What does an HIV rash look like?

Varies

Human_immunodeficiency_virus
It can look like red blotches called kaposis sarcoma, it can be non specific rash early in the disease, amd have raised areas which can be inflammatory or signs of infection. If there is a concern testing by a MD to document whether this is HIV is very important. Do not delay be evaluated and start treatment as early as possible.

Dr. Sarah Kohl answered:

What do the rashes look like if someone has been infected with hiv? Are they small red bumps that look like insect bites that itch?

Variable

Rash
HIV is a viral infection. Some people get a rash from the virus itself, some get rashes from the medications used to treat it, and some get rashes from other infections if the HIV is untreated. Like most viral infections, it can give pink dots all over which can run together.

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.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

How long do HIV rashes last?

HIV

Skin_rash
Acute HIV infection is asymptomatic in many individuals. For others however, symptoms like skin rash and flu-like symptoms can develop within 2 to 3 weeks from the time of contracting the human immunodeficiency virus or HIV. The skin rash and other acute HIV infection symptoms then disappear within a few weeks

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.
