Small spots on upper chest, red in colour. Not itchy. Is this a symptom ov HIV, even tho had a rapid finger prick test at 27 week and result was Neg?
Doubtful but: Skin rash can be caused by many things including viral infections other than HIV.

At three months after exposure you could get an HIV nucleic acid and if that is negative, it would rule out HIV. See this site for more info. http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/guidelines/index.html ...Read more
I have developed some small to medium sized red bumps on the inside of my arms and thighs and on my back is a flat bumpy patch not red .hiv rash ?
