An acute HIV rash is often described as a generalized rash that typically occurs 48 to 72 hours after the onset of fever and persists for five to eight days. The upper thorax, collar region, and face are most affected with well-circumscribed, red colored macules or maculopapules. See picture for an example.

Visit a derm

Rmatologist. I would not draw any conclusions with regards to HIV bless you have reason to believe you have it, in which case, I would have that checked out even prior to going to the DERM consult.
