hiv rash

I had high risk exposures on aug 29th 2013.
on sept 22 I went to emergency room cuz
I was feeling hot flashes. The doctor gave me steriod shot
on my butt check. After 2 days I went to my regular doctor
she prescribed me an antibiotic sulfameth trimethoprim 800/160..
The next day I had rashes on my upper chest and back. Then on sept
27th I took a 4th generation hiv dou test p24antigen and antibody.
the result was negative. Then on oct 11th 6 weeks after the exposure s
I took same test dou 4th genaration. . It was negative. Does the 4th
generation test conclusive after 28 days and 6 weeks ? I still have tghe rashes. I think im allergic to sufa antibiotic. . Pls help me!im going crazy.

3 months post exposure is when you can obtain your conclusive negative test result.

Do I have hiv cuz of the rash?

3 months post exposure is when you can obtain your conclusive negative test result.  Symptoms or lack of will not tell you anything about your status.

The rash is NOt ars. The timing is wrong and it would be accompanied by a very high fever.
Your test is conclusive. Teak will disagree but then the doctors will disagree with Teak.

Wrong, there are no tests marketed or sold to give a conclusive negative test earlier than three months post exposure.

A negative result with a DUO test at 4 weeks is good but it's not conclusive by any means--3 months is conclusive.There are no shortcuts with HIV window periods.

How long does hiv rash last? I still have the rash until now
.its been 1 month and 1 week. I have been stressed out since sept 25. I never experienced high fever only the rash.

If one has symptoms they come on at 2-4 weeks and last 1-2 weeks.

I have to test again at 12 weeks? I had 4th generation duo done at 28 days
and 3rd generation elisa antibody test at 30 days. And 4th
generation duo p24antigen and antibody test done
at 6 weeks. All test are negative results. I spent almost
600 dollars on the tests thru lab corp..
