Welcome to HCM.
Thanks for posting your query.

As you had two condom protection during your coitus with a sex worker, you will be unlikely to have HIV.

Your Western Blot after 2 months is negative and your ELISA after 6 months also came negative only.

So you need not worry about HIV and further tests are not necessary.
Your fever and skin problems after 2 weeks following your sexual experience may not be due to HIV

Wish you good luck
