i'm sorry...but what does your x having a rash in his armpit have to do with anything?

do you live in the united states?  has a doctor diagnosed you with a chancroid or is this self diagnosis made over the internet?

I found a pic of it online forget name but of course it was another one of those poss symptoms, could be from anything though,,no I was only diagnosed with shingles,,the chancroid could also be Hidradenitis suppurativa, which would be fine cause it has no connection with hiv..Sorry, just hate waiting, never had anything like shingles before, and I hate it,,,Also hate internet, but when all you have is wait time,,and your stressed over it, seems to be the only way to feel better, and try to convince self of other possible results
