?
Avatar m tn These symptoms appeared 2 weeks after unsafe sex,and went the next day after I had ant-biotic. Could this be a case of acute HIV. How long do these symptoms last? For me the symptoms went within a day. Could someone also tell me what does the rash appear like, I might have confused my rash with a pimple.

Avatar n tn From what I understand reading on the internet these are not the typical Acute HIV dots, but it also says that rash symptoms can be different from time to time. Also, from what I understand - again from internet sources - small somewhat itchy dots are usually a sign of a virus infection, not bacterial, where dots/rash tend to be larger in size.
Avatar m tn Since I have no idea how serious the sore throat, fever and the body rash for HIV will be, and since I have had a mild body itching for the last 3 - 4 weeks which is off and on as an allergy reaction to perhaps my medication or a certain food that I haven't been able to surely know it and a painless swalles tonsils for 3 weeks without any fever or night sweat, I wanted to ask you the knowledgeable guys assuare me of the severety of the acute HIV symptoms (What a very sore thorat?
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.
Avatar n tn then the risk is very low. I thought HIV does not pass through intact latex. So, if the condom does not break, and if it's used for the ENTIRE sex act, would the risk be ZERO (after-the fact). Or is it simply that the only ZERO risk is no sex. Just like there is a small risk in crossing the street. Thus, the ONLY ZERO risk with respect to crossing the street is "no crossing." 2.
Avatar m tn Checked Temperature with Thermometer once again- 98.4-99.1 NO RASH or Swollen Glands in this week. Wondered if that was Acute HIV Symptoms (ARS) which is typically in 2-4 weeks time. Rest of the 4th Week: Back to Normal self - all symptoms gone without any explanation. Star of Week 5: Started coming down with Dizziness again with Heavy Eyes, Warm Forehead and Face which stayed there for 3-4 days Checked Fever but again fluctuated 97.4 - 98.1 with no other symptoms.
Avatar m tn Can ars rash appear after 6 weeks 2. Can ars disappear only after 2days or does it last long 3.

Avatar n tn Have you seen any symptoms of chicken pox lesion on any HIV patients that have been exposed to a person with HIV a week after protected sex before? 4.) My last question is how long does the chicken pox lesions or acute viral syndrome last, I have lesion on my chest back and face and on my upper arms for 4 days now. I have been applying calamine lotion for about 2 days and I am going to a dermatologist tomorrow for a biopsy to see what it is I have.
Avatar n tn Re-read my response. Search the threads for "time to positive HIV test". You do not have HIV.
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 n tn Does this sound like sinus/allergies or can acute HIV symptoms drag on like this? I thought with acute HIV the headache would be at the same time as the fever. Any insight would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn what do you know about the onset of ARS and how long they last? Does 5 and a half weeks of headaches and muscle aches sound like ARS?
Avatar n tn How long does acute HIV rash last, could I be explosed to HIV with NO other symptoms? Would HIV rash go away almost immediately with Zithromoax? I'm freakin' out here and have played Russian Roulette for the LAST time. Thanks!
Avatar f tn Whats the percentage of people with ARS who do not get fever and rash? How about stuffy nose turned runny nose? 4. How long can anxiety symptoms such as diarrhea, headache, or muscle aches twitching or tingling of muscles persist after intense stress subsides? Thank you so much for your help!!
Avatar m tn @Nursegirl how long does acute hiv ars rash last?
936016 tn?1332769204 It lasts about two to three months, though the symptoms will last for a shorter period. Seroconversion is also known as acute HIV infection. The symptoms of an HIV infection are often described as ‘flu-like,’ the most common are fever and chills, swollen glands, a sore throat (with or without ulcers), anaemia and rash, particularly on the upper body.
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.
Avatar m tn This appeared out of the blue in June 2012 (I say out of the blue because I don't take drugs, don't smoke, don't have diabetes, didn't have chemotherapy, and didn't take medicines for long periods of time -besides 1 week of cyprofloxacin in March 2012). I had a sexual exposure in February 2012 with bizarre symptoms exactly 2 weeks later that lead me to think on HIV (a cervical swollen lymph node, neck stiffness and then an urinary track infection), but I tested negative several times.
Avatar m tn When ars symptoms occur are they simultaneous? O do they happen sequentially? How long do they last? could my symptoms be due to mono or herpes? thank you.
Avatar n tn If you vomit is in the morning or at any specific time of the day like after eating and how long would you feel this way? What kind of rash do you get and how long would you have it for? Would you see white spots in your mouth at this stage? Regarding lymph nodes would they be large and hard or large and soft and is person able to feel this without touching them or would you experience pain in them?
Avatar m tn Your white lines do not sound like anything to do with HIV - They have prob. been there for a long time until you looked.
Avatar m tn I read a several posts on the internet, and a few of those mentioned a rash being a result of an acute HIV infection. (2-4 weeks I believe.) I thoroughly explained this to a few friends of mine who are ER physicians. Both of them just laughed about my overactive mind and told me my only health was concern was being a hypochondriac. It's been 5 years, last year. I battled strepthroat for 6 months off and on. (I never finished my antibiotics.) Plus, I tested positive for mono.
Avatar n tn 12/2/05 I just got diagnosed with zoster sin herpete. Basically, shingles without a rash. It does exist. Please check some of sites on the Internet. I was amazed at how many sites there were. I have had to do my own research. Hope your health imporves.
Avatar f tn Today, exactly a week after I noticed symptoms, I seem to be back to normal. Are these symptoms typical of acute HIV? How long would they typically last, including fever and rash? Freaked out, got get tested, 29 days after via rapid blood test. That was NEGATIVE. Should take any comfort in this test? Should I re-test?
Avatar f tn As long as testing is done sufficiently long after the last possible exposure, the results always outweigh symptoms and the exposure history. In other words, your symptoms and the nature of the exposure do not matter here; the test results tell the story. That said, the exposure is not suspicious. Getting HIV infected blood on intact skin is not a risk. (I have to wonder how that happened -- presumably personal contact with a person known to have both HIV and HCV?
