Thank you for asking your question at DoctorSpring.
I would be pleased to answer your question. Even though oral thrush can occur in states of immunodeficiency like HIV and Diabetes, it can also occur in normal individuals with otherwise no disease or immune deficiency.
The penile lesion could be a fungal lesion. The increased urinary frequency also needs evaluation. If you can provide a clear photograph of the lesion I will be able to help you better. Anyway you will need a baseline blood test, Fasting Blood sugar, Urine Routine and culture and a HIV test. Since you had safe sex the chance for HIV is less. Even Though unprotected oral sex carry some risk of HIV transmission, for all practical purposes the risk is low. Neverthless it is safe to get a simple antibody based HIV test done.
You will need treatment for the oral thrush and the penile lesion (after a conclusive diagnosis.)
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to ask followup questions

Thank you for your response. If I understand it right safe sex will not give me HIV. As for oral sex, there are low risks. How about sucking boobs, does that give oral thrash or HIV?
I have used a cream for the penile area for a month, there are no changes as of it. I have not lost any weight and I go to the gym 1 to 2 times a week. I work 3 times a week and I go to university 4 times a week. I am able to work late and I take a nap from time to time.
I eat 3 to 4 meals a day. I eat a lot and have noticed that after a good meal my stomach suddenly feels empty and my stomach rumbles. Is that cause for concern?
As for the oral thrush it is still there, I have a bit of difficulty swallowing. Should I be worried?
I have decided to be tested and will be my results this thursday. What are the chances with of this information that I am HIV positive?
My cuts heal and I have no fevers or nail issues. My eyesight is fine and I do have headaches from time to time.
I have uploaded a picture of my penile issue. Am I alright or is there cause for concern?
Thanks for your reply. I can understand your concern.
I checked the picture you sent. However I couldn't really appreciate any pathology. Probably is not visible in a photo. It would be the best to visit a doctor to let him examine you and come to a diagnosis
Sucking of breasts would not give HIV or thrush unless there is preexisting thrush on the breast itself.
Stomach rumbling doesn't sound like a cause for concern. However when you visit your doctor he could just palpate your abdomen for any concerns.
If oral thrush is causing difficulty in d swallowing is time to get it investigated and take oral anti fungal medication like fluconazole for it.
All these could be festures of an immunodeficiency or diabetes . But not necessarily hiv.
From your description apart from the Oral thrush no other features point towards HIV.
Hope this helps. Take care
