Does hiv rash itch?

Living with HIV

Hiv
Not sure what you mean by an HIV rash. Rashes are not common with HIV infection. But, rashes during the early days of being on HIV medications are common and these drug induced rashes are very itchy.

HIV

Itch
Although usually the skin eruptions occurring with acute HIV disease do not itch, it may also occur in association with itching. If you think you have been exposed, please go and get tested and stop trying to make the diagnosis by clinical symptoms. There is nothing specific enough to either diagnose it or exclude it..

Dr. Sarah Kohl answered:

What do the rashes look like if someone has been infected with hiv? Are they small red bumps that look like insect bites that itch?

Variable

Rash
HIV is a viral infection. Some people get a rash from the virus itself, some get rashes from the medications used to treat it, and some get rashes from other infections if the HIV is untreated. Like most viral infections, it can give pink dots all over which can run together.

Why do i have rashes whenever any part of my body itches?

Histamine

Body
Your body makes histamine and this causes the rash after you are itching. It is released as a signal to the body. You see red. The body is increasing blood flow to mount a response to help. It usually quickly fades.

It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.
