If you had no other symptoms then it is not an ARS rash. Have you tested?

That looks like a pimple. Stop freaking out.
Get the test and 3 month mark.

no, i did not have any other symptoms, unless they were so mild that i did not mention them. but what if i actually had some symptoms that i did not notice?would that be an indcation of ARS rash? however, i never ever in my life had any rash on the chest or shoulder area and that really made me concerned. i am going to test at the 6 weeks post exposure

yea test at 6 weeks, if its negative, test again past the 13th week mark to be conclusive

It is not hiv rash, take test and ask your partner status. You will have a negative result.
