Thanks for the query.

Red lines around eggs are not the sign of any STD or HIV. Ulcer or discharge of genitals is common symptoms of STD and early HIV manifestations are 'FLU' like presentation. So you need not worry about STD or HIV at present.

Blood test for syphilis will become positive after 4 weeks and HIV PCR test will be highly sensitive after 4 weeks for HIV. So you can go for these tests.

You can consider consulting a specialist in genital disease who can tailor the aforementioned tests. Though I am sure the test will be negative, the results of the test will get rid of your doubts.

Please always practice safe sex strictly in future and be happy...

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need further assistance.
