HIV rash

Hi guys,

Could you please advice on how to distinguish HIV rash from a regular one? I was with a girl about 5 weeks ago and I got kind of sick a week after. But what bothers me the most that about 3 days ago I got some red rash right in a middle of my chest and sometimes I can feel some discomfort it that area. It’s about 10 close together pimples like rash. Is acute HIV rash covering big area?
