HIV Transmission

cum got on my leg

so i am a man and hooked up with another man. we kissed and did oral but the cum only went on my leg and there was no open cut or anything on my leg. Is this a risk at all?

Symptoms of HIV?

Hi Dr,
Thanks for your time, Sorry for long story,
I involved in intercourse with one of prostitute, I received blow job with condom, and than I did vaginal intercourse with condom, but due too fear I stopped intercourse within 1 minute. than I asked her for hand job with condom but after 1 minute again I stopped her and told her to remove condom because still I was worried about HIV. Finally I done but I think that while she was doing hand job with condom is on. she might carry vaginal fluid on her hand which can transmitted HIV to me. I think that I might have small cut on my penis balls. after second day of the incident, I got fever ( it is like Hay fever symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and fever. everyone is suffering around me ), but than I started google about ARS and symptoms.Immediately, I am pretty sure that I had an anxiety attack. Symptoms worsened within 24 hours of internet surfing. Clogged throat, clogged ears, sharp pain under front of chin, pain under sides of jaw (no swollen nodes that I could feel), sore jaw and teeth (clenching?), sore throat( never felt pain while eating or drinking), loose stool( it is not like diarrhea), white tongue ( I felt burning after I eat spicy food ), the list goes on and on. More than 2.5 months of that incident I felt like chest pain and pain under armpit. I have asked that prostitute she told me that she is negative but I do not know whether she is lying to me or not.
No kiss or vaginal licking involve.
Please Dr Could tell me whether I am on risk or not.
Can HIV transmit by hand job?

HIV Question

Hi, Thank you for your help. This is the incident that I am worried about.

Last night, I was taking a walk with my young daughter. She stepped on something while we were walking and asked me to pull it off from the bottom of her shoe. I pulled what looked like a crumbled band aid off her shoe. Then when I dropped the band aid on the floor, I noticed that it had quite a bit of blood on it and a little bit of the blood had rubbed off on my finger. I had some hand sanitizer in my purse and I squeezed some on my hand and then I washed my hands when I got home. However, now I am scared that the blood might have been HIV positive and I got the blood on my finger. I did not notice any open cuts on my finger but, I do have some raw cuticles because I bite my nails. I am very scared.

Am I at risk of getting HIV? Should I get tested?

Thank you very much for your help.

Negative HIV antibody test 10 months after exposure to a HIV positive contact

Dear doctors,
This is my story. I had sex with a HIV infected partner, and he revealed to me his HIV positive status only when I started to have acute symptoms 3 months later after exposure when I texted him with a question, what's the matter with me, it looks like HIV and if it is, it is certainly from you and he answered me, yes I have HIV. Up to that 3 months period I had not suspected and not thought at all about any HIV. But after his confession I started to remember the prehistory. All that previous time I had an exhausted look though I didnt feel very tired. I also had some rare small night sweat outbreaks. After about 2,5 months I started to have some very small pain in the throat which after 3 months grew to a terribly full-blown flu-like episode with my pharynx hot-red and so painful, though fever grew slowly and did not rise above 38. All that time I had painful neck under the chin, which continues to this day and has not gone anywhere. This flue-like episode lasted about a week. But temperature about 37.2-37.5 lasted 2 months. Now too from time to time it rises to 37-37.2. Now often when I get up in the morning my temperature is 36.2 but the moment I leave my house for work it is often 37.2. I felt terribly tired about 1-1.5 months, I could hardly prevent myself from falling flat on earth any moment. But after 1-1.5 it disappeared almost completely. I also lost about 7 kg within a month, after that I gained back my weight quickly and even over my usual weight. From that time on my bowel gradually behaved worse, although before I have never had any problem with it. My stool about 1 month after an acute episode started to be more and more liquid. Now about about 1-2 times a week I have a perfect diarroea and this keeps going on already for more than 8 months. During the acute period my two very small hardly visible warts on the head became bloody and now they are quite bigger in size. During the acute period I started to have a coated tongue, which does not improve and continues to this day. I had HIV tests after 3,5, 6, 8, 10 months after exposure, all are negative. I have had some tender small spots in the lymphatic region in the neck and about the armpits on the chest from that period up to this time. So you can see I still have symptoms which I have never had before: sore throat with coughing (continues to this day), coated tongue, rises in body temperature, liquid stools with diarrhoea, some tiredness and weakness bringing me definitely some level down (though generally I am satisfactory). My exposure details are such. Anal sex was protected (I am on the active side), but my skin on the penis easily breaks even after small rubbing with some blood showing due to chronic fungal dermatitis. We had a lot of kisses, and there are papillomas in my throat which delay swallowing. I should explain about my fungal condition. It is chronic but spread all over the body and it is dormant. But if I rub my skin any anywhere just very little it breaks and becomes an injure. My doctor was very surprised that my fungus on the body did not disappear after many treatments with antifungals and became chronic though inactive, he said he has never seen such a case in his life. As for me I can attribute my new continuing symptoms to nothing else but HIV. Also it seems my immunity (although good enough in itself for living) is somewhat special and abnormal and can explain somewhat strange reaction of my body to HIV. Also I should say I cannot pay for PCR test, I must tell my name if I want it free, but I am terribly afraid of being disclosed. I will greatly appreciate your responses to my question what can you tell me about my case and what should I do? Can I do RNA test in your laboratory? Regards.

