HIV rash: The rash of HIV is very non-specific, occurs within 2 months of contracting the virus and is associated with flu like symptoms. The rash is usually itchy and has small red bumps, usually starts on the trunk, sometimes small ulcers in the mouth. Very similar appearing rashes occur because of many viral infections however, and if you believe you have been exposed to hiv, it is best to get tested.
