I want to ask, after 4 days after having sex my chest pimples appear and my wrist hurts what is it I got HIV please answer
Acne and joint pain in the wrist can be caused by many causes, one of which is viral and bacterial infections, impact or injury, joint disorders and others. Viral infection itself varies, whether it causes skin infection or HIV infection. Not always HIV causes early symptoms but also not always the initial symptoms that appear are caused by the HIV virus.
HIV itself can be transmitted in various ways, one of which is through unprotected sexual relations with HIV sufferers, the use of unsterilized joint needles, through blood products contaminated with the HIV virus, through mothers to children during pregnancy, childbirth or breastfeeding.
If you previously had sexual intercourse with a person with no known medical history, it is best to do an examination because this is an action that carries a risk of HIV transmission. Self-examination can be done as early as 3 weeks after exposure or ideally 3 months after exposure where if there is transmission antibodies will form which will be detected on the examination. If you get negative results later, you can repeat the examination 3 months later to make sure whether it is really negative or not.
Avoid risky actions so that things do not harm you or others where until now HIV infection has not been completely treated and also acts of unhealthy sexual intercourse can be at risk of transmission of sexually transmitted infections.
