scared that i have HIV rash.

first off hello to everyone on this forum. Well i will try to make it brief, but last week on wednsday i noticed a strange rash in front of my neck on my adams apple, it itched and was swollen a little. I asked my mom what it could be and told me not to worry, it may be a bug bite. But i have never had such a rash before. My concern arouse after about friday, i started looking up causes and it threw at me shingles, meningitis, and HIV rash. Which scared me, because ive always been afraid of getting hiv. But now im freaking out, i will describe this rash. Its a cluster of small bumps spread maybe a inch wide, it itch but when i scratch its a little painful, last week the lymph node on the left side

2. Have you ever had unprotected sex before?

You have not even had an HIV risk. Spend some money on a therapist to help you with your anxiety.
