Afternoon doc. Honestly I had unprotected sex with sex on the 8th, the day after I caught a cold, after I took the cold medicine a few days later a small lesion appeared in the forearm, left calf, thigh, near the armpit, and back and not too prominent color stripes / spots are the same as the skin color is not red, white, purple or black and the distance is far apart (no itching / heat / pain). I have no fever / fever in my throat here etc. For the time being and my body is healthy without any taste but the lesions are still in the same shape with spots / spots “the distances are far apart and faint in color. Am I in the category of HIV symptoms or drug allergies?
Hello, thanks for the question.
HIV is a virus that attacks the body's immune system so that people infected with the virus are susceptible to disease. HIV can be transmitted from one person to another through bodily fluids, such as blood, sperm, or vaginal fluids. Usually transmitted through sexual contact, syringes, blood transfusions, or from mother to child she is carrying. HIV is not transmitted through saliva, sweat, touch, or mosquito bites. The initial symptoms of a viral infection are generally not typical, similar to the symptoms of the common cold and occur 1-2 months after the infection occurs and usually do not appear immediately after we are infected. Symptoms can include fever, cough, runny nose, chills, headaches, etc. which can last up to several weeks. Follow-up symptoms can vary, can cough a runny nose, high fever, rashes on the skin, shortness of breath, weight loss, weakness, and so forth. Skin complaints that you experience can also be caused by other causes that are more frequent, such as drug allergic reactions, food allergies, air allergies, etc. It can also be due to inflammation or infection of the skin by viruses, bacteria, or fungi, and can also be due to contact with substances / substances that cause allergies or are irritating to the skin. If complaints arise and you are at risk of HIV transmission, it should be checked by a doctor, the doctor will conduct a question and answer and physical examination, and may recommend an initial examination or screening for patients- patients with suspected HIV infection. So that the illness will be clearer and the treatment given can be more adequate. HIV is dangerous if left untreated, because the virus attacks the body's defense system so we will be more susceptible to infection or other diseases, so we need treatment from a doctor. To avoid transmission, you should be loyal to one partner, do not change sexual partners, use a condom during intercourse, avoid using used needles, and others. To relieve skin complaints, you should keep the skin moist, you can use regular skin moisturizers, wear protective clothing or gloves at risk of exposure to causes of complaints, avoid direct exposure to UV rays, use sunscreen when outdoors, take regular baths using deodorant soap, and do a healthy lifestyle.
Thus, hopefully useful.
