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.
