Tiny, red, non-itchy bumps

I have developed these tiny, red bumps on my right wrist, under my neck & one on my foot. They are not really itchy, but they are red and raised. They have only grown a TINY bit. Could this be an hiv rash? On my wrist, there are 5 spread out bumps, I have 1 on the top of my foot & about 5 going in a line right under my neck. They don't itch. The ones on my wrist are really red. They aren't blisters.

Do you have an HIV risk you would like to discuss?

Yes. I had unprotected sex on August 14th. I developed these bumps a couple days ago. I haven't really had any flu like symptoms. No fever, no swollen lymph nodes. I did have a cold a couple days ago (sneezing, runny nose, sore throat). I have had joint pains but I had them for many years now. The last time I was HIV tested (in March) it came back negative.

UPDATE: I have formed 2 more bumps on my buttocks, one is big and painful like a pimple with no puss.

Unprotected sex is a high risk for infection.

Take an antibody test around 6-8 weeks, then again at 3 months for a conclusive result.
