Ars?
      #175481 - 02/16/06 06:15 PM

The rash, do the red spots appear too look like cherry angioma spots?

also lymph pain, is it continuous or intermittent? I am wondering because I experience these quick pains lasting about 3-30 seconds in my neck/groin/armpits/ and my back.

i know the only way to know is to get tested but i still have 6 weeks to go and i am just trying to learn as much as possible.

(I am the orignal poster)

The spots are NOT perfectly round circles. they are very blotchy and unsymmetrical. They look like tiny blood vessels and remind me somewhat of a spider.

I am now back to square one scared to DEATH I have ARS. I have a rash that resembles tiny vein - looking marks....red.......vertical lines on my chest. The area is about 3 inches wide and wraps around the center of my chest like a band. Upon closer look the marks are red and blotchy.....but have that "veiney" look. I used a condom but now I am so scared all over again.

hi

regards from india

Diagnosis based on symptoms is improper, only a HIV test can give the answers you seek.

Acute retroviral syndrome--the acute flu/mono-like illness a person experiences approximately three weeks after infection.

The type of rash associated with ARS is usually described as maculopapular (lesions that are small, colored, flat, and raised), is painless, doesn't itch, and is located on the trunk of the body (sometimes the face as well).

Goodluck

--------------------
Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

Love Ravi
