negative at 4 months...but...

i was in a relationship with a girl for 6 months...and was unaware that her last partner used IV drugs(heroin)...we had unprotected sex a lot over the 6 month period...i had nothing out of the ordinary going on...but shortly after we broke up...i noticed i developed Molluscum on the genitals and buttox...i was concerned so i went to the doctor...and was tested for HIV...the results were negative...i went back to the doctor again janaury and tested negative once again...but over the last few months i have noticed i am getting moles...out of nowhere...and the skin on my face is red and itchy...this has been going on since the first test results came back...i'm just wondering...if i'm alright...because i seem to have symptoms of the virus...but i'm testing negative....could the cold weather be causing red skin...and could the moles be from being sunburnt last summer?....any help would be great...(i was negative at 4.5 months of last exposure....but was at risk throughout the entire 6 months atleast 4 times a week).
