Rash on leg

I have had a test done so ill find out for sure soon, but im worried now because theres a sort of rash at the top of my right leg. There little bumps and theres also some on my stomach on the right side as well. Is this a concern? Im not sure exactly how long its been there. I know its said if you get any symptons it happens the first 2-4 weeks, although this is 15 weeks ago is it still possible symptons can show up?

Here is a better picture, does it look like a rash that could be caused by HIV?

Your rash is not related to ARS. It does not fit either the timing or the pattern.

And spare us your pictures next time- we don't make such diagnoses on this forum.

You are wasting your time looking at your body for symptoms- they don't mean anything concerning your status.

Thanks for your reply. Sorry, i thought including pictures would help, but you are very much right about not wasting time looking for symptoms. Im making myself panic over it so much, i just have to wait to get the results back and thats the only way to know for sure.

Ive now noticed on my other leg near the top there is another rash but its just a red area, not little bumps like on my other leg. Does this sound like anything to worry about? I really have got to stop looking all over my body because every little i thing i see that seems different now its making me so paranoid.
