Acute rash

Hi, I am currently in Thailand on holiday, and 3 days ago I slept with an English girl unprotected. I asked her the next day if she had slept with anyone else on her holiday and she said yes another english guy unprotected in Bangkok. Now I am convinced I have HIV. The englishman could have slept with an Thai worker in Bangkok and got HIV! Then given it to her and passed it to me!

I now have a rash 3 days after all over my body. No other symptons. Could this be acute HIV symptons?

You need to get tested. Take a DUO at 28 days ((no later)) as an indication to your status. Follow up at 3 months with an antibody test for a conclusive result.
A rash at this stage can't be related to HIV.
