Hello. I know I have posted before but I have a question. I have engaged in protected anal sex(I was the receiver). All the times I have had sex the condom did not tear or had a leak. I have preformed oral sex and on one occasion swallowed the load. The last time I had sex was 2 weeks ago (protected). Today I felt a discomfort on the upper left of my groin area. I checked and saw a red circle and in the center it was a bump. I freaked out and began to squeeze. I squeezed and pus came out, it was brownish looking. I cleaned it and put some bacterial cream on it. I want to know if this could be a possible sign of HIV? I know I should check it out and I will, but first I want to see how it progresses for a day or two before I go to the doctors. Thank you.

Nothing you mention shows anything you should test for

Hello. I had a question. I'm not sure if it was answered. The bump that I have on my upper left groin area. Could it be a possible sign of HIV? It doesn't hurt anymore.

My concern with it is that the bump went down but it is a dark color. Like a dark purple. Should that be a concern for HIV?

I know I posted a lot but I have another question. I noticed today that I saw a purple bump. I think is a boil but read that sometimes people with HIV develop boils. My boil is the size of a penny and is my groin area. In the top center. Is it something to be worried about?
