Is there a risk for HIV?

Hello all,

Firstly greatly appreciate the work you guys do!

A couple of weeks ago I had gone to a csw. We engaged in unprotected oral and protected vaginal(condom did not break). After we finished, she said she was having pain and went to the toilet.

Since the incident, I have noticed an increase of pimples around my body.

Does the above incident warrant an HIV test? If I do take one what are the chances of it returning positive?

Protected sex is never a risk for hiv if the condom never breaks and for oral sex too is also the same case.

The oral was unprotected
Your situation involves personal contact with an object in air  (her hands, mouth etc. which is not a risk for hiv.) No worries, because you can't get hiv from personal contact except unprotected penetrating vaginal or anal, neither of which you did and you didn't share hollow needles to inject with which is the only other way to acquire hiv. Analysis of large numbers of infected people over the 40 years of hiv history has proven that people don't get hiv in the way you are worried is a risk.
HIV is a fragile virus in air or saliva and is effectively instantly dead in either air or saliva so the worst that could happen is dead virus rubbed you, and obviously anything which is dead cannot live again so you are good. Blood and cuts would not be relevant in your situation since the hiv has become effectively dead, so you don't have to worry about them to be sure that you are safe.
There is no reason for a person to test when they are safe. hiv isn't like Covid which infects in the air so you are worrying about the wrong virus.
Doctors can't diagnose from symptoms so no one here pays attention to them so you shouldn't either, even if you had a risk.

The only ways adults get HIV is unprotected vaginal or anal penetrating sex or sharing IV drug needles. This, therefore, is not a risk.  Yay, you can stop worrying.
