Primary hiv rash symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Primary hiv rash symptoms


Avatar m tn Does my exanthem look like the Primary HIV Infection rash? Is it possible to have this rash without fever? Could my exanthem just be caused by my actual high-stress situation? And, for last, could somebody tell me how to find detailed pictures or descriptions of the Primary HIV Infection rash on the net? Thank you very much for your help and informations, thank you. Take care.
Avatar n tn however... i would just like to know the very first primary symptoms of hiv. would you link these symptoms with hiv infection ( the above mentioned)?
Avatar m tn If you are JUST active orally, you dont need to worry about HIV. As the symptoms go, fever (101+) sore throat, and body rash are the most common symptoms and they tend to happen around the same time. You having just dry cough is not a primary symptom for HIV. You can get tested at 3 month mark (after your last sexual exposure, not including oral sex), and the result would be accurate.
Avatar f tn Does this sound like the symptoms of primary HIV infection? If no then what? 2. Does HIV almost always have a high fever and rash? 3. Realistically, what are my chances the antibodies could have shown up on my first test only 2 weeks after my last possible exposure? 4 weeks? 7 weeks? I know it can take up to 3 months. I just want to know chances. 4. If my body is newly battling the herpes infection will it take longer than usual for HIV antibodies to show up?
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 n tn Two weeks later developing rash, but without any other symptoms. Is there any website showing images of rash developed during the primary HIV infection. If you can provide the links, well be much appreciated. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Hi my name is Nadia Hi i was wondering if you could tell me about one thing. A month ago a had an unprotected sex with a girl. After 10 days i saw under my neck a red spot. But i hadn't a fever and any hiv symptoms. Please help me.
Avatar f tn Symptoms of primary HIV infection occur at 2-4 weeks post exposure, and last for 1-2 weeks. Please kindly move on if you have already received an assessment of your risk of HIV.
Avatar n tn I watched a crime special today about a Ugandan man that intentionally infected female victims with HIV. For the first time I heard about primary hiv infection as one of the woman got a severe rash and had weight loss 4 weeks after infection. This horrified me as I was date raped 6 weeks ago, he did not use a condom but did withdraw. He is hetro-sexual and 23 years old, he is not a intrevenous drug user.
Avatar n tn But if you believe you have either or both of these, see a health professional immediately. HIV isn't the concern; I doubt primary HIV infection has ever presented with that combination, without other symptoms typical of ARS. But there are other conditions associated with those abnormalities that are much more dangerous, especially in the short term, than HIV. The web is not the place to sort this out. See a health care provider within 24 hours.
893188 tn?1243546742 soo far i been researchin like crazy almost everyday, so i pretty much know what side affects come with the disease based on the internet for primary hiv, i tested my self for hiv syphilis gonorrhea and hepatitis b 9 days after the incident and the results all came negitive, but i knew it was too early for hiv even for the other ones too but i needed somthing too eez the mind. soo far the only symptoms i have had is ..
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 m tn My doctor told me today after the X-Ray of my lungs that he can see some problems with bronchi and that my symptoms could relate to it. Do you think these could be symptoms of primary infection or rather it is some kind of flue like illness? Thank you for your answer.
Avatar n tn 4) Would it make sense that a rash associated with HIV last 8 weeks and symptoms such as diareaha, stiff neck, sore armpits would happen through out the eights weeks with the stiff neck and sore armpits just starting at about week 6? 5) Would this exposure be something that would suggest testing? I am concerned that I could put my family in jepordy. Am I safe to have unprotcted sex with my wife? Thanks for your support and opinions they really do help.
Avatar m tn HIV questions belong in the HIV prevention forum, but a quick answer to your question - You wouldn't get symptoms of HIV nearly this fast, and oral sex is really low risk for HIV. Any follow up questions need to be posted in the HIV forum.
Avatar m tn No rash after 3 days He informed me that HIV usually causes non exudative pharyngitis and not exudative tonsillitis. No ulcers on mouth or genitals Fever had resolved by the time I saw him No Lymphadenopathy. He informed me that I had Mono mostlikely because: Elevated liver enzymes Exudative tonsillitis with Negative Strep culture. He ordered a Monospot test and it came back positive. So alls well that ends well. I was relived.
Avatar m tn Dear all, Is there anyone to explain me how a primary hiv rash looks like? I am worried alot regarding the rashes over my shoulders., Thank you.
Avatar f tn The chances are low that you were infected as you went in protected-test only for peace of mind @ 3 months if you need to, otherwise you should be fine.
Avatar m tn Does this sound like a rash of HIV primary infection and do you think I am at risk as I had unprotected oral sex as descirbed above. I have but steroid cream on the rash ie hydrocrtison 0.1% which seems to be improving it- would this also happen with the rash of HIV primary infection. Thanking you. Yours in anticipation.
Avatar m tn i started using antibiotics and paracetamol for 10 days , throat was healed and also temperature is getting better . i got no rash no ulcers no swollen glands .. does this sound like primary aids symptoms and do i have to be tested ...
Avatar m tn All test were negative and thats great and everything, but that still does not explain my symptoms. I can't help but feel like I'm a rare case where HIV does not show up until much later then normal. Please a little help or advice.
Avatar m tn Transmission can occur after a single exposure, but it's very rare. In addition, your symptoms really don't sound at all like those of a new HIV infection. A temperature of only 99.6 isn't high enough to suggest HIV, which usually causes rather high temperature (101 or higher). The various skin problems don't suggest HIV at all. They also aren't typical for any STD.
Avatar m tn During this primary HIV infection symptoms usually include fever, sore throat, headache, diarhea, swollen lymph nodes and a rash. I have experainced all but sore throat and rashe. in addition persistant headache, stomach ache, loss appetite and diarrhea. During this window period eaither 6 weeks - 3 months test show negative result. However antibodies can be produced during the 4th week which has been the average for those tested positive.
1607190 tn?1297961879 but I'm dead scarred that could the intense headache which lasted a day and the unexpected diarrhea 15 times which dehydrated me be due to my body experiencing acute HIV symtoms (symptoms)(primary)??? Please let me know. I am worried sick, can't study, can't do anything and can't even sleep due to anxiety.
Avatar n tn If you are concerned about your symptoms see a doctor. You don't have an HIV concern.
Avatar m tn She was exibiting a rash on her upper back which she told me was due to acupuncter could it have really been a early HIV rash and if so what would be the chance of getting HIV from protected oral and vaginal sex. I am so scared I just committed suicide by sex! My doctor told me this was highly unlikely but he also said getting Hrpes was unlikely and look how thats turning out.
Avatar f tn I have had a terrible rash on my neck and chest. Could never fall asleep last night the pain was so intense. Sharp, shooting, searing pain. Called the office this morning and they made an appt. to look at this rash tomorrow afternoon. I asked her if she could order an analgesic script for me until then and she said no, because the incivek rash does'nt have pain associated with it. She said it may be shingles because this tx lowers the resistance.
