Does the rash in acute HIV usually affect a large portion of the body or could it be localized to one cheek (face) and shoulder?
Response from Dr. Conway
The rash is often generalized and accompanied by other symptoms, such as fever or pains in the muscles. However, it may be more localized, usually to the chest or shoulders, but it could also be more localized to the face, less commonly.
