I had unprotected vaginal sex with two girls which I met on dating site and in dance club white traveling in Thailand. It was very stupid. On both occassion it happened because I was drunk which I am regretting every day. After 2 weeks, my body started itching and I got 3 rashes due to itching on my inner thigh and 1 rash on my leg. These rashes disappeared after few days and new 3-4 rashes came on my back and on my right bisep which are going away. Rashes are coming and going away. Rashes are suddenly appearing beacuse of itching. For example, yesterday I felt very itchy on my buttock and then I scratched and got rash there. All the rashes are leaving dark spot after they are gone. Just to mention I have no other symptoms. Also, I would like to mention that I was stressed and facing lot of anxiety because of my unsafe sex. I am worried whether these are HIV rashes or some thing else like heat rash since its very hot wheather here. I would really thankful to all the help and guidance on this problem.

Hello and thanks for contacting AIDS Vancouver with your question.

It seems you are concerned that the symptoms you are having might be HIV related after having unprotected sex with people of unknown status. We are glad to provide some information.

We do not use symptoms to determine the HIV status of an individual. This is because some symptoms can be caused by other viral infections that are not related to HIV. The only way to determine your HIV status is getting an HIV test. From the information you provided please note that having unprotected vaginal sex is regarded as a High Risk activity. This means that the activity has repeatedly been associated with HIV infections. We recommend that people get an HIV test after this exposure. Aids Vancouver encourages people to use HIV testing as a regular health maintenance routine. This means getting tested once or twice a year. This will help in putting your mind at rest as well as providing a chance of early intervention when it is required.
