Hello Sir,

I have psoriasis on my fingers, Last week i visited a massage parlor, she rubbed my body with her breast and kissed my nipple, later she gave oral sex with condom, oral sex was too short not even a minute, i came out. From then i am worried of HIV. Condom was fine it dint break and i dont think her saliva touched my psoriasis fingers, I just used my fingers to remove it. but still worried about HIV. I never touched her pussy and she dint removed her panties/short, Do i need to take any test now, Please suggest me on this.

Hi there, thanks a lot for your question to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

It seems you're worried about the possibility of HIV being transmitted through various activities during an encounter at a massage parlor. We're happy to provide you with some information here that will help you better understand the risks involved in this situation, and in general.

It's great you used a condom for this encounter, as condom use substantially reduces the risk of HIV being transmitted through all activities. Considering you were wearing a condom while you received oral sex, all of the things you described are no risk activities. For HIV to be transmitted, it needs direct access to the bloodstream, and is not transmittable once it has left the body. This is even the case given the fact that you had psoriasis on your fingers.

For more information on what is required for HIV transmission, check out our transmission equation. Note that saliva is not considered a fluid involved in transmission:
HIV TRANSMISSION EQUATION


BODY FLUID
+
ACTIVITY
+
DIRECT ACCESS TO BLOODSTREAM
---------- -------- ----------------------------
• blood (including menstrual) • unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse • vagina
• semen • sharing needles • anus
• pre-cum • mother to child (in specific cases) • urethra in the penis
• rectal secretions • open cuts and sores (in theory)
• vaginal fluids • other mucosal membranes
• breast milk • points of needle injection
We do, however, recommend regular HIV testing for all sexually active people. If you aren't being tested regularly we'd encourage you to do so, otherwise a test after this encounter is not necessary. It sounds like the psoriasis flare up on your fingers is minor, but we would also encourage you to speak with a healthcare provider to help you resolve it.

Thanks a lot for your question to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline, we hope you find this information helpful.
