No, it doesn't.

Here is a picture (not very close up) that shows the most typical rash.

It is usually more like tiny red bumps (smaller than acne bumps)

thanks doc. my rash is no way near to that pic...
or is there another type of hiv rash?
Expert:  Dr. Abby replied 4 years ago.
This is the most common appearance.
In some instances, it can present as blisters, hives or pustules (whiteheads).

But again, it will usually look most like this rash.
