Hello, would 1 isolated mouth sore at 11+ weeks post exposure be a symptom of HIV? How long does the mouth sore usually last? Does it hurt? Mine is more of a dull pain. I have had no other symptoms and have tested HIV negative at 9.5 weeks. I plan to get tested again at 3 months & 6 months. Thanks in advance.

Not as an isolated event. Sounds like a cold sore to me. MH
