Hiv Rash Stomach
Hi small doubt did hiv test result negative after 28 days of risk attitude but after 10 days of test found 1 rash in my stomach ,any chances?
Not HIV: HIV doesn't cause rash alone; without sore throat, fever, and/or enlarged lymph nodes, you can be sure the rash isn't due to new HIV. Also, if you had a 4th generation or "duo" test, the negative result 28 days after the last possible exposure is conclusive. If an antibody-only test, it's still around 95% reliable, but for reassurance you might get tested again at 6-8 weeks. Good luck! ...Read more

Just do an HIV test: Some people are known to get leg itching and rashes from running (cause is unknown). If it is from histamine release, one can try taking Claritin (loratadine) or Zyrtec, 1/2 hour before running. If it is from the heat, try running at sunrise. If it is from blocked sweat glands, try a sauna 3 times a week. Maybe one can make a dermatologist appointment, and then run to the clinic to show a fresh itchy rash. ...Read more

Had unprotected oral with a guy and a girl. Now white tongue. Sores in mouth Itchy rash, chills, stomach bloating gas, lose of appetite. Herpes Hiv?
Probably not: The concern is that oral sex admits the virus through the tonsils or other head-and-neck lymphoid tissue. Epidemiology shows it's not very efficient; women just aren't getting it from women this way, and catching it from a man seems difficult. Safe stuff (barrier protection, monogamy with someone hiv-negative) is still by far your best choice. ...Read more

Hi Does hiv rashes appears after 5 months and they appear frequently or they appear one after one i am talking after 5 months of hiv doubts?
Listen buddy: At five months after a risky contact, your ordinary lab screen is almost certain to be positive, and a nucleus acid based text is certain to be positive. Stop doing this to yourself, man. If your labs are clear, give thanks for good health, love safely, and get on with your life. Get the rash diagnosed by a competent physician; this isn't how HIV announces itself anyway. ...Read more

Rashes and HIV: Given the time frame you mention I am much more worried about syphilis. You must be tested. Hiv can show up with a pale full body rash, but this is rare. Syphilis can be deadly.
