HIV transmission through jock itch and testing

Hello!

I had a protected vaginal sex. This was my only sexual intercourse for 3-4 month period. I used condom from beginning to end. There were kissing and oral sex (I didn't give, only received for 20-25 seconds and she didn't have a place which is actively bleeding as far as i saw)

But the problem is: I've been dealing with jock itch for a long time. I itch the place between my groin (left and right side of the penis/leg) and it's usually red-rash area. It wasn't bleeding during the sex or before the sex but I read that rashed skin may help tranmission of HIV if any vaginal fluid contacts with it. Is this true? Do I have a chance to catch HIV from my jock itch even If I used condom? (condom doesn't cover that area)

My second question is: She had a suspectful sexual intercourse. We both had tested. (4th generation Alere Determination HIV 1/2 AG/AB Combo, fingerstick) We had tested in 38th day after her possible sexual intercourse. Our tests resulted negative/nonreactive. Is 38 day enough to detect If there was antigens or antibodies? I read some guidelines and research articles and as far as i understand after 28th day (both ab and ag peaks) there may be a time which both antigens or antibodies are not enough to detect. Is this true? Is 38 day enough to understand our situation?

Can you help me with these two questions?

Thank you so much!

Cut by braces receiving blow job. What are my risks?

Hi i received a blow job from a tranny with braces. I do not know if she had bleeding gums or open sores. It was dark so i did not notice any blood right after the blow job. But when I got home I noticed minor cuts on the glande and there was a bit of my blood. I am at risk? as far as a understand is her saliva -may be with an open cut in her mouth because of her braces- vs my penis getting cut.

cuts and stitches

Hi guys!
I want to ask you some questions. I was wondering about transmission trought kissing. I know, that it's like a no risk activity, even if there are blood from HIV positive person and just small cuts in mouth of HIV negative person, is that right? Because everywhere you wrote, that HIV needs to be transmited into bloodstream of HIV negative person, so trought some really big cuts, that have HIV negative person and that needs stitches? Or for example after some dentist's surgery, right? Not just trought some small cuts, hardly noticeable? Please, answer to all my questions. Thank you!

Protected vaginal intercourse and unprotected oral sex - risk and symptoms?

Hi, I am deeply concerned about the HIV test that I gave blood for currently. Totally paranoid, can't sleep and symptoms match so perfectly I have given up any hope for negative result. I had a protected vaginal intercourse and an unprotected oral sex from an escort in the middle of august. In the month of September I noticed my lipomas increasing on my body. One grew on jawbone so I got it checked by a doctor and he suggested that was not lipoma but mostly swollen lymph node as it decreased in size as well that was early october (7 weeks). Then I got rash on my back like 2 cms which soothes when I apply cream. On middle of october I got annual blood word done and also took flu shot and tdap vaccine. I got very tired that weak, extreme fatigue. Met doctor again and she suggested wait a week if symptoms improve. It did not I got an ultrasound done end of october , it noticed enlarged liver but nothing else. first week of november (11 weeks), doctor suggested I take hiv test as symptoms are very similar to hiv, I am not waiting for results but completely losing my mind over being positive. More read online about symptoms mine match with most of them. I get joint pains, sometimes shortness of breath. I am not sure about escort's status but I am very much afraid whether I caught anything and gave it to my wife in september when there were no symptoms and since I had protected sex I did not even think about catching it. Of course I am waiting for my test results which it seems would take a week as they do both elisa and western blot, but I would like to know your opinion about my situation.

I was mugged, should be tested?

Should I consider test if I were mugged by few guys and I get injury? My hand was covered with blood, I didn't see any blood from attacker, but due to fact that my hand was bleeding, I did not recognise if whole this blood was mine or could be mixed with someone else blood.

Should I be tested if I did not saw any large amount of others blood?

Oral msm risk

Good day dears,

First of all, let me say that I'm slowly dying since I gave oral sex to another gay guy 3 months ago.
In the meantime, I've been constantly reading and exploring about my possible HIV exposure.

At the moment of the exposure, no blood noticed in my mouth, only odor coming from my wisdom crowns. I have crowns all aroung the mouth, excluding the front teeth (up and down).

I may have gingivitis, which isn't something blood-related, only one spot of gingiva looks reddish.

Okay, I don't know what to say, since I'm so anxious I can't breath. I want to go get tested but I'm so scared, since I experienced sore throat with no fever (maybe 37.2 Celsius one day) but I was constantly feeling hot, thinking this is ARS related. I was so scared, searching for symptoms and maybe anxiety made them show up.

There was not ejaculation in my mouth, but there must have been pre-ejaculation...

I'm constantly reading your forum and I must say that you all are giving a lot of good informations, this is a perfect place to ask! Thank YOU all !

So... Is gingivitis considered an open wound? Gingiva bleeding but not too much? Or what are you talking about is a big, open, gaping wound inside the mouth for a chance of transmition? I'm confused, scared to death. I can't sleep, eat, talk... My life became a big, deep, dark hole.

Are these symptons? I'm scared

Hello, first of all thank you for your help

I'm having a really bad time and I'm getting courage to test today afternoon

About five months ago I met a social worker on the street and had sex with her. The condom broke two times but was replaced the moment it happened. This was the possible exposure. I'm assuming she is possitive.

Now, after going to a field trip with friends, we got our legs bitten by insects (a lot). The thing is, my reaction is a lot worse than them. I got a lot of red bites across my legs (real red) my friends are not irritated like me.

Also, there's some white at the end of my tongue and my nose is red and irritated on the sides
