Hi

Thanks for posting your query.

You mentioned about your sexual activities in 2006 and 2007; and also mentioned that you had been tested your blood for HIV which came negative.

Now could you clarify about how long after your last contact the blood test for HIV was done? If it was tested 3 months after your last sexual contact, you need not worry about HIV at all, unless you have new unprotected contact.

Besides that, the current symptoms are unlikely to be due to HIV.

Penile blisters may either be due to some allergy / irritation to soaps / antiseptics or infection (yeast or Genital Herpes). The chest and arm lesion may even be due to insect bite as it is localized. YOU CAN SEND FEW OF THE PICTURES OF YOUR LESION. I can comment on it better.

Alternatively you can consult a dermatovenerologist at Kuwait, they can be able to diagnose and treat the symptoms.

Get well soon!
