Kissed a prostitute, cut in mouth on frenulum, pimples on arm. HIV symptoms?

1 month ago I kissed a prostitute and at that time I had this cut in my mouth behind my upper lip on the thing that connects the lip and the gum I think its called a frenulum (not sure if it was a cut but it was very sore) Ever since then I ve had these pimple things on my arm not a lot maybe 5 or 6. Can you tell me if I got HIV s or some other diseases? My doctor said no but I just want to make sure.

Hi,
Pimples are symptoms of HIV. It can occur for any adolescent or young adults due to hormonal activity. Moreover , Symptoms of HIV following an fresh infection may take at least 5-6 years to occur, that is after one's immunity goes beyond a critical level.

Kissing is not a common mode of transmission of HIV unless it is a deep kissing and the individual's saliva contaminated with blood. Because HIV concentration in saliva is very very low to produce an infection.
So just forget about the same and be careful to avoid risky contacts without adequate protection.
