General & Family Physician 's  Response
HIV can spread through an ulcer (broken skin). In heat rash / fungal infection the skin is not normally broken, so the chances of infection are very minimal.
Still to be on the safer side you may go to any Government Hospital and get the test for HIV free of charge and with full guarantee of anonymity.

hello,
hiv spreds via transfer of blood, semen, vaginal fluid, pre-ejaculate, or breast milk.
major routes of transmission are unsafe sex, contaminated needles, breast milk, and transmission from an infected mother to her baby at birth .since you used condom there is negligible chance for to be infected. the rash in penish and sitting area to be evaluated by a dermatologist. so consult him .take care

Hi I recently had sex with a lady who claims to have no sexual diseases and her skin and everything looks normal. However within 2-weeks I have gone down with a heavy cold; sore throat, headache, constant blocked nose and my neck feels stiff. I have checked my glands under my jaw and they are pea sized. I do get over worried about things but do you think this could be hiv related

I was running a low fever and had diarhea yesterday. My joints were very achel and sore as well. Today i do not have any of those symptoms except maybe an upset stomach . I noticed when I went to shower that I was red around my pelvic area and inside my belly button. No bumos that I can see, just red and warm. Could it be like heat rash due to my being ill yesterday or is this something else?

Hi, my son has eczema and i am currently using Dermol 500 and 600, Oilatum Cream, Eumovate Ointment, Protopic and anti histamines to try and control it but he now has bad heat rash aswell. If i don t put him in a sleepsuit he scratches the whole of his body til he bleeds and have been advised not to use anything greasy while he has the heat rash because it clogs the pores and have been told to just put him in looe tshirt and shorts to help the heatrash go away but if i do this he rakes his skin til he bleeds. I have had an hours sleep per night for the last 2-3 weeks and my toddler not sleeping much either
