HIV Transmission

Feeling infected after visiting massage parlour

I visited a massage parlor 11days before and post massage, therapist asked me that i need a HJ but i denied it. Then i started suspecting the place, like if the therapist is infected with HIV/possible semen/blood could have present over bed which i ad laid down.

Also, i have few pimples on my back with dry state/black colored state could allowed virus to get inside.

So, i started thinking like what if therapist could have previous client semen/blood in her hand/oil used might capable of hosting a virus.'

I also suspect the therapist could intentionally infected through her saliva/vaginal/blood from her hand cut(assuming as when i turn on other side) pouring on my shoulder because im not trusting the place that i visited since they offering HJ service.

Symtoms i have:
1.After two days started feeling fever and continued for three days
2.My HIV fear begins on fifth day then on sixth day i wnt to clinic to check my BP was high and no fever its within body temperature 98.6f however i started feeling hot flashes on same day and next two days.
3.on fifth day, i started feeling gum/cheek pain on right side
However i started feeling hot flashes on same day and next two days.
3.on fifth day, i started feel mouth gum/cheek pain on right side and loosen mental stability upon observing these symptoms.
4.from 7th day onwards am having difficulty in GL(bowl moement as am no abe to free my stomach)
5.had three night sweats but not severe
6.lost weight upto 3.5kg
its been 12days, m unable to come out of the stress and weight loss making me so sad.
These symptoms mostly related to HIV infection.
Please advise is there any caase similar to mine/ should i be worried??

Since i have not done any sexual activities but still am suffering from symptoms.

feel like my life is gone and sometimes feel good when i see comments about raw vaginal/anus intercourse/mother to child can infection occur. But not sure about current infections.

Facial Extraction

Good evening.

Last year I went to do a facial to remove black heads.

The tool used was a comedone extractor. One end is a loop and the other end is a lancet.
It looks something like in this link:

I had a lot of acne and blackheads at that time.
I don't remember if the lancet was used on me. If I remember, I only remember the loop being used on me.
However, I shouldn't make assumptions.
I asked the staff how they cleaned the equipment and they said that they only drenched it in rubbing alcohol.
They said that they boiled it, but another staff said that they only drenched the lancet and the loop with alcohol (asked a few weeks after).
After that they clean it with tissue.

I had a lot of acne at that time so there was bleeding. I remember them using their gloved fingers to pop the pimples. I don't know if a lancet was used to pierce
the pimples.

This happened in Hong Kong so US sterilization rules don't apply here. The people that did the procedure on me didn't speak English so I had trouble communicating with them. I think they didn't boil the comedone extractor tool as shown in the picture.

This post says that the risk is negligible: http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/blackhead-remover-risky-0

Is it negligible in my case? Do I have to get tested? I've been really bothered by this event. Please do answer.
My parents told me that I'm going to be fine, but I keep worrying about the situation.

I've called the HIV helpline in Hong Kong:
https://aids.org.hk/?page_id=7700
and they said that it only involves very little blood and I don't need to get tested.
She said:
(1) Profuse bleeding needs to occur, like in a war when someone gets wounded. She said a facial wouldn't have profuse bleeding. I further searched and
i compared what happened to me with getting a tattoo. A facial would have significantly less blood exposure than a tattoo. Am I right?
(2) The needle was not hollow so the risk is lower. Lancet pricks are apparently negligible to no risk. I think there was no customer before me for at least 30 minutes
to an hour. Does this mean that the risk from a facial would be negligible to zero? There was a lancet and a loop on the other end. Pimples were popped by
squeezing.
The local free testing services won't let me get tested because they said that the scenario I explained was no in the list of risky activities.
But there was bleeding and a lancet. My mind keeps comparing it to the risk of tattoos because the skin is repeatedly stabbed. I understand modern tattoos have a
reservoir (hollow) so is high risk but other tattoos needles are not hollow if I'm not mistaken.

Do I have to get tested?
Should I worry about Hepatitis C too?

I need someone that has proper English to clarify my situation. Please it has been bothering me.

Thank you whoever you are for answering.

Bite Tongue After Oral Sex

I had anal oral sex about 3 weeks ago. After I finished I washed my mouth out with peroxide like I normally do. This time I accidentally bite my tongue causing it to bleed after I washed my mouth out. I'm worried because i'm not sure all the germs escaped my mouth. This was like 15 minutes after oral sex. I'm not sure how long anal mucus remained in my mouth or if the peroxide washed it away. I would hate to hear that someone's anal mucus was able to get in the sore from the tongue bite. Not sure how all that works. Since then I've been having post nasal drip mild flu symptoms like sore throat.

Blood on condom after sex, any HIV risk?

Hi,

Last week I had sex with a woman and wore a condom the entire time. When we finished and I pulled out, there was blood on the condom. She later today me she thought she was done w/ her period but evidently not.

I carefully took off the condom and there was no blood on my skin, penis nor base. I get a bit paranoid with this stuff. Is there any chance I could have contracted any disease?

Thank you.

blood mixed with lignocaine splash onto eye from hiv+ who is on ART

I am recently exposed to a hiv 1 patient during tooth extraction via blood mixed with about 1 ml of lignocaine in a syringe, I felt a resistance during pushing the piston of the syringe. Suddenly the blood mixed lignocaine leaked and splashed to my eyes. I washed my eyes immediately with water and asked the patient about any disease history and he told that he is hiv positive and on ART SINCE last 5 years. I told our chief MO about the incident and he suggested me to Start PEP.. I STARTED PEP within 2 hours TL and LR( tenofovir with lamivudin and lopinavir with ritonavir) and also checked my recent hiv status which came out negative... The ICTC CENTER also informed me that the source patient is on ART his recent cd4 count was nearly 560 and pt is well controlled.. My last information is I washed the syringe to remove the major blood from the transparent portion with water before drawing 2nd time lignocaine.and the retained blood from needle and hub was then mixed with 1 ml of lignocane... how much risk in this situation ? please enlighten me... i am from India

mr

Hi,

6 days ago I fingered a prostitute and engaged in vaginal sex (with a condom).

For the last 4 days in the mornings I have felt OK, but after noon getting a bit tired (at work I want to take a break quite often, very hard to focus on work because of my worrying) and falling asleep early (at around 9 PM, but sleeping well). I feel good in the mornings, but as the day progresses, I start getting fluctuating visual problems (it is sometimes a bit harder to sharpen focus with my sight), but it all goes back to normal very quickly and then appears mildly again. My eyes look OK. But the visual problems make me worry the most. Throughout this whole time I am super nervous and thinking about having possibly contracted HIV all of the time.

Can visual problems be a sign of early HIV?
