Luckily 2 days is not enough time to have symptoms of HIV infection, so that is not the cause of your symptoms. HIV takes about 2 weeks at least to cause symptoms. Even herpes takes about 4-5 days before symptoms develop.
You may have picked up pubic lice ("crabs" or Pediculosis pubis). These can spread in your pubic hair, armpit hair and other warm, moist areas. Scabies (mites) are also possible, and people can get symptoms within 1-4 days...these dig into your skin and can cause intense itching.
You should see your doctor for a thorough check-up.
Also have yourself tested for HIV to know your status. If you are negative, you can get education about safer sex practices to remain negative, also you would need follow-up testing after your sex encounter at 6 weeks, 12 weeks and 6 months, also get a test for syphilis and other sexually transmitted infections.
