Mutual masterbation and symptoms for 3 weeks

I'm a bi-curious guy who recently had a mutual masterbation session with a guy I met on the Internet. This was my first time with a guy and did not engage in any penetrative sex. He was stroking his **** and at one time took his precum and applied all over my dick and started to stroke it. I didnt think much of the incident until i started developing flu like symptoms 2 weeks after the exposure. I had slight fever, a sore throat, fatigue and swollen lymph nodes. I got myself tested using a 4th gen hiv test 22 days after the exposure which came out negative. I used a 3rd gen self test after 27 days which came out negative as well.
The flu went away but I still have a slight sore throat and one swollen lymph node on my neck. Did I have any exposure to hiv based on what I did? Can the symptoms I have be hiv related for sure?
I'm panicking, scared and depressed. Please help

Well, you are freaking out for nothing. You had no risk for HIV.  The ONLY risks for HIV are unprotected vaginal or anal sex or sharing IV drug needles.  If you had zero risk, you can't have HIV.  So, stop freaking out about that.

You had no risk for HIV. This type of activity does not result in HIV. In an adult, only unprotected anal or vaginal sex and sharing IV drug needles with infected users are a risk for HIV.

Your symptoms could be related to Covid-19 and you should get tested for that because it's extremely contagious and likely to be the issue if he was infected with it too.
