Nursing student-NEED HELP!
Feb 6, 2006

Hello, I have a question. I was in San Diego at a Hotel with my parents. When they went up to their hotel room, I ended up drinking too much, and blacked out (can't remember anything.) I remember talking to a white/some hispanic or italian guy. I think he walked me up to my room. I woke up and he was behind me, and kissed my back. I was so out of it, I can't remember what I had on. I remember him being nice if that helps. The worse part? I am married. I called my physician, and he started me on combivir and sustiva for PEP. I was on it, until day 10 I broken out in a non-itching rash everywhere. thighs, feet, legs, arms, neck. The place where there is BARELY anything is my stomach and back. It looks like razor burn, if I had to describe it. I have obsessively read about this, and this look like symptoms of Acute HIV. Does this sound like it to you? I am sorry, I am very anxious. (No fever=98.7 or 98.8), slight diarrhea, but have had that off and on since starting sustiva. PLEASE HELP :(

Response from Dr. Henry

Sounds more likely to be due to your HIV drugs than HIV. KH
