i have developed pink bumps on my arm and leg more than 12 weeks after a sexual incounter. they are pink redish adn when you scratch them they go in a weeks time and a brownish spot stay in thier place later.
in the first couple of weeks after the encounter maybe 3 weeks after i developed an itching sensation on both legs and then at week 5 i developed the same red bumps i thought they were pimples and then at week 9 i had abdominal problems lost a copule of pounds but the pimles red bumps i dont what to call then came back at week 13 after the encounter. does this sound like ARS to you guys this my first ever encounter with a sexworker and i am freakingout.
The ARS rash would appear as you develop antibodies, and that would happen usually within the first month. Its pretty distinctive, and in the one person I've seen that actually developed it, it was on the chest and torso, which is typical. I don't know how long it would last. The person I saw was started on HIV meds (he knew he had been exposed to HIV as his partner had just tested positive, so we were diligent about watching and testing him) so his rash cleared up fairly quickly. He was also very sick - high fever, etc., and ended up in the ER.
I don't know what your rash is, and I wouldn't even begin to guess. Dermatology isn't my area.
