Try an allergist if needed ...Read more

The germ: Some group A strep germs carry an extra piece of genetic code that triggers a toxin that can cause the rash. If someone has a strep infection in their throat it usually shows up within 12 hrs of the first fever. If the infection is treated very early, it may not show up at all. A strep germ without the extra gene will not trigger the rash. Scarlet fever is an old term used back before penicillin. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is strep throat a symptom of HIV? M-M contact. No penetration. Possible saliva contact with anus. 6 days later, sore throat. Tested + for strep throat
Test for HIV: Strep throat is not a sign of HIV, but acute HIV infection can also announce itself as a bad sore throat from which strep may grow.

Yes, but...: ...this is your 3rd or 4th question because of worry about HIV in what (from another question) was an obviously low risk exposure. You appear to be irrationally concerned, and having trouble believing or accepting repeated reassurance. There's no point in repeated questions; the answers won't change. Consider counseling; I suggest it from compassion, not criticism. Good luck and stay safe. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, theoretically: Yes, it is theoretically possible that someone could get acute retroviral syndrome upon reinfection with another strain of HIV. First of all, reinfection is very, very rare but not impossible. However, reinfection with a second strain (perhaps more powerful than the original strain) theoretically could cause an acute retroviral syndrome as it is a completely new infection altogether. ...Read more
