Hiv rash

Edited , 3 users are following.

Just under 4 weeks ago I had unprotected sex with a female. She said she hasn't had sex for 6 months or so before me and is clean. We did some tests last week on her and these are the results. image


Now I have a rash on my shins and I am worried. Could this be a hiv rash?



Many thanks for any help or advice

    Hi Paul

    That test is negative. If you have any serious concerns, do another in 4 weeks. But it is incredibly unlikely.

    That 'rash' doesn't appear to be HIV either? Most likely something innocuous. Could be anything from a flea bite that has been irritated to vasculitis symptom on the other end of the scale but that, again, is unlikely based on the one sole area of note.

    RE the face - I have no idea what you are looking at there?

    Sounds like you're being overly worried and noticing things as you inspect closer.

    Her results is negative. Providing that you haven't had unprotected sex with anyone else during that time, your results should be the same as hers. Anxiety and stress could cause you to break out as well. Try your best to stay calm. You can get a 4th generation test done.
