        Going by the multiple 4th Generation HIV tests that you have done, all of which were clear, I would say you do not need to worry about HIV.
        Your symptoms sounds a lot more like HSV
        But the itching could well be die to scabies or lice
        On other words, see a Doctor. Get yourself diagnosed
        Do not worry about HIV

            Dear doc, as you said it could be hsv, however my query is that without any genital or mouth ulcer and only one itchy rash at leg and back of knee can be called hsv? till today I do not have any genital or mouth sore.

              Dear kal_007,

              To be human is to have the occasional red spot or bump or rash. Not everything is attributed to an STD. If you are worried about HSV, get yourself tested. HSV is not curable. Having said that, HSV is a very common infection and the majority of the population will have it by the time they are old and the symptoms are usually just mild.

              Thank you

                  Thank you for your question. The HIV test is conclusive. You can move on. There is no requirement to perform any additional RNA PCR test.

                  HSV flare does not subside just by taking anti histamines but instead, the anti histamines can help reduce the symptoms of itch if present. HSV flare can subside on its own eventually without treatment but can resolve quicker if anti viral medications are taken.
