I'm been reading posts and your replies in this post recently. I really love the way you deal with the concerned people. When we consult experts, most of them never give a definite answer, they always say something like "it depends," "it's possible," "it varies," and etc. But your replies are not like this. Your replies can really release our concerns. Given this forum as a free service, I'd like to let you know my appreciation for your time and effort.
I might have a potential exposure to HIV virus two weeks ago, and I'm really worried about infection right now. I've done many research by myself about the acute infection symptoms, and got a question for you.
What does the acute HIV infection rash look? Are they a cluster of small bumps or apart? Two days ago, I got about 8 red rashes on my left arm. They are red spots, sparsely distributed, about 2 inches away from each other. Now, they are fading away. Are these possibly caused by HIV infection? What do the acute HIV infection rash look? They they appear in big amount and multiple areas? Do they keep growing and spreading out? How long do they last? BTW, I don't have a fever, if I do, I'll be scared to death :)
Thank you very much,
