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 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.

Avatar m tn 3) In the unlikely event your tonsillitis was HIV related, I cannot say how long it might take to clear up or how long tonsillar enlargement might persist. That often happens after any acute tonsillitis. 4) HIV related lymphadenopathy (inflamed lymph nodes) is generally systemic, i.e. involves several body areas, not only the neck. This sounds typical for regional lymphadenopathy due to your tonsillitis.
Avatar f tn May I have another question? How long does HIV rash take to appear during Seroconversion? Is it always accompanied by fever?
Avatar m tn Rockoff, I just wanted to make sure (second opinion) that typical Perioral Dermatitis does not look like a acute HIV rash. I take that you are saying perioral dermatitis does not look like an acute HIV rash. This has reassured me and put my mind to ease. I now see why I was told no hiv testing was necessary. Thanks and keep up the good work Dr.
Avatar f tn My question is, what does an HIV rash look like? After a week or two I broke out with three raised red bumps on my chest. Didn't look like acne that I usually have. No itch to them. They just looked weird. I took a test weeks later but it came out negative. Now after research I'm thinking that it might not have showed up on the test. How soon will it show up on a test after all the symptoms (bumps, headache, fatigue, etc.) have passed?
Avatar n tn 1) Does this rash sound like the typical symptoms of acute HIV? Is it normal for it to disappear and reappear over a 4 - 5 week period? 2) Are other symptoms normally present? I think I had a headache for two hours once during this entire 4 week period. No other symptoms are / were really present. I know, I know... i really need to be tested, and will. I am just so nervous that I am curious what your experience is with this rash and if this sounds like acute HIV or likely something else.
