Is it possible to acquire HIV from Handjob ?


I am from india and I had a session with a massage therapist/csw for the first time where she used papaya cream for massaging my body and after she massaged my whole body. I was wearing the tissue paper kind of underwear which was offered by them. The massage therapist then offered me a handjob where she removed her bra and was over me and rubbed her breast against mine. there were no visible marks on her chest and she then licked my both nipples for a second to stimulate me and then she moved towards my left and she placed her nipples in between my mouth. I didn't lick/suck it. It was in between my lips for a few second and there were no visible sores on her nipples. During the session she didn't remove her underwear. The massage therapist then proceeded giving me hand-job without any lube. The handjob was kind of rough and i had a tight foreskin and she did masturbate and i ejaculated with a burning sensation and there was no blood. I didn't notice any visible cuts on her left hands and not sure about the right hand. I then cleaned myself with the same tissue underwear which i was wearing and then went to the bathroom and washed the area where my semen was on my body. I then came back to my hotel and did brush my mouth due to the fear that i might have got something from her nipples to my mouth and had a hot bath then washed my penis with antiseptic soap. The next day i saw my urethra was red and inflamed. I had fever and knee/joint pain after 2 days of massage and it went away in 2-3 days.I then consulted my GP 2 weeks later the incident as the inflammation didn't reduce. there was no discharge or pain from my penis and she gave me 500mg Ciprofloxain 2 tabs for each day for 5 days. After taking the tablet for 3 days i started to have calf muscle pain and my hands started to feel cold not sure if it was due to the AC. I still continued taking the cipro and started to feel worse. My tongue turned white and i had thrush. I felt extremely tired and had trouble sleeping at night and had night sweats,body felt warmer(3rd week from the contact as massage parlor). I browsed the internet and though i have been infected with hiv and thought this could be ARS and the anxiety literately made me even more nervous. It did scare the hell out of me. I then consulted my dermatologist and he did asked me to take a HIV(not sure if it was 3rd gen or 4th gen),VDRL & HsbAG and CBC tests and urine test as well and everything came negative and CBC was normal. This test was taken 25 days from the contact of incident and i know its too early for the tests. The doctor said everything is fine and i had throat infection where my throat was red like strep throat and had white dots on it for which he said its mucositis due to the antibiotics allergy and gave me probiotic tablets for the thrush. I once again consulted another doctor for the inflamed penis and he gave me cefixime 200 mg 1 dose for 3 days and later gave azithromycin 500mg for 3 days. I started to have diarrhea for 3 days after taking the tablet and felt bloated. Its been almost 2 months and still i have the inflamed urethra and currently applying mupirocin cream for the inflammation. My legs been aching for the last 3 weeks and also have sore kind of feeling in my groin area on both the legs and i feel like my goin lymph is kind of swollen and when i go for sleep or when taking rest my legs ache and t doesn't ache when i walk. I still quite afraid that i might have contacted something from the massage parlor and couldn't get over this out of my mind. I know hand-job is No risk event but i m quiet afraid something might have passed through my urethra during the hand-job as i had tight foreskin and uncircumcised. Could you please assess my risk from the incident ? I have been going through a lot for the past 2 months. Any piece of valuable information/comments are highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Risk of Infection HIV from sexual contact with a person of HIV positive status (without the exchange of bodily fluids)


I hope am not being silly but am concerned. I had contact with an HIV+ person over the weekend and it included fondling of breasts, buttocks and playing around with the vagina though with no underwear removed. Soon after that the lady made a confession that she was living with HIV and i kind of freaked out and since then have been concerned. What if she injected me with some blood or something to infect me(just being paranoid i guess). I have visited the doctors and refused me a dose of PEP. what should i do? Am i infected?

Worried to infect wife and child who is breast feeding

Hello and how are you? Thank you for the great work you are doing in the matters to do with HIV and sexually transmitted diseases.

My case is as follows; I'm a man and had protected vaginal sex with a sex worker about a week ago on a Friday. My worry is that 2 days prior to the incident I had popped a pimple on my testicles. The wound so to speak was 2 days old. My question is what are my odds of getting HIV and STIs through the 2 days old popped pimple from the vaginal fluids? Thank you I would really appreciate your response because I'm stressing myself with anxiety that I might have infected my wife who i slept with without a condom 3 days after the act. The very much painful part is that we have a 10 months old baby with my wife is currently breast feeding.

Concerned About Touching HIV Blood With Bare Hands

I work in public safety. I responded to a car crash where the victim had aids. I touched his arm without a glove. I did not notice any fresh blood or open cuts on him. I did not have any open cuts on my hands. Is there any risk factor for transmission? I'm concerned that I did not see any fresh or dried blood and I touched it with my bare hands.

Thank you.

Thumb poked with scalpel


At work I was using a scalpel and felt a sharp poke on my dorsal thumb, I was wearing sterile gloves on top of regular gloves (two barriers before skin). I immediately checked to see if my gloves were broken and if I was bleeding. Filling both gloves with water, there was no leak in either glove. I was not bleeding at all, and putting rubbing alcohol on my skin did not cause irritation, so I do not think my skin was broken. Patient was extremely low risk for HIV. Most of my colleagues told me that it was not an exposure, should I be worried?

Cigarette Burn!


I know there are more question about this but with a lot of factors, I only want to ask if a stranger in a bar burn me with a cigarette in my hand it's possible to get infected.

Thank You

Could I get HIV from getting cum on cut?

I bite my nails a lot and I tore skin off a few days ago and the day after I gave my boyfriend a handjob and he got cum on my thumb. I washed it off 1-2 minutes later; the place where I tore the skin off at is small but it was red and I don't think it was healed, it kind of looked like it was open. After I washed it off the area bled a bit. My boyfriend assures me he doesn't have HIV, but we don't know until his test comes back. Am I at risk if he has HIV??
