HIV Rash is a disseminated rash that generally affects the trunk of the body. It does not itch, and is generally large. This is part of acute retroviral syndrome (ARS), the prodrome for HIV. About one half of newly infected HIV patients will get this symptom, or other symptoms of ARS - including malaise, night sweats, and general "flu-like" symptoms.

Chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and HIV can cause body rashes outside of the genital area. Herpes and syphilis can affect any body part, so initial symptoms could be found anywhere; the second phase of syphilis can cause a rash. Rash is an uncommon symptom of HIV, but is possible. Rash with chlamydia is related to a rarer complication and may be accompanied by inflammation of the structure of the eye. Body rash with gonorrhea is a later-stage symptom, and may be accompanied by arthritis. Rashes can have many causes, and self-diagnosis is not reliable. See your health care provider to find out what's causing your rash, and to get screened for STDs.
