Spring Break Mistake

I am a nineteen year old female who made a HUGE mistake during a recent Spring Break Trip. I was totally wasted and had an unprotected encounter with a guy. It only lasted a matter of minutes, like less than 5, and he did not ejaculate; there was also brief oral sex (me to him), which lasted under about 2-3 minutes or so (no ejaculation). Well about 2 days later I developed a rash all over my back, including my buttock. This was on March 13th, the encounter was on the evening of March 11. I also had a sore throat for about a day, which could've come from being on the windy beach every night for an entire week wearing only a swimsuite. Anyway, I'v been pretty fatigued lately but that's semi-normal because I do have Anemia; but I've also experienced what I think may be hot flashes, I'm honestly not sure though, its just that lately I feel really hot sometimes and I don't know why. My doctor says I'm just stressed from school and work. I googled all of my symptoms and HIV popped up! I'm EXTREMELY concerned because I do not know this guy at all. He was a black college male who attends school in Orlando, FL. I'm definately trying to find a free clinic near my home but I'd like to kow your thoughts on the situation and how long I should wait before being tested. Thank you so much.

If you had unprotected penetrative anal or vaginal sex then you need to test 3 months post exposure. If you only had oral sex you don't need testing for HIV.

So so you think my symptoms sound like those of someone infected?

Symptoms will never tell you anything about your status. The only way to know your status is by test.
