Early symptoms

If I received oral fellatio and gave cunningus over three years ago and I did not notice any symptoms. How long will it take for the symptoms of HIV to present themselves. I say this because for a job I was HIV tested the results have not come back but I am nervous. I been looking at a lot of websites and noticed that flaky skin is an early symptom. I am 21 and I have always had dry skin just around my t-zone never getting acne and dandruff. Is it possible that I have HIV or rosacea?

Hi there

From your description, you do not have a risk of HIV infection.

The first symptoms of HIV infection, sometimes called acute HIV infection or primary HIV infection, occur about 1 to 4 weeks after the virus was transmitted.
