Early Hiv Skin Rash
If skin rash occurs in the early stage of HIV, is it possible for only a --single-- flat rash to occur?
Get tested: Symptoms are too variable to serve as an indication of HIV infection. If you had exposure, get tested. You may wish to get a HIV nucleic acid test at about 3-4 months exposure. If it is negative then, and you did not have any more exposures, you could consider yourself free of HIV. ...Read more

Itchy skin rash all over body (except for face, neck, palms and soles) for 14 days. NO fever, NO flu-like symptons, NO lymph node. Can it be HIV ARS?
Rash: It sounds more likely that it is an allergic reaction to something. The fact that it is not on the palms and soles of your feet makes other bad things less likely. Skin rashes are hard to diagnose and the diagnosis depends on where the rash is, the color, whether there are blotches, raised bumps and many other things. You can buy benadryl (diphenhydramine) in the pharmacy for itching and if it persists see DR. ...Read more

Scared for HIV exposure. Red skin under the head of my penis. No other symp.Possible exposure was 5 wks ago. Rash wouldn't just show up now, would it?
This is not HIV: HIV does not announce itself as a rash on your penis in any case. Chances are that this is a minor hygiene problem or perhaps mild allergy to clothing or detergent. If it stays around for 2 weeks or more, get it seen, or if it's painful, get evaluated now for possible herpes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had a quater skin infecction with puss and oil that looked like road rash and a week later one formed on my arm, could this be related to hiv?
HIV: This sounds like a case of cellulitis, possibly with staphylococci with recurrence. Whether it has anything whatever to do with HIV would only be significant if you have the disease, and have become profoundly immunosuppressed as a result of long-standing untreated disease. If you are concerned about possible exposure go and get tested. The 4th generation immunoassays are excellent. ...Read more

Unlikely, see MD!: What you describe is unlikely to be hiv. Without a picture of the rash i would assume it is thrush (candida) or genital herpes. Whatever it is, it needs to be treated. Furthermore, you need to be checked for other sexually-transmitted disease that do not necessarily cause immediate symptoms, i.e. Chlamydia, syphilis and hiv, see a physician stat; if you have no regular physician go to a sti clinic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
