Brief Answer:
HIV unlikely so relax and take supplements.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thank you for query. I am Dr Bharatesh D Basti answering your query.

You had a protected intercourse.
The symptoms you had initially and later are not specific to HIV.
Even deficiency of vitamins B12 other vitamins can lead to oral and peri orificial lesions even the hand burning sensation signs due to peripheral neuropathy.
As the tests are all negative including PCR test.
So you can allay the fear of HIV .
Take the vitamin supplements B complex and Vitamin D Supplements on consultation with your doctor.
You can clean the perianal area with warm water twice daily.first try with simple antifungal creams like clotrimazole.
So relax have a balanced diet with extra proteins and all vitamin supplements. Do some exercises meditation yoga and forget all these to reduce your anxiety.
You can get back for any clarification .

Wish you good health.
Thank you
Dr Bharatesh

Brief Answer:
Fungal rash likely.

Hi
Thank you for follow up query.
There is no particular date/time to tell negative.But all the tests are negative.
So you can totally allay the fears.there is no need for further test.If you still fear go for test after 6 months to remove your anxiety
The itching may be due to perianal dermatitis .or Fungal infection likely since hot humid weather favors fungal infection.You can use antifungals like clotrimazole .if does not subside consult dermatologist
You are becoming too anxious.
Allay all fears of HIV.

Hi
Thank you for follow up query.

The chance of acquiring from unprotected intercourse with a positive HIV patient is 1: 200 to 1: 2000 .
Yours is protected intercourse and the status of HIV in the partner may be negative. so you need not worry .
Again all the tests are negative.
So you can totally allay the fears.there is no need for further test.
If you still fear go for test after 6 months to remove your anxiety and be free for ever.
The gums swelling may be due to deficiencies of vitamin B or c .So as earlier said please take Complete Vitamin supplements with B and C in it.
You are becoming too anxious.
Allay all fears of HIV.
