HIV through toe sucking of dried semen

Question: 

Hi I am really worried and not able to sleep properly. Please help me. Recently i visited the sex worker for the first time in life. She did a blow job with condom on and i dint go for penetration. But foolishly being foot fetishist i licked and sucker her feet for 10 minutes. Now i am worried whether if her feet had any dried blood or semen/sperm which i might have sucked. I serched through the site and others but could not get the answer to the specific scenario like mine. So can you please please help me know my chances of getting HIV through the activity ?

Answer: 

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about acquiring HIV through sucking dried bodily fluid. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be No Risk (transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario).

The scenario mentioned above does not meet the three components of the transmission equation. The transmission equation requires the exchange of bodily fluid through a high risk activity with direct access to the bloodstream (1). In this scenario there is no high risk activity or direct access to the bloodstream. A high risk activity includes: unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse, sharing needles, and mother to child (1). There was no mentioned cuts or wounds in the mouth therefore no direct access to the bloodstream (1).

Recommendation: No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a physician for other health related questions.
