Thanks for writing in.

There are many skin manifestations of STDs. However not all involve peeling of skin and that too in palms of hands and soles of feet.

HIV will not manifest so quickly to give you complications as described by you.

I suggest you cross your fingers and wait for STD test results. As for HIV you could get that tested as well.

Please remember to use condoms during sex next time.

Hope this helps.
