Hi and welcome to HCM.Thanks for the query.
these bumps may indicate swollen lymph nodes which are in most cases sign of infectious disease so it should be evaluated. hiv or hep are rare and this is the last thing to think of but mono, herpes or clamydica are much more common and can manifest with these symptoms. there are hiv tests which can be done after 6 weeks.
Wish you good health. Regards
