Characteristics Of A Rash In HIV Disease?
hello, my skin is peeling after recovering from the rash the doctor said where I was treated that I have the Singapore flu. The rash spreads all over the body and is evenly distributed and if you touch it, the affected skin feels hot, after that. Her redness wilted and I had a molt. and my illness and all my complaints were cured, is that rash in HIV like that?
Hello, Januar. Thank you for your question for HealthReplies.com. Sorry if you wait :)
After reading your complaint, hopefully you don't have to worry if you don't have risk factors for HIV infection, such as having sex either through vaginal or anal sex, sharing needles, and blood transfusions. HIV is not transmitted through shaking hands, hugging and kissing (unless the patient has mouth sores, bleeding gums and open mouth sores). In general, an HIV skin rash will appear in the first two months after being infected with the HIV virus. Symptoms of an HIV rash include itching, a red or purplish rash, a small, circular lump around the rash, mouth sores, may be accompanied by fever, sore throat, headache, swollen lymph nodes, diarrhea, and fatigue. To determine whether you are infected with HIV or not, you should consult directly with a doctor, then perform laboratory tests, such as an antibody test, an antigen test.
Some tips for you include:
1. Avoid using soap that is rich in foam, you should replace soap with baby soap for a while, so that the skin does not get dry.
2. Use condoms during sexual intercourse.
3. Avoid having sex with more than one partner.
4. Immediately consult directly with a doctor.
Thus, hopefully this is useful.