Bleeding eyebrow

I got a hit from an unknown guy. My eyebrow was bleeding and his fist too. Could I have been infected with this situation?

Root canal, oral sex, and canker sores.

What is the risk of transmission for the following scenarios:

1.) Get root canal on upper back tooth (next to the wisdom tooth). Dentist comments that the gums have taken a beating and to not eat on that side for a while. When a tissue is pressed against the tooth, a little blood stain is there. Later that evening, kissed someone with unknown status. No deep kissing, but not completely closed mouth either. The regular type kissing where the mouth opens a little bit.

2.) Receive oral sex (male receiving oral from female). Later that night, notice small reddish stain on underwear (which was near the oral sex) about the size of a small paperclip, but can't tell if it's blood or lipstick/makeup.

3.) Receive oral sex. Don't notice blood, but the oral sex is very deep and done passionately.

4.) Have two big canker sores inside mouth under the tongue. Deep kiss with someone with lots of tongue involved. Usually canker sores may be consider negligible risk, but what if they are two bigger ones?

Thank you.

HIV Exposure - Family at Risk - Please help!

Hello Experts,

Firstly,
Thank you for your sincere efforts in ending this HIV epidemic and sharing knowledge to help the people.
Well, I’m in dire need of your knowledge and advice to ease my throbbing fear of contacting HIV from the recent exposure.

Here is my story.

I’m 30 years old, straight, circumcised male. I tested for HIV 10 days ago, this was 100 days after a condom break (less than 2 mins) with a CSW. And test was a HIV combo Duo (ECLIA method) from a CAP accredited lab and the result was 0.21 i.e non-reactive, negative. (I believe this is conclusive).

Now, my question is regarding the recent exposure.

I went to a massage parlour, which STRICTLY does not offer sex services. The massage lady does massage and handjob. And only allows pressing and sucking of her boobs.

I was waiting in the parlour as the rooms were occupied by other customers, once a room was free, I entered after maximum of 5 MINUTES after the last customer.

I removed my shoes and walked near the table barefooted and I was literally walking on the semen on the floor left from the handjob of the last customer. And it was very sticky, and on that day, I walked a lot in my office, so my feet was tired and itchy but there were absolutely NO boils, blisters or any sort of bleeding on my feet.
Then the lady asked me to remove my clothes. While removing my underwear, my feet touched the inner cloth (crotch area, where the penis rests) of the underwear and I believe some semen from my feet could have touched the cloth.

Then I hanged the underwear on a wall hook and went to the massage table and lied on my back. I have some pimples on my back (I later checked none of them were broken), I didn’t feel any sticky dampness on the table, and I enquired the massage lady, she said that she is using a ‘single-use’ sheets for every customer.

Fearing contaminated oils, I told her not to use any oil, she massaged me with her bare hands, and I sucked her boobs, kissed her neck, forehead and cheeks (no sign of any skin diseases on her) and she did the handjob and I ejaculated.

After the whole massage session of 30 minutes, I stood up, walked on the same floor of semen to dress up and again when I put on my underwear my feet again came in contact with the inner crotch area of the underwear and I went home wearing the underwear and I removed it in home after 3 hours of journey.

Few days before this massage session, I abraded my urethral opening by wearing a very cheap underwear (scratchy stiches, but no bleeding). (I confirmed this because I took urine test couple of weeks ago and there was no organism found). And I continue to have that irritation due to abrasion PRIOR, during and after this message session.

Considering the above event, I kindly request you to answer the below question.
What are the chances of:

1. Contracting HIV (from the semen on floor) through my tired, itchy feet?
Note: The room temperate was about 21 degree Celsius (70 Fahrenheit).

2. Contracting HIV (from possible semen of last customer) from the massage lady’s hand to my urethra during handjob?

3. Contracting HIV (from possible semen of last customer) from the table through my pimples on my back?

4. Contracting HIV (from the possible semen in the crotch area of my underwear) from my feet? As I wore it for more than 3 hours, my urethra must have been in contact during this time and also had abraded, irritated urethra.

5. Do I need to take HIV based on the above incident? As the tests are expensive where I live.

6. What are chances of contracting other STDs, like Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, Hepatitis etc., from the above exposure?

7. Can I safely resume my unprotected sex with my wife?

Please doctor, please answer all my questions.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Thanks again
Kind regards,
Worried Guy

Hiv on bottle of vitamins, under the seal

Hello. You have a great site! I am sorry it may sound like a strange question. I bought vitamins in store the other day. The bottle had a protective seal on it, the one which is glued to the top of the bottle (over the hole). I lifted it up, took a couple of vitamins, and then saw some red mark , which looked like a drop of blood (smudged) . I am not sure, of course, if it was blood. But if it was, considering tablets might touched it when I took it out, and the smudge was "sealed in" between the bottle and the seal itself, (so not much oxygen) would there be a risk of me getting HIV if it was blood and it was from a positive person? I am very worried. I opened the bottle around 4 months after it was manufactured. Would HIV survive even if because it was sealed not much oxygen was touching it. Do I need to test? Thank you

Drank from a water fountain immediately after HIV affected person

I drank from a water fountain immediately after an HIV affected person did. Could I have come in contact with the virus?

Thank you,
