Hi, we advise risk issues here. What was your risk?
A few weeks ago, I had unprotected sexual contact with a woman who I'm not sure of her HIV status. Since then, I have shown some signs of this weird cold which lasted only one day which I guess is going around right now. I have also noticed these blotchy spots on my face which are not going away. I'm starting to become very concerned about this and I still have to go see the doctor as I am not within the time frame to get tested. Thank you.
ARS does not happen with one sign or symptom it comes in a group and last 1-2 weeks.
In these situations testing at the 3 months mark would confirm your status. Hiv is not diagnosed by symptoms but by testing. I dont mean to be abrupt but discussing symptoms could lead to a never ending post.
Okay cool. So, if I were to show any symptoms like a rash, it would be accompanied by other symptoms. What publication is this information from?
