Is there a chance i will have hiv. I have not had a rash so i may not. How long would the rash last?

Get tested.: The only way to know if you have HIV is to get tested for hiv. Not all people with HIV develop a rash, and many people with rashes do not have hiv. Rash is nonspecific for HIV versus other things. If you have any concern that you may be HIV positive, then visit a clinic or doc office and get tested and discuss the results with someone who has experience and can give you good information. ...Read more

HIV rash 2 weeks after? Red spot on hand not raised nor itchy, just red? How long does it last? No

HIV rash 2 weeks after? Red spot on hand not raised nor itchy, just red? How long does it last? No

What's the question?: You need to be seen by your personal physician, now. You're anxious and HIV and this won't get better until you're tested in the proper time-frame. Any new rash needs to be seen. If any Rx is new, discontinue if you can if the rash is new. I can't address the red spot on your hand and neither can anyone else. Show the same proactive spirit that brought you here and get seen now. ...Read more
