inner thigh rash
i have a rash on my inner thigh it was red circular blotches, and still is on my right side but on my left it has gone into one constant skin covering, with a few blotches on the outside of it, i think it is a sweat rash as i have quite big thighs and have been in a humid enviroment for the past 3 months!i have had tis rash for about a month!! could this be anything more sinister as i have had unprotected sex in this time!! but ive been told that hiv rashes ususally dissapear quite quickly and of their own accord!!

If you had a rash with a beginning HIV infection, the rash would not be rarely accompanied with one or more symptoms, which may include fever, malaise, headache, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes.

It sounds like the humid environment you reside in is to blame. If you see your doctor, he should be able to help out with the rash/

All sexually active people (especially those who are sexually active with more than once person) should be tested for HIV regularly as well. You should get tested just for a peace of mind, but I wouldn't expect a positive result.

symptoms dont diagnose hiv.  if you have had unprotected sex with someone and you didnt know their status...then it is adviseable to test.

3 months for a conclusive result
