Red face Help needed pleaseeeeee!!!!


You all are totally amazing in providing me with an insight to my condition, but I adore your patience in dealing with me.

With regards to my spots, I would characterize them as raised, some of them being flash colored, or some of them being red, pretty tiny id say and they behind post inflammatory scars ( very small ones ) when they go away. In addition to this, i've got a couple of red spots on the willy which went away when I applied this cream called Fucidin prescribed to me by my dermatologist. He diagnosed me of having folliculitis , hence the cream and Augmentin which really hasn't helped me much I must say.

These spots are rather moody fellas since they come and go as and when they please which is causing a lot of anxiety in me. I took a second opinion from a HIV specialist yesterday and he indicated that the red spots on my willy are contact dermatitis while the ones on my body were folliculitis. So I am kinda sitting at the crossroads trying to wonder what medications are going to make them go clear, and how long is it before they go away.

Would anyone please share their thoughts on this? This is all happening for the first time to me and I havent had a history of these spots before this besides the normal red spots that you'd have on your back.

A little background before all of these appeared.

1) I was offshore for 5 weeks working on the drilling deck at some 43 degrees celcius daily

2) I was taking maximum amount red meat ( pork, beef ) and seafood for a duration of around 7 weeks - later on after that duration I took a blood test and was found that I was having high HDL & LDL, high uric acid, high triglycerides, and high GGT

3) The location i was staying at wasn't the cleanest of all I must say.

4) I was extremely stressed and anxious that I might have caught HIV as I was looking at those spots that I had never seen before ( don't know if these spots had always existed on my back, they might just have ) and I hardly slept well during the 5 weeks offshore

I got back to my home country and did the test after 6 weeks and was tested negative on ELISA 3rd generation and my latest test was at 51 days for HIV antibody Rapid Test, negative again.

Please advice me guys, im freaked out.
