I think i may have hiv.. Im scared please help me.

This is my story. I had unprotected anal sex about 3 months ago. i asked the guy if he was clean and he said yes. i had asked him multiple times then he finally told me to leave him alone. I have never had a fever or felt any of the symptoms liste for hiv. no mucsle pain, depression, head aches, diaharia, just this damn rash and only had a small cold. I have this rash on my foot though that has been there for almost 2 months. Im not sure if its athletes foot or an hiv rash.. Im scared to death. Can someone please give me some advice? i dont want to get tested and be put on that list.. Id ruin my life..

here is a picture of my foot rash- http://i1200.photobucket.com/albums/bb321/goten882/Picture057.jpg

" i dont want to get tested and be put on that list.. Id ruin my life.. "

so you'd rather not know and die ALOT sooner than you would if you knew and were on meds?  NOT SMART ! !

the ONLY way to know one's status is by testing.  3 months post exposure for a conclusive result

unprotected is unprotected. YOu need to take the 6-8 week test for great indication of your status. Then Follow-up at 12 weeks for conclusive result.  If ever you develop HIV symptoms / ARS it will come all together at once and will be gone in a week or two weeks not in months. Please stop diagnosing yourself it wont help. Get your test at 6-8 weeks post exposure and follow-up at 12 week.

You never had any exposure so you don't need for any HIV tests.
