See photo: About 50% of people who get infected with HIV will have a rash 2 - 3 weeks after infection. It can be quite mild, and there can be other associated symptoms like sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, loss of appetite, generalized achiness, etc. All together, about 70% of people have some sort of symptom after infection, and they last for a day to a week. Get checked if you are worried.

Multiple types: Rash in HIV will vary depending on multiple issues. If you have any doubt, get tested, HIV is a treatable infection.
