sore throat followed by rash

May 12, 2001

I am now 8 1/2 weeks past possible exposure. (receiving orally, no cum but do not know if there was precum.)Is it possible to have ars symptoms some time apart? I had a sore throat from week 4 to week 7 and it promptly dissapeared. I checked several times for fever, and never could say that I have one. Problem here is that my normal body temperature is at least 1 ferinheit degree below normal. I have now noticed a rash, which I have had at least two weeks, but maybe much longer. A very light rash on my chest, not on my back, arms, or face. I have also noticed some peripheral neuropathy the last couple of weeks. (I know that you say it does not occur in ARS, but it has been identified in at least one major study at 4). If the sore throat was part of ARS, is it likely that there would still, or newly be a rash now?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

These are unanswerable questions. All is possible.
