Common Questions and Answers about How long does the hiv rash 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. Its been 11 months since I had unsafe sex and I have not got myself tested, Could someone plz clear my doubt.
Avatar n tn The rash has been going on for four days and is not almost gone. So how long does the rash last? Would this really be my first HIV symptom after 14 weeks? COULD THIS BE ANOTHER STD SYMPTOM?
Avatar n tn like back pain or leg pain of HIV/ARS or anything related last for 8 months since exposure? I'm thinking not, but wanted to make sure to ease my mind. Should I be checking for something else (like disc problems)? Would depression/stress be related to any of this? Thanks again.
Avatar n tn I was wondering how long std symptoms last? I had protected sex almost 11 weeks ago and have had a burning itching rash on my scrotum and in my groin the whole time since. I have had 2 doctors look at it and the both say it is jock itch. Does jock itch take that long to heal? I have had soreness in my right leg accompanied by muscle spasms. The pain in my scrotum feels like someone pinching me. I have been using topicals and recently was put on fluconazole (for yeast/ fungal infections).
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 f tn How long does hiv rash last? I still have the rash until now .its been 1 month and 1 week. I have been stressed out since sept 25. I never experienced high fever only the rash.
Avatar f tn What does the rash look like? Where is it usually found? How soon does it start? I am really stressing so do you think this could be stress related instead?
Avatar m tn no matter how high the risk of an HIV exposure, and no matter how typical the symptoms, the test result rules, as long as it was done long enough after the last possible exposure. Contrary to your doctor's advice, a negative 4th generation test at 6 weeks is absolutely 100% accurate. The 3 months standard applies when only an standard antibody test is done (and even then, usually 6-8 weeks is sufficient). See this thread, as well as the other link you will find there: http://www.medhelp.
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 m tn How long does it take for the symptoms to go away? I recieved my injection of Biclin 4 days ago. I like to exercise. When will I be back to my old energetic self?
Avatar f tn The prodrome stage lasts 1 - 5 days before the infection becomes active and the skin rash erupts. Occasionally, the pain can last weeks or even months before the rash erupts. Active Shingles. The rash that marks the active infection follows the same track of inflamed nerves as the prodrome pain. Between 50 - 60% of cases occur on the trunk. The second most common site is the head, particularly on one side of the face. It may also erupt on the neck or lower back.
18954 tn?1314301717 Well, it is like this. Last night, I noticed a slight rash on my arm that consisted of raises in the skin, almost like insect bites, but skin color and not protruding out that way. Then later I noticed the same "rash" on my stomach, chest, and back. I figured it was some sort of allergic reaction to something, and it would be gone by morning.
Avatar m tn 2. This is probably an odd question to you all, but when and HIV rash starts, how long does it take to reach it's peak typically?
Avatar n tn after exposure when does the rash happen? 2. how long would the rash be? 3. does the rash come on by its self or does it come with a fever? 4 does it leave any scars like acne?
Avatar n tn Understand Dr, but just for self knowledge, how long does HIV rash last on a person if they get it on average and also when you say probablility is small do you mean close to none?, thanks again?, just asking for peace of mind although will get the test done.
Avatar n tn I took the 1 dose of Azithromycin given by the doctor and its been 2 days and i still feel a bit of the itchiness and uneasiness. So my question is how long does it usually take to cure and could there be only complications? What are the complications. Is it possible that I can get HIV because I am infected with STD? I have not had sex since.
Avatar m tn that part of the chest became red looking like hiv ars rash. And the rash was limited only the part which was trimmed . Now after 2days 90 %of the rash /redness has disappeared my specific questions are 1. Can ars rash appear after 6 weeks 2. Can ars disappear only after 2days or does it last long 3.
Avatar n tn I just need to know how long does the ARS rash last ???
Avatar m tn there always a first time for everything, go to the DR. if the rash continues it might just be a rash depending on how long you had it, if you have had sex recently with a condom some condom can cause a allergic reaction just a guess but do go to the doctor for the rash, BUT its not HIV as you were never at risk!
Avatar n tn 1 question - As I understand from your post, it states presence of other STD's like herpes enhance hiv transmission. Is the presence of herpes lesions needed on the person who does not have hiv or the person who has hiv? [I hope I am making sense] Say if a man who does not have hiv or any STD's has unprotected vaginal with a woman who has herpes and hiv for say max a minute. The man gets herpes from that particular exposure but before hat he did not have herpes.
Avatar f tn I have an important question if the virus does not go astray in the body according to the strength of immunity Is it supposed to be dazzling with my wife and thank you very much I hope you answer because I am afraid for my family
480448 tn?1426952138 I am very honored to be a regular contributor on the HIV Prevention Forum here at MH. The forum is very busy, and we often get the same inquiries over and over. I figured that putting together a journal entry covering the most popular topics, and just laying out the facts may be helpful. I also invite Lizzie Lou and Teak to share their thoughts, and to cover anything I may have missed.
Avatar n tn Any advise or help would be greatly appreciated. What is the kind of HIV rash, how long does it last and where does it generaaly appear? Is a rash isolated or one can have multiple rashes. I have had a rash on my arm, waistline, very lower back, below my eye, my elbow, my hand, and now on my upper arm. They didn't appear together. But appeared in the order I described over a period of 3 weeks. Most of them are very itchy. I read on the internet that an HIV rash is maculopapular.
