Had protected oral sex with a sex worker, had chapped lips later. Am I infected with HIV ?

I had protected sex with a sex - worker around 2 months back. I kissed her on her lips many a times and was about to perform oral sex on her and touched my mouth on her vagina for a second or two, but quickly restrained. Immediately. After 2 days I had chapped lips and after 2 months, I now have fever and sore throat. Does this mean that I am infected with HIV?

Hi thanks for your question.
The symptoms you described are of AIDS.Antibodies to HIV are detected in blood usually after 3 weeks to 6 months after infection but can be detected as early as 2 to 6 weeks after infection.Consult a physician who may be able to get your HIV test done to rule out or confirm HIV infection in you .
Hope this answers your question.
