Could periodontal problems, rashes on stoamch and lesions on skin indicate HIV infections?

I got a fear that I have HIV (i had several encounter in past mostly protected with last one two years back). I went for rapid test about 38 days ago and test came out negative.

About a week back I started feeling following

1- I start feeling pain in my neck and my throat was little sore.

2- I also developed swollen gums and I went to dentist and he told me that I have "periodontal" disease i can see purple spots on my gums and they are not painful. He checked my teeth and said there in no decay , cavity and infection in teeth

3- I also had small 2-3 inch rash close to my belly button with small bumps 4 days back and my belly button bleed twice. I cleaned up the belly button and its fine now and rash have been disappeared.

4- I usually get quite few liaisons on my skins which goes away with time (it might be accene I have it from years now)x

I do not have any other symptoms.

Now my fears is either my results are incorrect and I have HIV or I got the HIV from testing center. As two people were tested before me.

Can you please respond to my following questions.

1- Is periodontal or any other symptoms I described above are the ARS?

2- Can you get HIV from testing center? Any data support this (like reusing the lancet)?

3- Is possible for ARS symptoms appear after 4 weeks. Are they build gradually?

3- How accurate my results are, they used "Clearview® COMPLETE HIV 1/2" test WWW.WWWW.WW
