The rash associated with ARS is "maculopapular". Do a google search on it and you will find pictures. Your rash doesn't sound like ARS related rash. Symptoms can't diagnose HIV, only a test can diagnose HIV.

Good luck.

sounds like your deoderant is irritating your armpits...if you have placed yourself at risk, however, you should be test ed.

regards from india

Diagnosis based on symptoms is often misleading. ARS symptoms occur concurrently and 2-4 weeks post exposure, as far as ARS rash is concerned, it is usually maculopapular (lesions that are small, colored, flat, and raised), is painless, doesn't itch, and is located on the trunk of the body sometimes on the face too.

Testing is the only answer for knowing your status.
