Thanks for posting your query.

Yes, it could be because of HIV, but HIV is not the only cause for it. It may be just the routinely seen aphthous ulcers, other viral fever eruptions, due to acute streptococcal sore throat.

The reasons are many.

It is good that you have taken the Co-amoxiclav.

You will be fine soon.

If in doubt, you can get yourself tested for HIV by the HIV combo tests that are available.

Hope this helps.
