Your post before just told us to stop worrying. Maybe you should take your own advice?

Well, it could be a million things... the most important fact is that, judging from what you posted earlier, you tested negative for HIV after 4 months from possible exposure. Apparently most people test positive after just 6 weeks post-exposure. You tested negative 16 weeks post-exposure. So, whatever it may be, try not to overreact and associate any "symptom" you may think you have with HIV.

Just relax, sure, you may have herpes, but life goes on. It's not that bad, just take a little easier on yourself and, if you really feel you need to get tested for every possible STD under the sun to be a little more calm, do it. But trust that you sure have more chances of winning the big lottery than of having HIV.

when you scratch, you will make a small scrapes in your skin, which will in fact cause a scab. Maybe you are going someplace that there is likely to be bugs, and you are being biten (again.....you dont always know, right away....unless its like crazy). and when you scratch your arm (or wherever) for the hour (or even frequently), it will make a small red dot on the top of it. That is from you scratching. Not neccessarily the bite at all. Try NOT scratching when you get these (its not easy). but you wont get a scab, unless you scratch.

good luck, and NO not hiv at all.
