Not HIV. Cellulitis?: HIV doesn't cause leg pain or swollen lymph nodes in one location such as groin. And impossible to have HIV with symptoms at 8 weeks with negative HIV test. HIV definitely is not the cause of this problem. Maybe cellulitis (skin infection) or some other sort of inflammation in your leg? See doctor ASAP, especially leg is sore or tender or you have fever. You may need an antibiotic. ...Read more

Possibly: Herpetic ulcers are usually very painful. Syphilitic lesions are usually painless, but so are some benign lesions. Your sexual history and high risk behavior would help determine likelihood that lesion was due to a STI. I recommend seeing cliniician or going to an STD Clinic, which most county health departments have. Get evaluated, tested, and treated if indicated. Take care! ...Read more
