I went to the hospital complaining of chest pain thinking my blood may be infected due to an infected broken tooth, they gave me a blood test the doctor came back and told me my heart was perfectly fine I had no sign of cancers or viruses. At the time i was just developing a rash which I brushed off as a minor irritation and since then it has spread around the neckline of my shirt and upper chest it kinda light red on the outside and pink on the inside about ten of them the size of a skittle they don't itch and eventually went away but not before others took their place does this sound like an hiv infection, a rash due to broken tooth which I have unwisley left untreated or just a nuisance harmless rash I have also developed some pain in my shoulder which I'm not sure why this has all been within a month please help to put my mind at ease it has totally taken over me I also have a very safe sexual history
