Are these symptoms of HIV?

Dear Doctor.

I am working in Gulf. I am single 34.
last march I came to India. During my vacation. I had sex with one married girl. Her husband also working in abroad. She was not a prostitute. She was one of my friends classmate. I saw rash in both of her lower arms.
She told me that was allergy problem. Now I belive she was infected with HIV.

During sex I used condom. but I put my fingers inside . and there was a small cut in my finger
that happends 2 days before. and there was deep kissing . and she done oral without protection less than 1 min.

After 2 days of the event I felt joint pain in fingers. and a small rash came to my upper lips and roof of my mouth .

After around 35 days of this event some problems started on me:-

1 In my right side of my tounge and lips appeard white spots.
2, sore throat, reddish throat and swollen tonsil for a month. and my sound change. Red eyes for 2 days and foamy saliva
3, little swollen lymph nodes in neck and groin.
4, Very mild Flu around 3 week . a cold and discomfort feeling from chest and stomac
5,itchy Rash came in my whole body. coming and disappearing in 30 minutes
6, Neck stiffness and pain
7, 1 week there was diarrhea
8, swollen left upper eyelid one day
9, musle vibration in whole body
10, Digestion problem
11, black bloody spot in lips for one day
12, head presure
13 fatigue
14,Ear whisiling
I took Augmentin 625 for 5 days. I am fearing to go a hopital here. I told her that you have some problem. So you should take a test. she went to a doctor and done General check up . and she told she is ok.she dont have any problem . I think she did not take Hiv test. Now I am very upset and worried about HIV. As I am in abroad I cannot take a Hiv test here anonymously. I belive i am infectd with HIV.

What I want to do next? can I confirm HIV with these symptoms? If I am infected when I want to start treatment. How long I can hide this from others and family members. Is there any hope for curable medicines in my life time.

Hi, first of all these all are not hiv symptoms. it not appear so early. Symptoms of hiv are persistent fever, chronic diarrhoea, weight loss, weaknesses, lymphadenopathy frequent infection etc. However you have chance of hiv. Just go for confirmatory hiv testing once after a month of exposure. You can go with p24 antigen or pcr.treatment depends on cd4 count and viral load any many other things. Dont worry just go for that once.
thanks for using health care magic.
