Welcome to e health forum.

The possibility of HIV infection in the exposure described is highly unlikely. In addition, the symptoms of HIV would not present within hours of any possible exposure.

Most likely cause of your symptoms would be due to common viral infections (common cold) which are common when you come in close contact (as during handshakes during meetings, kissing, sexual intercourse, etc) with new individuals, when nasal or oral secretions can be passed on to infect others.

Every person would carry various pathogens on his person. This may be on the skin or in his secretions (nasal, skin, etc). The person would have immunity to such bacteria, as a result of long term association. But if a different person comes into contact with him, the germs (bacteria or viruses) may be transmitted to them and they may develop symptoms as they may not be immune to the particular strain of virus/ bacteria.

Most of these cases improve on their own within a few days without treatment. Some measures like adequate rest, anti-inflammatory medications (advil, tylenol), good diet can help in recovery.

If the symptoms are severe and troubling, consulting your doctor for proper prescription medications (including antibiotics- if required) can help you recover.

The need to test for HIV or other STDs can be decided if you suspect your partner to have other sexual partners or has been confirmed to have STDs.

I hope this helps.
