I have had petechia off and on for long time due to arthritis. According to my doctor the little spots can occur for a lot of reasons. If you had an actual exposure from one of the 3 primary ways that HIV is transmitted, the only way to know for sure is to test,then you will know.

Good luck!

If you had a negative HIV test at least 90 days after your possible exposure, you do not have to worry about HIV. If you haven't had a test, please do not try to self-diagnose with symptoms. It doesn't work and the only way to know for sure is to take an HIV antibody test.
