Hives a sign of HIV?

Hi Doctor

I have been getting hives (urticaria) for the last 6 weeks, I am a bit scared since I had sex about 12 months ago with a girl without a condom, she told she has HPV...but I am just wondering if Chronic hives is a sign of HIV.
I have no other symptons.

Thank you !

No, hives is not a sign of AIDS.  There are literally dozens of causes of hives, many times the cause not obvious.  Nevertheless, having had unprotected sex, you should have HIV testing, for your own good and that of any sexual partners.
