Are my skin conditions a sign of HIV?

So I've always had skin issues. At a young age I was diagnosed with Psoriasis and Keratosis pilaris, both of which have gotten better with age. About 7 years ago, I had unprotected sex with someone who's status I don't know. I don't recall getting sick after our few incounters. But last year at the age of 27, my dermatologist diagnosed me with rosacea (which my father has) and seborrheic dermatitis. When I started researching about both I found that seborrheic dermatitis is associated with HIV. Then, not long after I got ringworm on my face. A year later I now live on a different country and colder climate, I now have eczema. Are my skin conditions related to HIV? I've never had an HIV test.

Stay off the computer. None of those skin problems are specifically related to HIV. If you had an exposure go test and obtain your results.

Thanks! I'm just concerned about the sudden increase in my skin conditions.
