Hi I recently had sex and the condom burst but I quickly pulled off within a second after I felt it snap. Mistake I did was to try wipe dry my dick using hands. Its now been a month and 8 days since the accident. I have a sore throat ,muscle pain, joint pain,headache,fever,chills,a rash that looks like its filled with water and a few bums all over my body like I ve been bitten by mosquitoes,my penis sometimes feels burning inside after I have a piss sometimes my testicles feel sore for no apparent reason. Could I be hiv positive or other STD . I know hiv isn t related to the questions you answer but I can t test now as tests will show nagative for now even if I am positive. Please help

Welcome to HCM.

Sore throat, muscle pain,head ache, fever, chills, rashes can occur to anybody even in the absence of HIV. Mosquito bite allergy can also cause rashes. Burning sensation of penis and vague pain sensation f testicles can occur with other STDs.
Possibility of HIV can ruled out by a test with P24 or DNA PCR test as you are not yet crossed 12 weeks after the risky exposure.
If you consult your physician , he will guide you properly.

Get well soon.
