Answer

Please refer to my responses to "Rashes and HIV" (http://www.thebody.com/Forums/AIDS/SafeSex/Archive/Symptoms/Q52112.qna) and "What's exactly a rash?" (http://www.thebody.com/Forums/AIDS/SafeSex/Archive/Symptoms/Q13055.qna).

Rashes can be caused by many different things, many of which have no long term significance. If you really have questions about a rash that you are experiencing, see your primary physician or a dermatologist.
