Dried 3 day blood in condom

about a month ago from an online buying/selling application I bough some condoms and they arrived about 3 days later and on the same day I used one of the condoms and ejaculated in the condom. Even though the condoms looked sealed I am still scared that the person I bought it from might have done something to it. what if this person was HIV positive and he put some of his blood or semen into this condoms and packed it and sent it to me. I know this sounds crazy but I am super worried because few days ago I got this dry little rash thing on my penis shaft which looks a lot like eczema and less like a rash but I am still scared. can someone please tell me if its possible for me to get HIV in this scenario? can dried blood that gets in touch with penis urethra give me hiv?

HIV Anal Bodily Fluids Risk

Hi,

The other day, I engaged in protected anal sex with a guy who's status I didn't know. We stopped for a second, and I mindlessly stroked my dick with the condom on. Minutes later, I took off the condom and started jerking my dick for a while. Since I touched the condom with some possible bodily fluids (I didn't see any, but who knows). Due to the possible transmission of bodily fluids, what is my risk of HIV? I'm getting tested, but I was just curious of the risk factor.

Thanks

HIV transmission from penis to skin contact (genitalia-genitalia rubbing)

Thank You so much for helping fellow individuals like myself. You don't know how much of a big change you are causing in other people's lives. My question is very simple and very short, please help me:

So I rubbed my penis with another man's penis ( No exchange of fluids, and I know this is a no risk activity ). Then I rubbed my penis with his arse and area above his hole ( MY PENIS HEAD DID NOT EVEN TOUCH HIS HOLE ). Is there ANY risk of HIV? Can there be HIV on his arse's skin? THERE WAS NO PENETRATION, WHATSOEVER. A week has passed and I see some rash on my chest and have a sore throat ( which are ARS symptoms! ) Do you recommend testing?

Thank You! You guys are my angels

Finger stimulation

I recently gave finger stimulation to a sex worker (who was on her period, which I found out after) about 5 minutes or so after I touched myself, and had a small bleeding wound on my penis. what are the chances of contraction hiv from this scenario. I thank you in advance for you help in this matter. :)

Massage Parlor B2B Rubbing

Hi, i went to a massage parlor and got a b2b massage, i was wearing a disposable underwear and she was completely naked.
At first a precum came out of me from being aroused and i could feel it cause it went through the disposable underwear and then She started rubbing her vagina on my penis ( i still had my disposable underwear on ) and the rubbing went on for about 30 seconds when i asked her to move away and masturbated until i came.
I then checked her vagina and didn't notice any vagina fluids coming from her but i am not sure if during the rubbing she did discharge any although when i touched the underwear after i asked her to move aside i felt no wetness on them.
Also please not that she was kissing me on my lips only no deep kissing and she tried to slide her tongue inside my mouth but i didn't interact with her and moved her away but her tongue did touch my lips.

Please note that 2 weeks ago i also had a massage with the same woman but that time she was wearing her underwear and i was naked and i noticed that she had the menstrual pad under her underwear not sure if she had her periods or not and i was rubbing my naked penis on her underwear and then she asked me to but my penis between her thighs and ejaculate which i did and i came between her thighs. In both incidents there has been no penetration or hand job or oral sex what so ever.

My question are:

1. In both incidents am i at risk of getting infected with hiv through these actions?
2. If the woman was hiv+ and her vagina fluids somehow came in contact with my disposable underwear does it pose a risk of hiv transmission? (Please note that the disposable underwear is not a thick fabric, and i have read on this site that if vaginal fluids come in contact with the penis opening it might be a risk of hiv transmission so i am worried that if any fluids from her vagina was present on the underwear it might have gone through the underwear and into my penis hole).
3. Is it true that once the virus is outside the host ( the woman vagina ) it dies cause it got in contact with the air?
4. And what about the kissing part where she tried to force her tongue in my mouth and i felt her tongue touching my teeth, does this oppose any risk?

I request you to please answer my query with as much detail as possible, please i have a wife and a kids and i am very worried. I promised my self never again to get into such an encounter where i put my self and family at risk.

Appreciating your kind help and apologize for some of the wards used but i wanted to be as specific as possible.

Thanking you in advance.

I Didn't Re-use the Condom, I Masturbated Externally With it

About the REUSING CONDOM post, i didn't reuse it literally, after i penetrating anally an HIV person, i grabbed the condom alongside my penis and masturbate, i didn't think there was a risk, later i realize the condom had rectal fluids. and my penis was cover all over it, that was my concern, if that contact was dangerous or not?

Im really grateful for your time and caring to all of us. Thank you.

HIV Transmission
Question:
My penis became in full contact during masturbation with the external side of an anally used condom of an HIV+ person, After the anal coitus, the condom was exposed briefly to the air (less than 10 seconds), before i started to masturbate with it, i kept masturbating and came with the condom around my penis (uncircumsided), without thinking in the risk. can you tell me how real of a risk it was?

Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of contracting HIV from a used condom, assuming the condom was used by someone who is HIV positive. Condoms are not intended for reuse, and will not be as effective in preventing HIV transmission when used incorrectly. [1]

Recommendation: Refer to your physician for follow-up

Getting HIV Blood Into Eyes ( or Mouth, Nose)

Thank you very much for reading my question,

I am currently living with serving in military and I am writing this from South Korea, I came here because I visited your website for several times
and I believe your helpline is the most reliable sources I have ever seen. ( I am sorry for the bad English)

My question is

If a couple drops of blood (one or two drops ) ( HIV positive blood) was dropped to my hand and if I did not notice them

and "after 1 or 2 minutes", I rubbed my eyes "with the hand with HIV positive blood on it" and "directly went to sleep."

In this cases, is there any chances of getting HIV?

I did check several statistic before I came here, it was saying the possibility of getting HIV from blood entering eyes is around 0.1%
but in my cases,

"I directly went to sleep ( closed my eyes for a long time, so I guess there is no air exposure during the sleeping time) "
and it was nighttime, there was no light sources including the light bulb because the switch was turned off (No UV light to destroy HIV viruses )
and the window was closed so I am afraid if there is not enough oxygen to destroy the virus

I am really worried because I rubbed my eyes and directly went to sleep, and I am worried if I did not notice the blood on the hand.

I understand the scenario is nearly impossible, but I am worried because I have never read a case or a statistic regarding rubbing eyes with HIV infected blood and directly went to sleep.

I know threre must be no blood at the time, but I am still thinking about the possibility of getting it from this situation, so I really do need your help

Thank you so much for reading such a long question and I wish you to have a great day, thank you.
