AIDS Rash accompanies AIDS, after having been exposed to the syndrome for 2-3 weeks. Muscle pain, fever, headache and thrush are some of the often symptoms to AIDS rash, but not experienced by everyone. Small dark bumps off the skin vaguely and appearing on the face, neck, chest or back, is another noticeable sign. People with very light skin could experience a deep red colour or reddish brown colour of the rashes. Avoidance of direct sunlight, showers and hot baths could considerably help in relieving the symptoms of AIDS rash. Besides, over-the-counter medications like Benadryl or Hydrocortisone cream can control the occurrence of rashes.
