Extended lower throat irritation & itching...

Hi...i m 26 male..and roughly abt 2 months i had an encounter with a hooker...i hav absolutely no idea abt her HIV status...we had protected sex... so only part i m worried is she lubed up my penis with condom on it...and also put some on her vagina...and her hand (i think) cud have gotten some of her vaginal fluid...so towards the end she gave me a hand job without condom and i m not sure if some of her fluid got on my penis...i hav did some reasearch and its very very low risk...but this possibility really scares me for HIV infection ...now reason of my worry is this fall i have had a really worse flu and it had never bothered me this much...althogh all the flu symtoms (symptoms) went away but i keep having a lower throat irritation and it feels like itching that make me wanna clear my throat all day, because of this i hav occassional coughing...now also my tongue feels like coated with sticky spit...on top of tat every morning my voice cracks like anything it takes a bit for it to come back...doctors did swab and found nothing...probably viral but why is it taking so long to recover?? it had lasted for more than 2 weeks... after a while it suddenly recovered with aspirin for about a week and then when the weather turned cold again i caught it back...same problem now i m stuck with same throat irritation...also doctors said i hav minimal to no visual inflammation....i must also mention that few days after i caught first flu...doc gave me 30 amoxocillin...but it gave me diharrea (i think it was cuz of amoxocillin)...so i stopped after taking 3 cuz i started feeling better...so some sources said that cuz i stopped after taking a few...tats the reason for my prolonged flu episode!! so someone pls give me some feedback on this issue?? cud this be HIV infection initial symptoms cuz of lowered immunity??? cud it be something else???

How's it going bro?!
Protected sex(handjob carries NO risk, NONE), I like it.
=)
You get 100 points for tht and you also get a bonus, you were NOT infected by HIV.
Smile bro.
I don't need to go into this because you had NO risk but I'd do it just to ease your mind a little.
2 months plus, tht's too long for ARS symptoms to show. They usually show up between 2-4 weeks. Also, they all pretty much occur around the same time.
So take care of tht flu.
Smile. Stop worrying
=)
Always use a Condom, if none are at hand, take a handjob instead.

Condoms are not alwasy 100% effective, only when they are used properly, they 99%.
