Swollen lymph nodes on neck, under chin. Wisdom teeth coming in. Normal blood tests. Any ideas?

So I been getting these swollen lymph nodes on my neck and under my chin which doesn't hurt. I have no fever, no sore throat, and no diarrhea. I do however have wisdom teeth that are coming in that hurt when I eat. I'm scared it could be H.I.V. I been to the dr and did blood work and they told me I was fine. But they didn't check for stds, what's wrong?

Hi,
It seems that during eruption of wisdom teeth there might be pocket formation at eruption point giving rise to trapping of food particles leading to some chronic infection.
This might have given enlarge lymph nodes in neck and chin.
Consult dentist and get examined.
Do garglings after taking any thing by mouth.
Ok and take care.
