Itchy palms hiv

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy palms hiv


Avatar n tn I am really worried about HIV? I am due to get tested next week but need a few questions answered first - after my possible infection I had no symptoms 2-4 weeks except symptoms of gonharia which I got antibiotics for and went away 12 weeks after possible infextion a red blotchy rash appeared on my chest which was not itchy but when squeezed clear puss came out and I also had loose stools, this went away after about 7 days.
Avatar m tn I am suspicious about being infected, I tested 2 months negative and waiting to do another test after one more month. I feel burning, sometimes itchy palms, numbness also existing. I would like to mention that a month ago I had pink rash in my hand palms and foot soles, and skin was peeling, but it got back to normal now. what could this be? is somehow an indication to HIV?
Avatar n tn It began right below the groin and was red swollen dry scaly and extremely itchy. it went away after about a week and a half but now i have small severly itchy bumps all over my arms,legs, groin,stomache,and blister looking bumps on the palms of my hands. hydrocortizone is not helping either. Can this be a hiv sympthom because I had an unprotected sex about a month ago...pleasehelp.
Avatar m tn I had unprotected sex a month ago and since then my palms on both hands get really itchy dry and peel a little are these early symptoms of hiv? I got tested for all std and hiv and waiting on result but I am really worried..
Avatar f tn Your symptoms have nothing to do with HIV.
Avatar n tn 07 and I had some (a count of maybe 20) blister like (small) rashes the next day (may 28th) on both my palms only. They were colorless and not itchy. After maybe 2 weeks, they peeled off. I had an EIA blood test done at 5 weeks later and it was negative; another test (Elisa) done at 8.5 weeks and was negative. Would you say that I'm not infected? I was only afraid if the condom leaked/breaks. I didn't check. Thanks for your help.
Avatar n tn Since the outbreak I have had itchy palms and occasionally itchy ankles and feet, but my only outbreak of DH is on my elbows. Celiac Sprue or an allergy to wheat can be very silent and difficult to diagnose without the proper blood tests or biopsy of the small intestine. I'm hoping that following a gluten free diet will resolve my DH and itchy hands and feet, not to mention my chronic anemia.
Avatar f tn hello everybody i'm a tad bit worried i may have contact hiv but my partner says he don't have hiv that he gets checked month because due to him having seazuirs sorry for the poor spelling. . .my only question is about this rash i have on my hands well its not really what i'd call a rash & the only thing that even going me thinking its due to hiv is because i was looking online to see what could cause this random peeling of my palms an hands and this is what i found .....
Avatar m tn After this experience was over, It occurred to me that he may have pre-ejaculated and that the cuts on my gums may have exposed me to HIV (I don't know this person and I don't know if he is HIV positive). Since March I've had 3rd generation HIV tests at the 3,4,5, and 6 month marks. I've also had a NAAT test and a rapid antibody test done at the 6 month mark. All of my HIV tests have been non-reactive. My problem is that I've had - and am still having - a bizarre array of symptoms.
Avatar m tn Are these symptoms indicative of any STDs other than HIV? Have you ever come across a case where an insertive penile-vagina male had contracted HIV after safe sex? Am I a rare case of advanced HIV?
Avatar f tn By that day of check up, I noticed my palms are peeling in patches. Also my cleavage has rashes that is itchy and painful and it's like burning, same at my upper back. I notice I have breakouts in my face with small puss. I'm also experiencing headache, sensitive with light, stiff neck, muscle aches, palms and sole sweat, dry skin. This is all new to me. I'm very scared that I got infected with hiv.
Avatar m tn No fever or flu since the incident but I have an occasional dry cough maybe once or twice a day and loose stool and diarrhea, at least once daily. I know a 6-7 week negative clearview HIV 1 and HIV 2 test is reassuring but not definitive until 12 weeks so I continue to worry...
Avatar m tn I am a 35 years old gay man and 1 month ago I had sex with another man, whose HIV status is unknown. We did not have anal sex, but he ejaculated on the outside area of my anus (not inside, as there was no penetration). It's been 14 days now that I developed a very severe skin rash all over my body (except for the face, neck, palms and soles). It started on my arms, legs (especially in the thighs) and back of the hands. A week later it appeared on my stomach, chest and back of the feet.

