Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
I understand your concern.
Firstly let me reassure you oral sex has extremely low incidence of spreading HIV, actually its only theoretically possible, but i am yet to come across a case who became positive after oral sex.
If you tested negative at the end of 6 weeks, and took the rapid test, it has extrmely good sensitivity and you're negative. Especially the 4th generation tests nowadays have accuracy rate of around 95%, and they give conclusive results at the end of one month itself.
From the symptoms that you developed post exposure, it points more towards Gonorrhoea. Did you get yourself evaluated for other STDs at that point? What antibiotics did you take?
What are your present symptoms? Do you still have the rash in the neck? Will it be possible for you to upload the picture of your rash for me to get a clearer picture?
Again i will end my reassuring you that it is not HIV, and you're negative for it.
You need to be treated for the other symptoms that you're having now.
Awaiting your reply,

I have attatched a pic of my neck rash thanks..
Thank you for your response.
Since you were given antibiotics following the exposure, and you do not have any genital symptoms like burning or discharge from the urethra, any swollen lymph nodes in the groin, you need not get tested for STDs now.
I have seen the pictures of your rash and it appears to be mainly allergic in nature with a component of infection. It is not shingles because you do not have any pain.
If the itching is more in the nighttime and if any other member of your household has similar complaints, scabies has to be ruled out. I would suggest that you consult a Dermatologist for a complete examination and appropriate management.
Meanwhile, I suggest that you take tablet. Levoceterizine 5 mg, once in the night for 5 days. This will reduce the itch. You can also apply the antibiotic Neosporin ointment over the rash, 2-3 times daily.
I don't see any pimples with hair in the middle in the images, but from your description, it sounds like folliculitis (infection of the hair follicle). Shaving can trigger this. You can apply the same antibiotic ointment, Neosporin over these too.
As for the corns, make sure you wear good quality footwear and if they are very painful or cause of discomfort, you can get them removed by a general surgeon.
So in summary, nothing major to worry about.
Let me know if I can assist you any further.
