ARS Rash

I had unprotected sex with a new-ish partner 6 weeks ago. I have had a 4 week negative test. On saturday I noticed some red areas on my knees, (didn't look like bumps - just a red area on the inside of my knees) and today I have a bit of an itchy rash on my stomach and I developed a single hive on my arm. I have never had fever or any other symptom, really, except for some diarrea (diarrhea).

Does ARS rash always present with fever? if I had an ARS rash...wouldn't it be all over my body...not just in a few isolated areas? Can anyone speak to this?

ARS if you have it is always present with a high fever. If you had a rash due to ARS it doesn't itch.

I found another hive on my butt-cheek. It def. itches...same as the one on my arm. ARS rash NEVER itches? Meaning...if it itches...I'm ok? (for ARS rash)
