Can a HIV rash occur on the chest as a red blotch with lots of small pimples?

& Can it exist alone, without other HIV symptoms?

Yes to your first question and highly unlikely to your second question.What was your exposure?

Thanks... well around June I had protected anal sex and unprotected oral sex.. where my partner's cum got into my mouth. Ever since, I hav been VERY VERY worried that I may hav contracted the virus.

I have the rash on my chest, the pimples are very small. I also have very small unusual bumps on my hand.

I have no other symptoms on HIV

I went for the test 2day and it came out NEGATIVE :D ...I guess it was anxiety/stress causing the 'symptoms'.

I am very relieved now.. Thanks everyone
