Rash on back of hands
Sep 27, 2001

Hello Dr Feinberg,

I was wondering if you would clarify something for me. Can a rash (lichyfied) primarily on the back of the hands present with primary HIV infection?

Thanks for your time.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

A lichenified (chronic, thickened) rash on the back of the hands would be a quite unusual rash to see with HIV seroconversion.

thrush and hairy leukoplakia (second question)
Is pus cell number only 2 is good good to rule out gonnorhea
