are rashes in hiv infection look like the one in measles, which starts from the face down to feet? are they raised or flat? please describe. please

Response from Dr. Horwath

HIV infection is associated with a variety of skin manifestations. To my knowledge, none are similar to the rash seen in measles. However, if you're worried about a rash, consult a dermatologist or other physician.
