Would KS sores appear and disappear within a couple of days? I
had a small (dime-sized) bruise appear on my forearm, then
disappear within two or three days. Near the end of that period,
I started feeling symptoms of a chest cold, that is, sensation in
my lungs with an occasional cough, and in general I've felt just
a little under the weather the last few days.

What I'm wondering, is does this sound like KS or another AIDS
symptom? There's no more bruise, but the chest-cold symptoms

This *could* just be a cold, and a bruise from lugging my bike
around the other day...I would wait and see if the chest symptoms
subside as the bruise did...unless this is potentially a sign of
something serious. Does anybody know?

Please reply online. Thanks in advance

KS does not look like a bruise, and it does not go away within a
few days. KS is very dark purple or brown, relatively opaque and
long-lasting. Sounds to me like you have a cold.
