Sore armpit/jaw

Hello. I seem to be a bit paranoid about STDS and am curious if there is anything to worry about.

Within the last two days my jawline has been sore with opening of my mouth and also I have noticed a sharp sting in my left armpit. Have not noticed any redness or enlargement in either area.

Additionally had a one night stand awhile back and used a condom; however, noticed she bled. After noticing this we stopped and I washed up. Have talked to a few medical professionals and they said I am not at risk for HIV due to the condom and just having blood on me is not an issue.

Due to the soreness of the armpit and jawline I am curious and planning on getting tested at some point. Should I worry? Also was in a car accident a week ago, but had none of these issues after the accident.

I would appreciate any professional opinions/advice please.

I understand that. However, w HIV the immune system has issues and lymph nodes fight off viruses. That is why I am freaking out? Does that make sense or no?

when people get hiv and theyre lymph nodes enlarge, its generalyy all the lymph nodes all over your body and they're pretty large. also a rash is a very common symptom that would come up. dude, honestly, you were never at risk with the condom. now turn on shark week before you miss it!
