I can’t find the answer to this question anywhere. So, I had unprotected vaginal sex with a guy a little over a month ago. The unprotected part was rather brief - mostly we used a condom. So I was only exposed to precum.
Anyway, 3 weeks later, I had flu symptoms. I felt like **** the first day and had a fever, the second day I think I may have still had a fever, but was already feeling much better, and by the third day I did not have a fever, and was feeling mostly okay. For the period that I was having symptoms, my symptoms were: fever, body aches, headache, mild sore throat.
Then about 7 days after the fever had subsided (10 days after the onset of fever), I got a rash. It was mostly located in my groin area, but also on my torso (mainly below the chest), a bit on the back of my neck, and on my hands, arms and insides of my legs. It was maculopapular and most dense around my hips, and pretty light everywhere else. I first noticed it after walking around in 100 degree heat, sweating profusely in tight jeans, so it could definitely be heat rash. But it was all over (not just under my jeans), which has me worried. It also didn’t really itch. And it lasted about a week.
Does this sound like ARS? Is it normal to have such a short fever or to have the rash occur a week after resolution of the initial symptoms?
I’m getting tested, so this isn’t a substitute for the test. Just anxious and want to know what I should expect.
