I had a unsafe sex 5 month ago and a two weeks ago I had strep throat and like month ago I have a small rash on the bottom of my back is that an hiv?

HIV is Hard to get: If you got HIV and got a full body rash two to three weeks after exposure then this would be a possible explanation. But, five months? Nope not likely. It is something else. Do not forget that if you have a high risk exposure to HIV you can prevent infection as long as you get on the post exposure prophylaxis" regimen within 72 hours. You should have a doctor who knows what to do.

Was diagnosed strep throat and now I have a blistery rash on my cheek and it is painful burns and itches what can I do to help it go away?

Hard to say: It is hard to say without visualizing this rash. Several possibilities come to mind which are common. You may have an shingles rash, which is a is a blistery, painful itchy rash which covers in the distribution of your nerve roots (dermatomes, we say) Could possibly be impetigo, a bacterial skin infection. I would start with topical neosporin for this. For treatment will need Prime Exam

See below: Most often these are related to viral illnesses that are concomitant with the strep. However, allergy to the meds is always possible. As long as there is no respiratory problems, facial, mouth, throat, eye swelling or vomiting or diarrhea associated with the rash, anaphylaxis or angioedema does not sound present. If so, go to the er asap. Otherwise, you can get the rash seen by the pcp in am.

I was taking Amoxicillin for Strep throat and 8 days in I got an itchy rash that quickly spread to my whole upper body (lower body only light rash). I'm in a third world country. What should I do?

Stop Amoxicillin: I would think it is a type III (not anaphylactic) reaction to penicillin. It is usually self limited. I would stop the Penicillin as strept thoat is usually cured with penicillins in 7 days or less. You can take anthistamines such as bendaryl or zyrtec (cetirizine) for rash or itch. It should improve on its own in a few days. If the rash does persist, or any new symptoms, seek medical care.
