Skin gets dry and itches when covered, joint pains, muscle pain over itching site, had sex earlier with a sex worker. Conclusion?

I have itchy skin and it is at shoulder , arms, legs, on back and legs. I observed that it is dry and itches when it is covered. Also take a note that since last two days , I am experiencing pain in joints , muscles especially in the area where I had Itching and Rash . Rash do not remain but it disappears after sometime of Itching/ scratching . I just want to highlight that 5 weeks before I had a sex with sex worker. The intercourse was not complete due to erection problem as I was drunk. I used condom which was kept in my wallet. I have this skin problem since last 3 weeks ( 2 weeks after possible exposure). Since than I am very tense and cant even sleep. I used HIDROCORTSONA cream and after that I am feeling confortable but skin still cont itching some time.

Welcome and thanks for posting your query to HCM.

Let me reassure you first that your rash and symptoms are not related to any sort of HIV infection to say it boldly (which you are not able to ask).
After reading your query it appears that you are quite worried about the possibility of HIV infection and its manifestation as a rash in yourself after the intercourse.
The best thing in your part of exposure was wearing a condom which provides you the best protection. Even if we think of possible exposure then the symptoms you are experiencing are very early. In HIV the symptoms appears after about 8-12 weeks of exposure.
So do take care of simple viral rash and do not take much stress.

With good health wishes
