Am Scared to death

Hi, in November 11-14, 2013, I had unprotected vaginal sex with a prostitute back in  Nigeria. I came to the UK in January 2014. In February 2014, I suffered a thorough flu like fever which gave me chills and made me feel like vomiting though I did not vomit. I also remember being nauseated easily and sweating at night and feeling better in the morning. I was rushed to the hospital and no diagnosis could be made even with a blood test sample. They alleged it could be some cold or change of environment. Subsequently since last year, I have been having this itchy and rashes on my body. Recently too pimple has joined in. I noticed at the beginning of this year a boil on my eye the inner part and in my ear. I also noticed the wax of my ear being blue on the cotton bud once I tried picking it out. My tongue is also now real white. I am having a bit of sore throat now. I have also been having a dry cracked and charred lips that I am easily picking off. This once caused a sore on my lip. It healed after I applied a cream. The present charred lips has refused to heal even after I started applying a cream on Saturday
Please could this be HIV.

As I talk to HIV workers here in Australia, unprotected vaginal sex is very risky. Symptoms could be misleading. Please get your blood test asap. Dont worry evrything will be fine.

I have conducted the test which is yet to come out but can the symptoms start 3 months after exposure?

3 months is too late for ARS, we will pray and hope for a negative result. for the mean time, make yourself busy and stop googling. I know what you feel because i've been there. The anxiety is unbearable. but be strong and have faith. it will turn out well.....
