I was wondering are HIV rashes constant or do they come and go?

Depends on the rash

Hiv
The rash associated with acute HIV (red flat rash over trunk & sometimes face) occurs in 50% and is very transient. Kaposi sarcoma lesions tend to stick around a long time with or without treatment. Eosinophilic (allergic) dermatitis assoc w/HIV tends to stick around w/o therapy & fungal infections do the same. There are some specific rashes to late stage HIV which also stick around a long time

Pls I had whitish rashes at the base of my penis and it was followed by swollen iguinal lymphnodes. Could it be HIV?

Unknown

Hiv
You need to see the doctor for testing and evaluation. This is not an appropriate forum to try to get diagnosis. You must see a physician since it could be very minor or it could be a more significant issue.

Sir i have dry cough night sweating And rashes on my thies is it a HIV symptoms should i go through blood test?

Cough

Cough
Why not just think it is an upper respiratory infection?? If you have had unprotected, risky sex then testing is worth it, but maybe it is simply the "common cold."

Is hiv test negative after 1 year accurate with lots of symptoms of hiv like white coated tounge and rashes on body?

HIV test

Human_immunodeficiency_virus
You do not have HIV. Your symptoms in no way are diagnostic of HIV. HIV may be on a list of possible causes for your symptoms but it is probably down a fifty places below other causes. Yes. your test is accurate at 1 year. You do not have HIV.
