facing severe skin lessions. Can it be hiv?

Hello doctors, I need urgent help. I am having severe skin lessions on my whole back. They usually come as small acne and then permanently turn black and leave mark.

I had unprotected sex 9 months back and I have checked myself 6 months back for hiv( p24 test) and result was negative.
My skin has also become very dry and  getting dark. I had high fever when I tested for hiv and doctor gave me medicines to remove fever.
So is it true that the hiv result was false negative? Should I go for test again? I am freaking out as so many people are saying that hiv antibodies are detectable for sometime but not forever. If that is the case how can I conclude that I m not having hiv?  Mayb in my case the antibodies just went away with fever medicines and then I tested false negative?

Please help hiv specialist panel and doctors. Please guide me.

You have tested conclusively negative for HIV.  Once antibodies are formed, they will always be present, and those antibodies have been shown to be detectable by 6 weeks post-event, at the very latest.  Your test at 6 months confirms that you do not have HIV.

I have no idea what is causing your symptoms, but it has nothing to do with HIV.
