are my rashes hiv related?

I have rashes all over my body, my forehead, the back, both sides of rib, traps and shoulders, arms,palms,  thighs, except the chest and trunks. The rashes are pretty much itchy if i scratch it, and the rashes are also pretty much thick raised. I kinda scared for these rashes to be an hiv symptom because, the last risky activity i did was around three months ago when i had an intercourse with a hooker, and it was dry humping with our underwears off and an unprotected blowjob. I am pretty much scared right now because the rash is everywhere. I dont or not yet experience any other symptoms. I don't know whether if this is just urticaria because of an allergy, or if it really is an hiv symptom. Some of the rashes, on my rib and forehead, are non-itchy . The rashes are quite like this, https://ibb.co/b2Nmzq , but all over my body.

No, they are not HIV related as you had zero risk for HIV.

The only adult risks for HIV are:
1) having unprotected, penetrative vaginal or anal sex, or
2) sharing intravenous drug needles

Nothing else, including rubbing and oral sex, is a risk for HIV.   No penetration of her vagina with your penis = no risk.  

There is no detail you could add to this event that would make it a risk for HIV, and you do not need an HIV test, since you did not have any risk.   You should see a dermatologist about your non-HIV related rashes.

You have a lot of threads about HIv and some are deleted, so talk to your doc about your anxiety over HIV as well, because it is abnormal and mentally painful to spend so much time living in fear.
