Not one answer: There is no definitive rash that marks early HIV infection. Most patients do not develop any rash while others may get spots, pimples, psoriasis-like plaques, etc. Etc. If youre concerned about hiv, it is easier and faster to get an HIV test than to begin deciphering the meaning behind a rash.
