I have a blister-like lesion on my chest, above my collerbone- It started out as a stretched, long, flat thing, slightly raised. It was almost the same color as my skin, a bit lighter. I noticed it about four months ago and thought nothing of it, thinking it would go away. I messed with it a bit, and it turned pinkish red, rose up, and then healed. But I found it again, did the same thing, and it is starting to scare me.... I had a friend with HIV/AIDS, and went to her house quite frequently. I am worried I somehow contracted it... I've never done drugs, had more than one sex partner,(I'm happily married), etc. But what if I got it from her somehow? I walked barefoot at her house, and scratched myself on a metal canister. I tried to be diligent, but what if I missed something? I have no symptoms of HIV whatsoever except for an occasional skin lesion. Is this HIV? I'm sounding paranoid, but this has been bothering me for a while. Please help. Does this sound like HIV?

  • Honestly the only advice or reccomendation I can give you is to go to a doctor and tell him/her your concerns about it. You can do a quick google lookup using the criteria of what your blister - lesion looks like to find possible results but really its hard to give you any indepth information just from a blister and no other symptoms.
