Fordyce's condition and HIV

Does HIV caused Fordyce's condition? I have sex with an unknown history girl. And this Fordyce's condition appears 2 weeks after the incident. My question: Does HIV caused Fordyce's condition?

Thank you.

Hi,

I am glad that you posted here.

Fordyce spots is not caused by HIV.

However, in this case it would also be desirable that you are examined for other STD as these may appear similar to Fordyce spots.

I should remind you that unprotected intercourse is dangerous and you should take adequate precautions to help in this regard.
