You are overreacting.  There is no measurable risk of HIV or any STD from the events you describe.  Although human bites can be pretty risky for certain bacterial infections, a bite through a shirt that did not tear--i.e., without direct contact with the biter's teeth--carries no risk of anything, including hepatitis, HIV, or other STDs.  Fingering and kissing never are risks, regardless of 'unseen' cuts (and regardless of 'seen' cuts!).  Night sweats alone are never a sign of HIV, and it sounds like they came on too soon anyway; ARS symptoms cannot start earlier than 7-10 days after exposure.

I suggest you just disregard this entire event.  It is insignficant in relation to HIV/STD risks.

Good luck-- HHH, MD

I am not 100% sure but i doubt that you can get HIV from anything that you described. Relax and try not to worry about it. You did the right thing.
