    Should I be worried?

    Recently, I’ve noticed some weird things going on with my health. I have what I think are canker sores on my gums, a fever that seems constant (but not too severe), nausea and dizziness on-and-off. I’m slightly concerned that it might be something bad like HIV (which would be bad because if I have it I’ve probably already spread it), or maybe something else. Any second opinions? Thanks

I was not sure if my hands touched those blood spots but then after maybe an hour, I was very thirty and....

    HIV concern..

    I am a straight 21 year old male. I had unprotected sex for the first time on June 25 with a girl for a few minutes. I started with a condom but could not finish so I took it off for the end. A few days after, I developed a lot of pain in my groin area and legs. I went to my doctor and he said I have an infection and prescribed me penicillin. It turned out to be a muscle strain after an MRI and pain pills. However, I finished the medicine. About 7 days into the medicine treatment, I developed a rash....
