Very , very small red dots on your skin , a symptom ?!

in last 4 months or so i began to notice reallt tiny red dots on various places on my body , shoulders , arms , abdomen & thighs , they are not much , but like 15 total dots all around my body , so is this is an HIV infection symptom or something else ? if it is not related to HIV , so is it exactly ? i noticed that i'm developing more of these tiny red dots , and they begin to be fully visible in about 2 weeks , possible infection - 1 year ago
... please help.

and can someone please list HIV sysmptoms that hit and affect the skin in particular ? in easy and simple words please . Thanks in advance.

Re: Very , very small red dots on your skin , a symptom ?!

well, I'm not going to sit here and list skin symptoms for you becuase you shouldn't be trying to diagnose yourself! That is the absolute worst thing you can be doing at this point. You're not a doctor. Once you begin over analyzing your body, every little thing you see will turn into an ARS/HIV symptom.

The deed is done, get tested in a few months...its hard right now but try to get your mind off of it. Don't be doing research on the internet, it gets you nowhere! Relax, HIV is a hard virus to get.

Re: Very , very small red dots on your skin , a symptom ?!

hi i also have very small red dots on my skin as well and from what happen to me, my sister told me she heard a rumor going around that the guy i had sex with has aids. but when we did it he was wearing a condom and he didn't ***.so i don't know what its from and i'm to scared too get tested,but in my case i couldn't have contracted it and there is no evidence i the history of hiv testing that little red dots appear on your skin of that i know of.and the guy i sort of slept with,if there was a rumor going around that he had the virus, then why do girls keep talkin to what i'm saying is there's nothing wrong with you or me and the dots must be coming from somewhere. do you tan? cause i do. maybe that's what it is. or from lotion or soap? but i only get one *** in various places and it disappears in like a week. but reappears again.

Thanks for the replies , but these dots will not disappear , they are like permenant , it is like u used a red pen and u know , made a *** with it , and they start really , really small and then become visible to the eye ....

Just please answer my question : Are those dots related to HIV or not ?
because all the HIV skin sysmptoms don't include anything like that .

Why don't you take a blood test? If your last possible exposure was a year ago, Take a blood test as its enough time since your last exposure to show the results. You didn't mention what kind of exposure you had. Have you seen your doctor? You might have Syphilis. Try posting on the Sexually Transmitted Board. It could be anything. It could be "Keratosis Pilaris". It could be a rash. It could be anything. Go to the doctor and get it checked out.

i wouldnt worry at all...those little red dots are most likely from stress, i know when i am stressed i usually break out all over my body, and its happened since i hit puberty, so i wouldnt worry about your dots one bit. hope this helps...
