HIV Rash related

Hi Folks! Two weeks back I met a sex worker and we had protected intercourse and I received unprotected oral sex. I think at that time I had a fungal infection on my penis and might have had lesions! After two weeks I had flu and at the end of flu I got very itchy rash (only on few spots). It’s not clustered or widespread on my torso. Are the flu and rash ARS related?

Your situation involves personal contact with an object in air  (mouth, vagina, cuts,  etc. ). You will be happy to learn that you had no risk, because you can't get hiv from personal contact except unprotected penetrating vaginal or anal with a penis, neither of which you did and you didn't share hollow needles to inject with which is the only other way to acquire hiv - there are ONLY 3 ways to get hiv. Note that 2 of them require a penis and the third requires a hollow injecting shared needle - there are no OTHER ways to get hiv. Analysis of large numbers of infected people over the 40 years of hiv history has proven that people don't get hiv in the way you are worried is a risk.
Hiv is a fragile virus in air or saliva and is effectively instantly dead in either air or saliva so the WORST that could happen is dead virus rubbed you, and obviously anything which is dead cannot live again so you are good. Blood and cuts would not be relevant in your situation since the hiv has become effectively dead, so you don't have to worry about them to be sure that you are safe.
There is no reason for a person to test when they are safe. The advice took into consideration that the other person might be positive, so move on and enjoy life instead of thinking about this non-event. hiv prevention is straightforward since there are only 3 ways you can become infected, so next time you wonder if you had a risk, ask yourself this QUESTION. "Did I do any of the 3?" Then after you say "No, I didn't" you will know that it's time to move on back to your happy life.
No one got hiv from what you did during 40 years of hiv history and no one will get it in the next 40 years of your life either.  You can do what you did any time and be safe from hiv.
The other person's status is irrelevant when you have no exposure to live virus.

Not sure why you keep posting the same thing here for over the years, since you never believe the advice and instead tell us that you are the only one who knows what hiv risk is - despite having no medical training you only believe your own ideas when you should have zero faith in them.

Maybe you should stop going to these places since you spend years afterwards imagining that you got hiv.

Thanks for your answer! I mean no disrespect to the advice given. All three are different events and the circumstances . The event I posted now is the most recent one. The moment I saw rashes I freaked out
Your "freaking out" has nothing to do with the facts of HIV transmission, or the advice you have been given.  The risks for HIV won't change. We aren't here to manage your anxiety - you have already been advised of the risks for HIV.
All of your events were the same thing. You haven't accepted any of the advice and keep acting like something is different every time.
