, I have had sex with a man who I don’t know whether he is HIV positive or not. I was in touch with him about 4 months ago. and now I often have rashes on my skin, some are itchy and some don’t, is it just an allergy or a normal skin reaction?. Then I got prickly heat accompanied by wounds such as burns that feel very itchy in the groin, the prickly heat has disappeared but the burns that feel very itchy are hard to go away in the groin, is it fungal infection?. and now my throat feels bad. From all of that, is it certain that I have HIV? I don’t experience other hiv symptoms such as fever, diarrhea etc

Hello good morning Andrew.


A skin rash that doesn't itch can be an early symptom of HIV infection, but other conditions can cause the same symptoms, including:

Eczema/dermatitis

psoriasis, which is a skin disease caused by an autoimmune condition (the body's defense cells cannot recognize the body's own cells so they attack the body's own cells). In this condition, in addition to attacking the skin, the joints of the body are also attacked
ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura), which is the appearance of a red rash due to very low platelet levels

Pityriasis rosea, a skin disease of unknown cause, which is characterized by red rashes, slightly protruding from the surface of the skin. May be accompanied / not accompanied by itching.
etc

While sores in the groin that feel very itchy can be caused by:

fungal infection (ringworm)
scabies infection (scabies)
eczema due to irritation
bacterial infection
etc

People infected with HIV will initially experience flu-like symptoms in the first few weeks after infection, then usually do not complain of any symptoms for several years later. Common symptoms include:

prolonged fever
a rash appears on the body that doesn't itch
prolonged diarrhea
sore throat
joint and muscle pain
continuous weight loss
etc

It is very difficult to diagnose a skin disease without examining it directly. It is highly recommended that you see a doctor for a direct examination so that the cause of the complaint and its treatment can be identified. You can also consult a doctor to do an examination for HIV infection. You don't have to be ashamed to tell your risky actions (unprotected sex, for example), because your secret will be guaranteed.

That's all, hope it helps
