I had a high risk exposure with a CSW a few weeks back. The condom went off and I remained exposed for at least 15 minutes. We tested in the morning and she was HIV positive. I think she is not on medication. I started PEP at seven hours after explosure. (Lamivudine, Tenofovir and Dolutegravir).
After a week, I got a rash of tiny acne-like spots on the forehead and behind the ears as well as headache and peeling of the skin on the fingers and feet. At 13 days, I developed diarrhea and pain in the lymphnodes in the neck, abdomen and groin. Today is day 18; since yesterday the pain in the lymphnodes and headache significantly reduced.
Does this mean that the PEP failed and the HIV entered the lymphnodes where it is currently replicating?
