Dear friend,
Thanks for the query in HCM
when was your exposure?
You can do a RT-PCR test which is a costly test which is sensitive even 6 weeks after the exposure.
Swollen lymph nodes in the neck may be a symptom of any infection of teeth, scalp or mouth etc. Hence do not correlate with HIV infection.
