The only way to find out whether you got infected with HIV is to have yourself tested.
As for your arm pit lesion, it could be an enlarged lymph node, which may be caused by infection. Malignancies (lymphoma, metastatic carcinoma) could also present with enlarged lymph nodes.
It would be best to have yourself seen by a physician for further evaluation and management.
