Enlarged lymph nodes

Had oral sex with csw deep kissing fingering and rubbing my head without penetration for 20 to 30 mins , no symptoms for 3months . 3 months later found 1 bump on the left back of the tongue and 1 on the right . Now I just noticed 4 more enlarged nodes . 3 nodes less then 4 mm around my butt hole , one 5 mm node in my cheek and one beneath my teeth . Really worried about hiv . And one more thing is this was my first sexual encounter with a women . I’m really worried . Can these lymph nodes enlarge due to my tooth infection because I left 2 root canal in between the process. Please help .

This answers all your HIV questions and if you think of any others, then you can get the answer if you just reread about the 3.
You had no risk for HIV so your pep was a waste of time. Even if you had a risk, it is not smart to take a medication for less days than recommended or take one when you need 2 - thankfully that is irrelevant since you had no risk, but keep it in mind next time. I wouldn't tell the wife because she will be hurt and there is no HIV disease for you or her to worry about. You can check the std forum for info on that though.
HIV is instantly inactivated in air and also in saliva which means it is effectively dead so it can't infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities. It doesn't matter if you and they were actively bleeding or had cuts at the time either because the HIV is effectively dead.  
Only 3 adult risks are the following:
1. unprotected penetrating vaginal with a penis
2. unprotected penetrating anal sex with a penis
3. sharing needles that you inject with. Knowing these 3 are all you need to know to protect yourself against HIV. The situation you describe is a long way from any of these 3.
Even with blood, lactation, cuts, rashes, burns, etc the air or the saliva does not allow inactivated virus to infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities. Doctors have calculated the risk from what you describe to be less than that of being hit by a meteor, therefore no one will get HIV from what you did in the next 40 years of your life either. The above HIV science is 40 years old and very well established, so no detail that you can add to your encounter will change it from zero risk.
You don't have any medical training so don't know what lymph is supposed to feel like or what it does, so you shouldn't be poking your body and then thinking you have diagnosed an issue. She kisses every guy in town so avoid that in future or you might end up with flu or strep throat.

Sorry, I sent it before I was ready so ignore the above and read this different advice instead.

You had no risk for HIV so a test would be a waste of time. Relax and enjoy your life.

You don't have HIV so there is nothing to test for., You might as well test to see if she made you pregnant.
You aren't a doc so there is nothing to discuss on this HIV forum about your lymph ideas, just because you think you can be like a doc.

You did not have a risk. Also,  the symptoms that you have mentioned here are not specific to HIV ARS or HIV in general.  Stop picking and proding those nodes,  they are going to get sore. HIV is not your problem.

ain’t swollen lymph nodes sign of hiv?
You aren't a doc so there is nothing to discuss on this HIV forum about your lymph ideas, just because you think you can be like a doc.
Last question, can tooth infection be a reason ?
many things can cause swollen lymph nodes however thats not what this section is for, its for HIV related questions. you do not have HIV as we all have told you,  there is nothing more to add or be said.
Thanks guys can’t tell you how much stress it was to keep this thing within me .  Cheers
