Seroconversion and folliculitits?

Aug 8, 2002

Hi doctor,

Six weeks ago I had unsafe sex with a girl. Two weeks later I had to visit my doctor and it turned out that I had been infected with Chlamydia. I had to use doxycycline for 10 days.

Since three days I suffer from a rash on both my shoulders. It looks like red dots with a little yellow center. My doctor 'diagnosed' it as folliculitis. Because he wasn't very convincing, I still wonder (am a bit scared) if this could be a symptom of seroconversion.

Thanx for any reaction, kind regards.

Response from Mr. Kull

I can't tell you if your symptoms are related to HIV infection. You should rely on your doctor to make that diagnosis.


I feel like I have symptoms of HIV..Scared
