Rash that does not itch

Worried Wells,

Did you got a rash that doesnt itch? did it blanch when you press it?

My rash looks dry. The rash blanch. There are times it will turn red and there are times that it goes lighter.

What does ARS rash looks like?

You had a 12 week negative result which was conclusive. Whatever your rash is see a doctor.

It does not matter in the least in your case what an ARS rash looks like, because you do not have ARS, and you do not have HIV. I second Teak's thoughts on this one. If you do have a rash, and it has been present for a bit of time, it may be time to visit with your doctor and get the thing looked at. But, whatever is causing it, it doesn't have anything to do with HIV.

Has nothing to do with HIV. See a dermatologist if you are concerned.

Hi I had un protected sex with a person that I met in a club.  I caught an STD (Gonnoreah) and the said person then went very cold on me and basically said that they didn't want to see me again. 5 weeks later I got a very bad cold which just sapped all of my energy, i had never felt such fatigue it was crazy. I also had a mild fever and some joint pain - initially i thought it was swine flu but my temperature was too low.
last week a gland in the right side of my neck began to swell and this week it has doubled in size to around 1 1/2 cm. I have no sore throat or stiffness in my neck but the gland does itch and feels quiet warm.
3 days ago a small red lump appeard on my fore arm which was initially smooth however today a couple of white heads have grown through. I can see a very fine red line from my arm pit to the red lump developing. Also on my right thigh a quite pronunced lump has also appeared which is very itch.

I have had some aching in my joints and a general feeling of being unwell but had still have a healthy appetite and no gastro problems so far.

I am very worried that I am expriencing acute stage HIV symptoms ... I would be grateful for any opinions

I had unprotected sex with a guy I am freaking out because I had a sore throat after that and the more I read the more I am feeling all these weird symptoms I can't sleep I can't eat I don't want to tell my partner that I cheated on him because if it turns out to be nothing I don't want that person to leave me so please someone tell me I am over reacted because I might died with panic attack before I even get a diagnosis

I am a female of dark complexion. Recently I visited a friend in GA. I live on the west coast. The last day of my visit we ran 5 miles around a large county park full of huge tall trees and many shrubs we don't have in San Diego. The last meal I had was wild salmon and vegetables I've eaten numerous times. When I returned home the next day I woke up with a huge red like bruise on my chest that didnt itch and 3 small dark slightly raised bumps inside the crease of my arm ( inside of elbow). Now the red bruise has turned purplish still no itch, nor pain. I dont have medical coverage. My friend and I did engage in 4 days of unprotected sex. I had a full panel blood work up about 4-5 months prior that was clean. Should I be worried. Would STD/HIV symptoms show that soon? I've been home 2 weeks. The bruising has gotten  slightly smaller, but appears much darker(purplish)) & the black raised bumps in my fold seem to have spread slightly, but no itching.  What do you suggest? Thank you!
