What do the bumps look like?

What is the size of the bumps, what is the color, or they spread out, are they clustered, is it one bump? Two bump? many bumps?

Skin problems associated with HIV happen in late stages HIV or during AIDS stage of the infection. Skin rash may occur at seroconversion, but it is a rash. Not really bumps.

At this time, anything that has to do with the skin and HIV would be a rash. Not bumps. And I don't have any bumps on my wrist. I don't think i've ever had. How long has that bump been on your wrist? If it is on your wrist you have nothing to worry about.

Any warts associated with STD would be on your private part. When it comes to physically inspecting ourselves, we should stop. If you are that worried, see a physician. When were are in panic mode, everything is amplified. A lymph node that is swollen will be perceived as a ridiculously swollen lymph node when it really is not. Professional opinion is best when it comes to physical examinations.

First of all, AIDS is the last stage of the virus. HIV is the stage before AIDS.

That bump on your wrist has nothing to do with HIV or STD. If you wake up and that bump has increased in size, or in a week's time that bump is the size of a grape, then please see a physician.

Check this out and hopefully it will put your mind at ease....

The human population on planet Earth is approximately 7 billion. There is approximately 35 million people that are HIV+. So about 0.5% or the world's population is HIV+. Of the 35 million people that are HIV+, about 60% of the people are in sub-Sahara Africa. "In 2010 there were an estimated 22.9 million people living with HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa."- UNAIDS (2011) 'UNAIDS World AIDS Day Report 2011'. So outside of Africa, about 0.1% or the population has HIV.

Last week, millions of people had unprotected sex, many of that included people that met at a bar, picked up hookers, called up a call girl. And an uncountable number of people injected themselves with drugs and shared the needle with two or three other people. HIV is very difficult to transmit. If HIV was as easy to transmit as you think, we would have millions of people infected every week, and millions of people would die a week. We would be living in a post apocalyptic-like setting if that were to happen.
