This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

why are you worried about HIV.

most rashes and red spots on the skin are not a sign of HIV.

HIV is caused by spread from sharing IV drug needles with people who have HIV

or having unprotected anal sex with people who have HIV.

I m not very sure about myself.Frankly, I had unprotected sex like 4 months ago.And I don't know the condition of girl very much as she's my friend.But now. Some tiny redspots and rashes are appearing and I can still feel the itch although there are no rashes on some parts of the skin.

thanks for uploading those photos

most of those show small pimples or blocked skin pores

the second photo shows a small area of eczema or reactive skin or possibly from a bug bite

you should try some 1% hydrocortisone cream on the area twice a day and see if it gets better

I bet it will get better.

these don't look like signs of HIV virus in your body
