Hello there...I can understand your concern. You can get your hiv 1 and 2 test done at any diagnostic center. They are routinely done. If you are finding privately practising dermatologist costly, then why don't you go to a hospital associated with a medical college. They will be very economical. If what you are suffering from is fungal infection, it doesn't require any injections. Consult the dermatologist with all your previous prescriptions so that they can treat you better. Even diabetics also can get recuurent fungal infection. So better your sugar levels also checked.
