I don't know about the hot flashes, I am 100% sure when I became HIV+, I had severe sore throat, etc. turned out to be strep. NEVER had strep, and just due to symptoms and hunch I have no doubt. If you're skeptical, get tested for peace of mind if nothing else. Some doctors ignore "HIV symptoms" unfortunately, I have had this experience...good luck.

if you are sexually active and practicing unsafe sex (with out condoms) then get tested every 6 months.
These symptoms are not necessarily HIV related but could be.
My first reaction was foliculitis which is itchy pimples.
