Acute Hiv-infection?

Hello, I had 5.5 weeks ago unprotected sex with a sex worker. I know that this was very stupid.
 2 weeks after the infection I had a sore throat. I have that now, after 5.5 weeks still, if a bit better. After 2.5 weeks I had then got even mild diarrhea occurred occasionally in 2 weeks again. The lymph nodes felt swollen at times. A doctor and no nurse but could not feel anything.
 After just over 3 weeks ago I went to the doctor. HIV antigen-antibody test was negative. Normal blood count.
 After 5 weeks, I got 4 strange pimple. They looked just like a little bubble and are now still little red hat is pick.
 Unfortunately, I totally scared. Are these signs of an acute Hiv-infection? How safe it was a test after 3 weeks?

Hi, do you think that a p24 antigen test in isolation (no antibody) at 18 days post exposure is at all useful. My theory was that if P24 peaks circa 16 days then if I had contracted HIV there would be anough P24 in my system and it would have been positive.Do you think there is any reassurance from an 18 day p24 negative?Thanks

Subtype anexity

Doctor i did mistake of doing unprotected sex with prostitude
I did combo on 98 th day postexposure
I did pcr dna and combo on 123 rd day post exposure
tests were negative
Doctor I read that not all the subtypes of hiv1 and 2 are detected by the hiv tests
my questions are
1. Is it true?
2. In my case as my symptoms are still persisting after 4 months , am i affected from any of that subtype?
3. How long it take to come pcr dna results back after giving sample for testing?In my case I was submitted the result very early that is 2 days after but before giving the blood sample the patholgist told me that resuly will come after an week.
4.Is 36 hours time enough for the pcr results to come ?
5. i did Combo test again on 123 rd day post exposure but the index was(0.11) and last time it was (0.08) ..What is this increase in value about? I am scared of this..
6.Do Hepatatis virus(no medications) extend the window period of hiv?( i dont know whether i have hepatitis)


Hello,please help me i was worried about hiv and i had some tests
real time pcr rna test at 15 and 37 days- negativeHIV Ag(p24) / HIV Ab (type 1+type2) (CMIA) at 60 days-negative

Is it duo test?

I had a HIV blood test at 27 days post exposure.
I don't know if my test was the DUO test or not because on my result paper it doesn't say anything beside this:
Serodiagnostic HIV 1 et 2 
Premiere technique 
Methode ECLIA roche cobas
