Dear Doctor, it has been a while since I last posted on this forum.
I have had an episode with CSW on Feb 6th 2011.
For as much as I can recall, I think I have used condom during any sexual intercourse.
But since, I was on recreational drugs at the time, I can only be 90% sure.
The problem starts 3 weeks after the encounter.
I began to have rashes on my hands, legs, and chest.
And 2 days later (which is today) I began to have a sore throat.
My question is:
During ARS, does sore throat usually appear after the rash? That is which one usually come first?
How high or low is the possibility that these maculopapular rashes and sore throat is caused by other factor than HIV?
I read the article about the "triad" during acute HIV symptoms, do the triad usually comes in the order of rash, then sore throat, then fever? Or perhaps they are just some random occurrence that the patient will experience somehow all three of them at some point in time?
Thanks again for any inputs and comments.
