Groin swelling and skin rash


Hi, I had unprotected sex last on the 19th March. I had an STI test on the 14th April and the results came back as clear for everything. I now have swollen glands in my groin and a skin rash.

I am really worried it is HIV but I haven’t had sex since March and the last STI result was negative. My local GUM clinic is not taking walk-ins due to covid -19

V worried. Should I be? @Dr_Paula


Hello @LD8824

It is very difficult to advise on this type of symptom over the internet.

Your local clinic should definitely see you. Almost all clinics are offering telephone appointments. During the telephone appointment they will talk through your symptoms and. your risk factors and make a decision about whether they think that you need to be seen.

Many thanks
