Very concerned about exposure through frottage (rubbing our penises together). The other guy had pre-cum which got on my penis and scrotum. I had shaved my genital area earlier in the day, including the scrotum, and had nicked myself a couple of times so I had a couple of rather small  wounds. He didn't ejaculate on me. 6-7 days after the encounter I developed a fever of 99.9, chills, a noticeably swollen painful lymph gland under my right jaw, slight sore throat and sore and aching muscles in my legs and back. Those symptoms lasted for 3-4 days.  Now 4 months after the encounter I have developed tingling and pain in my feet, legs and hands which I fear is the beginning of HIV neuropathy.  Your opinion would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there, 

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the possibility of HIV transmission in the event that you had engaged in frottage, in which you described pre-cum was present. 

From the information given, this scenario is determined to be of Negligible Risk (There is no evidence or no documented cases of transmission. However, there is a theoretical possibility of transmission under certain extenuating circumstances). Contact between your penis and your partner's penis, with pre-cum exposure to the urethra, provides a potential risk for HIV transmission. Because you  are currently experiencing a number of symptoms that are concerning (tingling and pain) and these symptoms can be attributed a number of different diseases, we recommend that you refer to a physician for more personalised answers.  

All the best,

AIDS Vancouver Online Helpline, Kane
