Hey guys, In March I had protected sex but unprotected oral with a CSW in Russia,so I tested for antibodies in August that came back non reactive. But I had protected sex in September,my problem is I have some unexplained rash and swollen lymph nodes in my submandibular area. From internet investigation this looks like a prurigo rash. I am worried because it has been  a month now and my lymph nodes are still swollen  But not painful.
I would be really grateful for answers.

There is no risk of hiv transmission for this incident.
HIV can be transmitted via unprotected vaginal or/and anal penetration, sharing IV works in drugs and from mother to child
Take care

No risk, see your Doctor about the symptoms as they won't be anything to do with HIV.
