continuous itching i have had throughout my entire body but mostly legs arms and belly. Had unprotected sex 3 1/2months ago and have had the feelings since I went to the walk in clinc teice and was diagnosed with dermatitis and no allergy medicine helped whatsoever. I went and met with a family physician and was asked to perform a hiv test- i am in great shape and very healthy otherwise i am so scared
