Is this a symptom?
Got a 6 week test that came up negative.  About 2 weeks ago I started getting little acne around the upper neck area, where stubble usually grows in.

Is facial/neck acne a symptom of HIV?  Does acne have any relation?  Also have a small swollen lymph node under right side of jaw.

Have had protected sex and unprotected oral sex with a couple sex workers.  Last encounter the girl was on her period and I pulled the condom off and left (don't know if the blood on my upper thighs could infect me or not).

Next day had stinging and burring during urination but no discharge, dr. Perscriped cipro for 2 weeks and it all went away.  Always had protected insertion sex, no condom breaks, but unprotected oral.

Noticed lots of pimples 2 weeks ago (23 days after my 6 week test). Read somewhere acne can be related and I started to panic.  I've always had acne, but it seems more prevalent now, ESP cuz lymph node seems swollen for 4 weeks now
