Rash, Sunburn Like?
      #13503 - 12/10/00 05:16 AM

Has anyone had a sunburn like feeling or outbreak on the skin? Did you test negative at 3 or 6 months? I felt like I had a minor sunburn, then I later found out that the acute retroviral syndrome rash is supposed to be like a sunburn. I had too look real hard to see any differences in my skin as I normally don't examine my skin (only did so after I became worried about being infected). This sensation was on my chest, arms, and back and lasted about a week. The sensation also itched quite a bit. Could this be ARS related?

PS, it was not a sunburn because I hadn't been out in the sun lately, nor had I worn any clothes exposing my arms or shoulders or back.

Any number of things can make the skin breakout or have a sunburned like appearance. Wind, sun, cold to name three. The key here is that you had to look really hard to see something and you didn't worry about it till after you read about ARS. Be careful. Symptoms you put in your mind have an amazing way of showing up in your body. Keep in mind ARS is more flu like symtoms that all come on together. If you are uncertain of your status, then get a test.
