Question: I woke up with this red rash this morning. it's only on this section of my chest. Should I be alarmed? I had unprotected sex early february, before the 8th of February and was tested August 27th for hiv. it was negative. could the test have been wrong and this be an hiv rash?

Brief Answer:
This rash is not due to HIV so don't worry.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXX,

Welcome to HCM.

You had unprotected sex in February and the test result for HIV was negative in August than you need not to worry at all as you are free from HIV.

As far as red rash on the chest is concerned it is mostly due to some allergy or other infection but not related to HIV. For this you can take tab Avil and consult your local physician for further management.Be relaxed and move ahead in life.

Thank You

Dear XXXX,

There is nothing to worry about and it is not looking to be leukoplakia from your history. For further clarification you can consult your local physician and go for some investigations to isolate the cause. Be relaxed and move ahead.

Hi. Today when I brushed and scraped my tongue, I noticed I had these long white hair type things. I have never had this before and I am really freaked out. I do smoke but recently cut way back so I don't believe that is what caused it. Will this go away on it's own, or do I need to go see someone? I also noticed I had two big bumps on the side of my tongue. They don't hurt at all, they are just really red.

Hi, I have a white head spot on the posterior lateral tongue , it looks shiny and white. It has been there for 3 weeks, and although I have been to show it to a dentist he didnt think it was a cause for concern but did not say what it may be. This was over a week ago, and the little spot is still there. It is painless but if I do try to probe it, it feels like there is something on my tongue bothering me. thanks
