my case
I'm 23 year old individual, working as a dentist

my case history
2 months ago I was diagnosed with dengue and hospitalized for the treatment. During that period the lymph node behind my neck swelled up, 2 in number. 2 days before being diagnosed with dengue I noticed a couple of my inguinal lymph node swelled up. After a week I was discharged from the hospital as my platelet count improved. Then I developed a rash over my body, the rash was itchy and went away in 4 days.During the rash period I could feel my other lymph nodes. These lymph nodes became normal after the rash went away.
I got the FNAC done for swollen inguinal lymph node n the result came out reactive (follicular hyperplasia).
Then the doctor put me on an antibiotic course but the lymph node didnt go down
The swollen lymph nodes are present unilaterally i.e. on the right side, plus there is one lymph node measuring 6-7 mm in the posterior cervical region of neck
my chest x ray was done- it was normal
abdominal ultrasound- normal

My exposure-
got needlestick injury last year in december.
went for elisa and rapid test after 8 months, result was index value 0.02 and cut off value 0.285, non reactive and negative respectively.

kissed a girl of unknown hiv status, while kissing she bite my lips very hard, it was painful, blood might have come out. except from this I didnt had any sexual contact in a year

while i was getting my blood test for elisa, the phlebotomist used a vacutainer needle and container, I not sure that whether it was new or used before. I belong to india thats why the concern

Could any of these could be a concern for getting hiv?

I never had unprotected vaginal or anal sex , never had any blood transfusion, never did intravenous drugs.
