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 , you shouldn't worry because there is no risk for HIV.
Having swollen lymphnode could be caused from other reasons. Please could you explain me if you have other symptoms ?
During this time I suggest to meet a doctor and to do a physical examination, ultrasound of neck, full blood count, Protein C reactive.

I hope my answer helps you.
Regards.

Hello,
Thank you writing back.

You shoyld know that for tonsillitis/ faringitis the recommandations are: penicilin 250 mg orally 4 times a day or 500 mg orally twice a day for 10 days.
But, in your case the doctor has prescribe this dosage because of the moderate growth of strep.
Yes ,I think you can take it 4 times a day after speaking with your doctor.
I suggest that you should exclude a mononucleosis as well.

I hope my answer helps you.
