regards from india

i believe i have answered a similar question, anyways...

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

Do not diagnose the symptoms, if you feel worried you may want to get your symptoms evaluated from your health care provider.

You have mentioned you are 6 weeks post your exposure, i would urge you to test at 6 weeks, since MOST who have been recently infected would test positive within 6 weeks. However irrespective of your result, you have to test again at 12 weeks for a definitive result.


stay well

take care
