Your lymph nodes get swollen whenever ur body fights an infection, it could be even a simple infection that doesnt need any medical assistance. What u hab described has nothing to do with hiv, dont over think. If the lymph nodes pains and doesnt go away on its own then consult a doctor ofcourse not a hiv doctor qs hiv does not transmit at saloon.

HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug users
Mother to child
