Not HIV: Nope. That is not how HIV presents; it is not how HIV patients experience their skin; it is not hiv. It is your environment, the food choices you are making and the hygiene products you are using.

Possible not likely: Repeated fungal infections can certainly sometimes mean it is being caused by another infection like HIV but also diabetes can commonly cause them as well. Get examined and tested regularly since having unprotected sex.See your doctor for other treatment options of the fungus.
