Customer Question

I had a negative HIV 1/2 abs test at 4.5 weeks after condom rupture with a csw. This test occurred on July 26th. My palms have developed a spotty redness, they do not itch but have a glazed smoothness. Could this be the hiv ARS syndrome?

Thank you very much for the very valuable information provided.

This is definitely not HIV ARS syndrome.

The glazed smoothness and spotty redness is not a sign of anything related to HIV . The rash of HIV ( ARS ) is associated with scaly redness and more of a patch with multiple dots ( red ) within the area .

Your condition is normal and does not indicate anything systemic disease nor does it indicate anything related to HIV.

You do not have any other symptoms related to HIV ARS and your tests are also negative.

Do not worry
