I had sex with someone I don't know well while on my period and without a condom, This was a month ago,, I am waiting the results of the HIV PCR test. I got this rash over the past week. THe lesions under the breast were dramatic..sudden in onset and dark brown They have faded considerably the the little patches are a bit scaly and shiny. Does this look HIV exanthem or just simple pityriosis rosaca I have a question about differentiating a rash from HIV exanthem and pityriasis rose. One month ago I had unprotected sex during my period with a man who tells me he was HIV negative a year ago, in a monogamous relationship with a woman who tested negative a few months ago. A few days ago i had little fatigue, a little sense of being hot and sweating that was transient and resolved. I noticed dark discoloration under my armpit on one side but I didn't look at it carefully. one or two days later suddenly a bunch of oval dark brown lesions appeared just under my breasts very symmetrical with a V shape apex pointing upward at the sternum and flanking my rib cage bilaterally. Then small red pinpoint lesions appeared along my bikini line. Not too many of those but also kind of symmetric. The lesions in th armpit faded to some extent and have dark border with a central clearing. They are scaly. . The ones uder the breast have lightened partially within a few days and have white slightly rough patches. They are aligned with skin folds. I took the HIV PCR test today but I am stressed and the wait time
I just developed a sore throat and have swollen glands in my neck today which are tender. The antibody test you mentioned above is this the PCR test? Thank you for your help. Im very scared.