Avatar m tn About your symptoms, ARS is the first stage of an HIV infection, is the body’s reaction to the infection. Some HIV positive people, but not all of them, reported that around 20 days after their exposure they had fever, sore throat, rash and flu (not cold) like symptoms, all of those came together, or within a few days of difference and lasted for a few weeks. As you see, the same symptoms are present in many other illnesses and not everyone had them, so, we can’t rely on them to diagnose HIV.
Avatar m tn I had unprotected sex with a male and know I think I have HIV, I know i wont know for sure until I have a test but at the minute I just cant face it. I had no symptoms until roughly 6 weeks after possible infection, when i had all the symptoms of ghonaria which I got antibiotics of the net for, and the symptoms disappeared. Then shortly after that I got a rash of non itchy small red bumps across my chest, and one bout of diahrea. They rash on my chest then cleared up.
Avatar m tn Then you had low risk exposures. See a Dr if you wish, I see no major concern.
Avatar n tn I don't really feel fatigue other than the fact that my mind is constantly going and I haven't been sleeping well thinking about this. The rash isn't itchy unless I think about it and does get worse at night. The palms of my hands when I look seem like there is red and white spots under there and a little dry. Does it sound like I made the biggest mistake of my life??? I'm so scared.
Avatar m tn if you had other risky behavior,only way to know your hiv status is by taking standard hiv test 3 months after your last exposure.
Avatar n tn I'm afraid that these two ongoing things are a sign of HIV infection. I also had a itchy rash on my thigh that came out of nowhere which I was told was contact dermatitis. Finally, the palms of my hands keep peeling over and over...I don't know if this is due to sweating or HIV. I hope that my mind is just getting the best of me but I had to ask...could this all be HIV-related or is it just the result of a years worth of obsessing and worrying.
Avatar m tn Ever since the condom broke, I have been worrying myself to death, researching HIV, contracting HIV etc etc etc. I'm terribly scared that I've contracted the virus. 3 Days after I had the encounter, as soon as I was back home, I went to a GUM clinic and was tested straight away for STD's and HIV. Can anyone put my mind at ease, what is the probability that I have contracted HIV? I am so scared / worried.
Avatar f tn Possible exposures: sex with man (status unknown), with condom, just over a month ago. Almost two weeks ago, oral sex (giving and receiving) with a different man (status unknown), ejaculated in my mouth both times. Nearly a week after the oral sex, I woke up with a swollen throat and red, sunburn-like rash covering my groin, buttocks, breasts & surrounding area, but it didn't itch and I no fever. I had slept with a tampon in, and was concerned about TSS, but had no other symptoms.
Avatar m tn The antibody test results prove you don't have HIV as well. It is not possible to have HIV but have negative OraQuick (or any other antibody test) 90 days after catching it. Therefore, something other than HIV is causing your symptoms. And on top of that, the sexual exposure events you describe were low risk, even if your partner had HIV. Did you ask him? If not, do it now; if he says he is uninfected, it should help calm your nerves.
Avatar n tn HI, I was just wondering would a rash occuring in the primary stage of hiv infection occur on the top of hands and arms and would it come and go? And what would it generally look like? are there any other std's that have symptoms that relate to the ones of hiv?
Avatar f tn most likely its not related to hiv as not everyone has got hiv.. however, you need to test for hiv and other stds since you had unprotected sex with a person of unknown status.. for hiv ,test at 6-8 weeks post exposure for a good indication of your status.. test again at 3 months for a conclusive result..all the best..
Avatar m tn Hi ran271, You had protected sex all the time, and never had a chance to get hiv. Those are not symptoms of hiv. You don't have it. Take care.
Avatar f tn It was predominantly on chest and shoulder. It wasn't on palms or hands or face. Then as the rash started,I got fever upto 100F. Three days later,rash fever and fatigue all went away. The rash was small reddish dots but were isolated from each other. It wasn't raised in any way and was not confulent and there was no bump., not a single one. It has been one yearwasted this happened. My weight is same, I am completely healthy. But, the fear remains. Based on my expoaurs, I know it wasn't a risk.
Avatar n tn I have the same situation. It started a little while after I gave birth. It is only an itchy inner labia. No other side affects. I was tested for a yeast and bacteria infections. My ob-gyn has no clue (I went to 2). It comes and goes and is itchy!! I can not figure this out!!!
Avatar m tn next day itchy blotchy type of rash on my trunk which went off on it's own in two days, diarrhea for one day,nausea,tingling in my fingers,white tongue,joint pains,headaches..3rd itchy palms and soles associated with peeling of skin.. .all these symptoms went off on 5th day, but only yellowish/white phlegm from throat was coming after all the symptoms disappeared ..I did visited that CSW again just to ask about her status for which she said she is HIV negative..
