Brief Answer:
Please don't worry , there is no risk for HIV.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you writing in healthcare magic.

Based on your history, having protected sexual intercourse and no oral sex, you shouldn't worry because there is definitly no risk for HIV.
This is just a bacterial tonsillitis caused by streptoccocus without any relation with acute retroviral syndrom.

I hope my answer helps you.
Regards.

Brief Answer:
Usually occurs about 10 days after infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you writing back.

You should know that ARS (seroconversion) usually occurs about 10 days after infection, and for most people it starts 1-3 weeks after infection.
But, some people cannot notice they have ARS because could have mild symptoms or couldn't have any .

I hope my answer helps you.
Regards.

I had tonsillitis about three weeks ago. I went to the doctor and was prescribed a Z pack. After finishing the antibiotics (about three weeks ago) I developed a rash on my face, neck, chest, and arms. The rash looks like lots of little red bumps. Sometimes they itch, but sometimes they do not. Do I need to see a doctor about this? It doesn t seem to be getting better.

I am a 22 year old female with chronic swollen lymph nodes only on my left side,which then leads to ear pain and jaw pain. I had my tonsils taken out a little over two years ago because of chronic tonsillitis. I had blood work and the only thing that came up was that my liver enzymes were really high, they were 250. I had tests done on my live and everything came back to normal. Could my liver an lymph nodes be linked?
