Is the acute HIV rash supposed to be itchy and hive-like? Also, does anyone know if it should react to antihistamines like Allegra? Thanks!

The so called HIV rash is hard to describe. That's because it is different on each person. Basicly it is non itchy has a red background and pimples. It usually is on the upper trunk [chest shoulders back etc.] It more than likely is associated with other symptomc ie. fever, flu like feeling etc. Hope this helps D.J.
