Yes, rest easy!: The HIV tests are among the most accurate diagnostic tests ever developed, for any medical condition, and results always overrule exposure and symptoms. No matter how high your risk of HIV might have been at the time, and no matter how typical the symptoms, these results prove you don't have it. And mouth sores would never be the only symptom of HIV. See MD or dentist if they continue.
