welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
HIV will come positive only after a window period of 4-6 months so it is early to say.Secondly the exaggerated bites if they happen it is in full blown cases & not on just exposure.So please get treated for the itchy lump it may not be because of HIV.Don't get worried if possible please get repeat HIV done after 6 months.
Till then take care .
