Hiv ARS symptoms STRAIGHT into full blown AIDS?
      #256888 - 08/08/11 01:15 PM

I have posted about my risk before, unprotected oral (msm) me giving, no ejaculation. tested negative at 6 weeks with a 4th gen duo.

my question is more out of curiosity, although i am scared it MAY apply to me too. Kaposi's sarcoma is an infection related to full blown AIDS. Is it possible to go from ARS, straight into full blown AIDS?

I ask this because i have a pink patch of skin on my arm (mum is absolutely positive it was from a burn when i dropped a plate full of microwaved curry fresh out on my hands, and some went on my arms).

I am confused whether it is in fact a burn, (Which seems the most likely case) or whether it is infact a kaposi's sarcoma patch? The patch did sting when touched, which makes sense for it to be a burn, unless karposi's sarcoma patches sting when touched as well? I scratched the irritated skin and the 'burnt skin' came off, leaving raw pink skin underneath which was painful. do kaposi's sarcoma patches simply peel off like this? the raw skin scabbed over and the scab remained for 3 weeks. the scab then fell off leaving healed pink skin (that is still pink today).

the patch looks almost scaly and shiny. Is it a kaposi's sarcoma patch> can it really present itself 2 months after possible exposure? Surely if i had full blown aids i would be a very sick person?

i will do... haha

so to you that doesn't sound like a kaposi's sarcoma lesion? i've seen google images and it looks like those things will NOT just scab over and peel off like a burn would.

what about a irritated throat for 2 months? with petechiae spots? like 3 on each arm? is that suggestive of hiv?
