Possible HIV rash!!

Hi Guys,

i have been having a rash across my chest for about 1 and a half months now, and it is itching and looks like small red bumps which are characteristics of an HIV rash. I am really freaking out about it, i have not had any high fevers after exposure though i have had hot flashes and chills, and now a sore throat after 2 months. I only received unprotected oral sex which is supposedly risk-free but do you think these rashes are ars rashes? please help
