Hello,

Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

I am sorry to hear about your skin rash. The good news is since you have previously tested negative for HIV at 3 and 6 months, you are HIV negative and the rash is not a result of HIV. All HIV tests, when performed in a laboratory or in the presence of a medical professional, are considered conclusive at 3 months after your last high risk exposure. Since your first test was at 3 months, this is considered conclusive and you are HIV negative. In addition, HIV has no specific symptoms. This means symptoms vary from person to person, with a common symptom of newly diagnosed individuals being flu like symptoms. The only way to know for sure if you have HIV is to get tested, which you have done and have been found to be negative. If your symptoms continue to bother you, please see your nearest medical professional to determine any other cause and the proper treatment.

AIDS Vancouver recommends that all sexually active people be tested on a regular basis for all STI's, including HIV. Please feel free to contact us if you have any more questions. You may also refer to this[ website ](http://www.avert.org/fact-sheets-hiv-prevention.htm)for further information on HIV.

Best wishes,

Mary
