It looks exactly same as ars rash.It disappered with in 4-5 days. After 2 weeks i had a sorethroat. After 6 weeks i had joint pain,muscle pain, armpit and groin pains for 3-4 weeks.

Protected sex is indeed protected if the latex condom was used properly and didn't fail.
Finding blood on your t-shirt and washing it with your hand in the sink is not a risk for HIV transmission.
Whatever is causing your symptoms, it's not HIV. If you remain worried about HIV, get tested three moths or more after the potential exposure. However, this would be primarily to calm your fears and put your mind at rest. Your excessive fears about HIV are unwarranted.
