Brief Answer:
More details needed .No need to worry

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing in.
I have gone through your history and symptoms.
I would also like to know-
What is the time period between your symptoms and sexual exposure?
Also do you have any genital ulcers/sore/discharge etc?
Do you have any enlarged glands in groin area?

HIV symptoms usually start after 3-4 weeks of exposure.They consist of skin rash,fever, cough ,cold,swollen neck glands etc.
Your symptoms can be caused by viral infection not related to HIV.
As you had protected sexual intercourse and condom did not break there is very less chance of HIV in your case.
If you need a skin specialist in chennai you can visit DR PVS XXXXXXX .He is experienced person in HIV and sexual diseases.

Hope this helps.
I will be available for follow up.

Brief Answer:
No need to worry.Not HIV related

Detailed Answer:
Hi Again,
Thanks for the details provided.
I have gone through all the details provided by you.
HIV will not cause such symptoms as experienced by you.They occur 3-4 weeks after the exposure.Also they will not cause itchiness and stomach problems.
However few other viral fevers can cause such symptoms not necessarily sexually transmitted.
As you have undergone a blood test I would advise you to visit a physician near you who will examine you for fever/itching/stomach pain and will treat you accordingly.
At this point of time the symptoms do not appear to be HIV related.You should not worry about STD or HIV and visit nearest physician for proper diagnosis and treatment.
Hope this helps.
I will be available for follow up.
