White film on tongue

For a while now I have had a dull white film on the back half of my tongue that has been easy to wipe off, and over the past couple weeks have had a sore throat that seems to get better over the day.  My main concern is Thrush because 3 months ago I had sex with a woman, and I do not know if she had HIV.  I have just gone into the dr for test and am pending results.  Is this thrush?  I've seen pictures, but it does not look as prominent as thrush.  Also it is only on the back half of my tongue nowhere else in my mouth.  Plus I have tiny white dots on my lips that only show when I stretch out my lips.  They have been there for 3 months or possibly more I do not know what they are either.

Symptoms are not a good way to indicate if one has HIV or not. Everyone develops a white film or patch on their tongue and such and yet, they do not have HIV. I cannot say about the white dots on your lips are but if you need certainty, go to the physician for better evaluation and and get rid of the idea of HIV.
