Rash

I had unprotected sex about almost a year ago. I got tested at 8 weeks and it was negative. I haven't got another test yet. recently I developed very itchy legs and some spot on my side. Could this be an HIV rash? There are no individual spots on my legs, just red areas around the hair follicles. There is nothing on my back or face. some redness on my upper chest but only around where the hair is. I'm freaking out. Can't work, sleep, or sit still.

Your 8 week test at that time was very reliable,close to 100%,as Doctors on this forum are saying.If you are so worried take another test. and never rely on "symptoms" when it comes to HIV.
