HIV/AIDS symptoms look like
HIV rash is a common symptom of HIV infection. Around 85% of HIV positive individuals will experience a rash at some point in their infection, due to either:
- Acute HIV infection
- A weakened immune system caused by chronic infection
- A bad reaction to anti-HIV medication
If you are worried that your rash might be due to an undiagnosed HIV infection, you can order a HIV testing kit from our team of online doctors and learn your status within 2 days.
