Rash (Definition)

Most bumps and blotches on a newborn baby are harmless and clear up by themselves. By far the most common skin problem in infants is diaper rash.

Had unprotected vaginal , did HIV combo, negative at 8 1/2 weeks , started to experience a rash on my chest at nine weeks is there any relation to have symptoms after that amount of time?

Had unprotected vaginal , did HIV combo,  negative at 8 1/2 weeks ,  started to experience a rash on my chest at nine weeks is there any relation to have symptoms after that amount of time?

For sure not HIV: Negative combo test at 8+ weeks proves you do not have HIV. And of course a hundred things other than HIV can cause skin rash. Also, rash is never the only symptom of an HIV infection; there would also be fever and a number of other symptoms. Finally, 9 weeks definitely is too late for onset of HIV symptoms. See a doctor if the rash continues, but for sure you don't have HIV. ...Read more

Child has faint red rash on cheeks and chest, does not itch, only other symptom is congestion which he has has for a month (allergies) should I worry?

Should be seen.: It is difficult to diagnose a rash without seeing it. There are many viruses which cause rashes, but strep can cause a rash as you have described also. I would recommend you call your child's doctor and have he or she take a look, so that your child can be diagnosed properly and receive any necessary treatment. ...Read more

Can there be only 1 symptom after 3 weeks hiv exposure? I have some pimple non patchy like rash on neck and chest

Can there be only 1 symptom after 3 weeks hiv exposure? I have some pimple non patchy like rash on neck and chest

May be: There is no consistency to symptoms of HIV. None of the tests is 100% at three weeks. In about 12 weeks, you should get a test of HIV nucleic acids, if negative, it will essentially rule out HIV infection. ...Read more
