ARS at 3 months? High fever and super itchy rash. Waiting for test results

Hello, I came her for some support and helpful feedback.

I was the insertive partner with another male, unprotected 3 months ago ://

15-12 days ago I experienced a super sore throat for about 7 days, with intermittent fever. A itchy skin rash started on my calves. 7 days later the rash began appearing in my armpits and my pelvic pubic region. My sore throat cleared up

Strep Test instant: negative 1/16/13

In the last 48 hours my rash has increased to a full blown red skin outbreak covering my entire body except palms and feet bottoms with some raised bumps on arms, hives on neck. And blotches in the groin area. Genitals are unaffected. It is super itchy, and does not respond that well to benadryll. At the same time I began having high fevers of 102-104. They break and respond to OTC meds.

I have about 7 more days until my STI panel for HIV, Herpes, Gonnorhea, and Chlmydia are on.

Tested negative for Strep, and Mononucleosis 1/27/13

1 Question? What are the chances of experiencing ARS and a reaction as this at 3 months post risky unknown exposure

I really to mean it when I say Thank YOU to any kindly souls who will comment and help me, I'm all alone on my STI scare

Yes, I am waiting about 6 more days

I have read elsewhere that ARS symptoms at 3 months is rare or unheard of.

Its not somthing that ever happens, but if it was you will test positive on your test. Most people will go through sero from 2-4 weeks, very few up to 6 weeks.

Best of luck on your test results. :-)

Thank you !

May I ask what you mean "but if It was, you will test positive on your test?"

I agree 3 months is the correct amount of time for a conclusive test. But I believe I can totally rule out my current illness of fevers and an outbreak of rash as symptoms of HIV or ARS

Quite simple, if any of your symptoms are realted to HIV, you will test positive. If you test negative you know they are not.
