You need a repeat 4th generation HIV assay at 1 and 3 months to be sure. These activities are labeled “high risk” for HIV acquisition and your symptoms MAY indicate HIV infection. No way to tell without a test

See your Dr: There are a number of possibilities for what could be wrong, some with serious implications. If the rash feels sandpapery, it may have been caused by strep, & could warn of further complications. Your child needs to see her dr, the sooner, the better.

Anxiety: Anxiety can cause all of these symptoms. Nosebleeds can be an indirect effect of anxiety when it also causes an increase in blood pressure. Bodyaches may be related to poor sleep and muscle tension from anxiety. Anxiety can make your throat feel tight and sore. Other medical causes include hyperthyroidism, night time acid reflux, and some rare types of high blood pressure conditions.

Pregnancy symptoms.: You may be pregnant but not far enough along to get a positive test. Keep repeating the home pregnancy test. If your tests continue to be negative and the symptoms continue then you should see your doctor.
