Allergy or Virus: It can be an allergic reaction or a viral rash like hand, foot, and mouth disease which is causing appearance of the small red bumps.

HIV: Sounds like you're having some pretty common health annoyances & are worried they're due to HIV. First, the chance of of getting HIV from 1 encounter is very low (1 in 1250 exposures for vaginal penetration). The oral HIV tests are pretty accurate (about 92%) but to be extra sure and give you peace of mind, call your gyn or PCP to get a blood test. It's quick and confidential. Good luck! ...Read more

Noticed a rash on the top of my hands today (little red bumps) but I didn't touch anything that should cause a rash. Steven-johnson syndrome?
