Hello. I had a risky exposure recently where I was performing insertive anal and the condom failed. I was drunk so I did not realise until ejaculation. The woman I performed on was risky (needle drug user). I know it’s definitely a risk and I plan to get checked at the appropriate checkpoints.
I know symptoms aren’t a very good indicator but I just wanted to know what ARS rash looks like. 6 days after exposure I noticed these insect bite like marks on my arms - is this too soon? They came in clusters and lines of three (on both forearms, my right shoulder, and a line of 3/4 on my upper back). I then had one or two dotted maximum around elsewhere on my body (nothing on my trunk or abdomen). It’s February and I live in Canada so there’s no chance it would be mosquito bites. I’m now over two weeks post exposure and they’re still here but have faded considerably. I was wondering whether this sounds like HIV rash? It doesn’t look much like the ones I’ve seen online as they are far more widespread and less localized.
I then developed a very feint sore throat on day 8 which I still have now, and a mild persistent headache which comes and goes through the day.
