ok. you need to get tested. get a duo/combi test as soon as you can as an indication and get tested again 3 months post exposure.

bear in mind, that if the condom only slipped during withdrawal at the end of intercourse you didn't have an exposure.
If you it slipped during intercourse and the tip of your penis was exposed while penetrated then do the tests in the order i mentioned. don't judge by the symptoms. rashes can be caused by many other causes. the odds are in your favour. hopefully your resuts will turn out negative.

is a duo combi test similar to antigen p 24

yes. but it won't be much use after the fourth week (post-exposure).
thats why i said do it quickly. please don't get stressed out by the word quickly. as i mentioned your result is much more likely to turn out negative, but testing is required if the slippage happened during...

no, a good indication. only a test 3 months post exposure will be confirmation enough.

That DUO test you had was a good result,however it will need to be followed up by an antibody test at 3 months for a conclusive result.

You said your exposure was condom slippage not condom breakage??  

Was the head of your penis at any time uncovered when you penetrated her?
